PBR World Finals Preview
In 2018, the Elite Series, or Premier Series tour changed title sponsors and the Unleash the Beast Series (UTB) tour name replaced the Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) tour name. That same year, the PBR celebrated its 25th season and awarded another $11 million in prize money which included the bonus to the World Champion Bull Rider of $1 million and the $20,000 gold belt buckle.
The PBR hosted its inaugural World Finals in 1994 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. They remained at the arena through 1998. In 1999, the PBR moved their World Finals to the Thomas & Mack Center. The PBR was stretching its current arena's limits and really needed a bigger arena. They wanted to stay in Las Vegas, so the Thomas & Mack Center was the place to go. The PBR World Finals was held at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, from 1999 until 2015. The 2015 World Finals was the 17th and last time the event was hosted at the venue
When Sunday comes, the PBR will have a World Champion and a World Finals event champion, which according to the PBR, aren’t always the same. In fact, just five times in PBR history has the same rider been the champion on both, last happening in 2019. Last year, American Boudreaux Campbell won the 2020 PBR Finals, while Jose Vitor Leme from Brazil was named World Champion. Campbell’s prize of $300,000 is nice but pales in comparison to the $1 million awarded to Leme, along with the coveted golden World Champion buckle.
