ARLINGTON, Texas, Sept. 9, 2020–The most anticipated 10 days in ProRodeo will go on as the first non-baseball event at the Globe Life Field—home to the Texas Rangers Major League Baseball team—Dec. 3 through Dec. 12.
“We are so pleased to be at this amazing stadium for the most celebrated event on the rodeo calendar,” said George Taylor, chief executive officer of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). “We are committed to delivering a spectacular event for our fans and we are thrilled to be in Texas for it.”
The PRCA and the Globe Life Field organizers are working closely to follow strict health guidelines and precautions to safely host spectators.
“We are excited for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo to take place this year at Globe Life Field,” said Allen Montgomery, Vice President General Manager, Wrangler Western Wear. “The health and safety of the fans, cowboys and cowgirls is of the highest priority, and we are grateful to the participating organizations for their work to put together a comprehensive plan that will allow everyone to enjoy a safe and fun event.”
Many spectators enjoyed the bright lights of Las Vegas and the many convention centers that were host to Cowboy Christmas and more. Now Cowboy Christmas, the PRCA Convention is scheduled to be held Nov. 30 to Dec. 3 in surrounding Fort Worth locations.
“We are a rodeo city and we’ve roped a big one,” Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price said. “The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is an incredible win for our region and another example of how Fort Worth can host major events safely during this unprecedented time. This summer, Fort Worth has hosted major, national events in golf, racing and bull riding. Sporting events like the Wrangler NFR are a vital part of our visitor economy that creates jobs and supports our recovery.”
