(Editor's note: PRCA release)
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Our fans spoke, we listened, and the result has been spectacular.
Less than two weeks after the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) announced that the 2020 Wrangler® National Finals Rodeo (NFR) – the greatest annual event on rodeo’s calendar – would move to Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field, December 3-12, 2020, all available seats at Globe Life Field were scooped up during pre-sale for season ticket holders and public sales this morning.
With the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV in Las Vegas, home to the NFR since 1985, unable to accommodate an event with fans in person this year, the PRCA polled fans and more than 40,000 responded. Over 80% of the respondents said they wanted an NFR event that would permit fans to see the event in person.
“This is what happens when you listen to your fans and shape an event around them,” said George Taylor, chief executive officer of the PRCA. “We’ve worked closely with our partners at Globe Life Field and we’re cooperating with the state and local health authorities to design an event that will be safe and fun. The 2020 Wrangler® National Finals Rodeo is going to be one for the ages.”
Tickets for the Wrangler NFR are being sold in blocks of four so that families and close friends can sit together safely. Each block of four seats will be separated to retain healthy physical distance for fans during the rodeo performances. Contact-limiting measures, such as mobile tickets, have been implemented throughout the event. Globe Life Field is also encouraging all guests to check the CDC and the Texas Department of State Health Services websites for any guideline changes prior to the event.
If the public health situation evolves, there may be additional tickets available. Globe Life Field is working closely with state and local health officials and they have created a wait list for fans if additional tickets become available at www.texasrangers.com/NFR [r20.rs6.net]. Fans who sign up for the wait list will be given first opportunity to buy any tickets that might be made available. Limited suite rentals at Globe Life Field are still available for each performance. For information and availability, fans should email email@example.com or call 972-RANGERS.
