The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, is the season-ending championship event for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and has been held annually since 1959. Since 1985, it's been held every December at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. At the conclusion of the Wrangler NFR, the sport’s world champions are determined based on total season earnings – what they win during the Wrangler NFR added to what they won before the Wrangler NFR.
The Wrangler NFR consists of 10 rounds on 10 consecutive days. Cowboys and barrel racers earn money by placing first through sixth in any round, and pick up more money by placing first through eighth in the average (cumulative times or points earned during the 10 rounds). At the end of each Wrangler NFR, there are two champions in each event (four for team roping) which includes the average winner, with the best cumulative time or score, and the world champion, who finished the year with the most money.
Tickets for the 2019 NFR range from $65 to $183 for the finals on December 14th. On the secondary ticket market, opening night tickets start at $91, with lower level tickets starting at $231. The cheapest tickets are available on Monday, December 11th and start at $70, with lower level tickets that night starting at $215. The final night has the most expensive tickets, with the cheapest tickets listed at $125, with lower level tickets above $300. Tickets are completely sold out for the event, and there is even a waiting list for fans looking to get a place line for tickets to future NFRs.
