PUEBLO, Colo. (Oct. 28, 2014) – The Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough World Finals will return to Las Vegas in 2015 and tickets for the “toughest sport on dirt” are on sale now.
For the 22nd consecutive year, Las Vegas will host the richest bull riding event in the history of Western sports. The PBR World Finals returns to Las Vegas for a five-day show, Oct. 21-25, showcasing the Top 35 bull riders in the world and the top bulls, all competing for their share of the $2.2 million total purse. One man will receive $250,000 as the PBR World Finals event winner, one bull will receive $50,000 as the World Champion Bull and one man will become a millionaire, receiving a $1 million bonus as the overall 2015 PBR World Champion.
In front of an audience which yielded an 11 percent increase in tickets sales over prior years, Silvano Alves captured his third world title in four years when he went 6-for-6 at the 2014 PBR World Finals to win $1.27 million and surpass Justin McBride as the richest Western athlete in history.
Alves is only the second man to win three World Championships – Adriano Moraes won the title in 1994, 2001 and 2006 – and was the first man to win back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012. At only 26, a fourth title seems a probability and a successful defense seems a viable possibility for Alves. The 2015 World Finals could be another historical event for the PBR that fans will not want to miss.
Tickets for the 2015 PBR World Finals range in price from $26 to $251. They can be purchased at www.unlvtickets.com, or by calling 866 PBR SHOW.
Multiple-day packages are available as well as hotel packages with the official host hotel of the PBR, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
