Planning a trip to Las Vegas to watch the Super Bowl of Rodeo – the National Finals Rodeo? We have your NFR ticket information in addition to other top Vegas events when Sin City goes Country December 6-15.

Since 1985, the National Finals Rodeo has called Vegas home. The top 15 competitors in seven different events – bull riding, bareback riding, calf roping, saddle bronc riding, team roping, steer wrestling, and barrel racing- will compete for the title of World Champion.  In order to become World Champion, one must have the highest earnings from the regular season and NFR combined. Due to the large earnings up for grabs at the National Finals Rodeo, often times the leader heading into the event is not the champion in the end. Thus, the pressure to perform well at NFR is heightened.

The World’s best will gather at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV Campus for this year’s rodeo.  National Rodeo tickets start at $48 for Balcony seats and reach $1444 for Plaza Side seats on the final day. The average National Finals Rodeo ticket, taking into consideration all 10 days, is $222.
