PBR To Provide Free Live Digital Streams of Tour Finals, Global Cup
Professional Bull Riders (PBR) has made plans for free live digital streams of two of the sport’s biggest events of the year – the PBR Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour Finals (Oct. 28-30 at South Point Arena in Las Vegas) and the Inaugural PBR Global Cup (Nov. 9-11 at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Canada).
The production will feature full broadcast teams and multi-camera set-ups.
To access the Velocity Tour Finals and PBR Global Cup digital broadcasts, fans can download the free PBR app (for iOS and Android) or visit PBR.com during the event days.
“The production quality of these events demonstrates PBR’s commitment to providing a world-class digital experience to give fans the best live access to must-see PBR events,” says Sean Gleason, CEO, PBR. “If fans can’t make it to Las Vegas and Edmonton, this is the next best way to experience some of the biggest and most meaningful bull riding events in the history of the PBR.”
Amid one of the tightest points battles in PBR history, the Velocity Tour Finals is expected to have huge implications for the world title race.
The multi-day, multi-round tournament will feature an epic battle between PBR World No. 1 Derek Kolbaba and PRCA reigning champion and current No. 1 Sage Kimzey. Five of the Top-10 riders in the PBR world standings will also compete, including No. 5 Jess Lockwood, No. 8 Joao Ricardo Vieira and No. 9 riders Fabiano Vieira and Dener Barbosa. At the Velocity Finals one rider can earn 520 points toward the PBR world standings prior to the World Finals. With the Top 5 cowboys in the world separated by only 655 points, the pressure will be intense to deliver high-scoring rides.
