On Friday and Saturday night, the Professional Bull Riders will take their talents to Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The event features the top 35 bull riders in the world, and also the fiercest bulls the sport has to offer, including World Champion Bull, “Bushwacker”. Each rider will face off with the massive bulls to see who will make it through the eight-second, bucking battle. The sport that started in the old west tends to bring huge crowds when to returning to a city like Oklahoma City.
According to OKC-based Totally Tickets, the average price for Friday night’s competition is currently $40.00 on the secondary market, which is the cheapest option of the weekend. The get-in price for Friday sits at a fair $14.00. Moreover, the average ticket price forSaturday night’s event is slightly more expensive at $51.54. However, the get-in price is reasonable at $15.00, which is great for tickets at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Both of the options at the gate are bargains for fans looking to observe one of the world’s most exciting and dangerous sports.
Aside from top bull Bushwacker, the Professional Bull Riders will bring back Sean Willingham, the winner of last year’s event. Also, the number one bull rider in the world, Silvano Alves, is set to challenge the bucking beasts in OKC. Alves is not the only great rider taking on the challenge; the best of the best will be in Oklahoma City for the Built Ford Tough Series.
Last year, previous world champion, J.B. Mauney, took on Bushwacker in a battle of against the world’s first ranked bull. Mauney made it 3.5 seconds before being bucked off by the dangerous bull. Bushwacker may have won the matchup in 2014, but several daring cowboys now have the chance to take on the feared beast. Fans looking to perhaps witness some bull riding history might want to head out to the arena to see if one lucky rider can do the impossible.
