GREENSBORO, N. C. – As the race to the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) 2021 World Championship heats up in the second-half, the Top 30 bull riders in the world will be seeking crucial points as they buck into Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina. Back-to-back nights of white-knuckle action take over the Coliseum on Oct. 9-10, in the sport’s first visit to Greensboro since 2019.

Greensboro has been a key stop for many riders chasing world championship dreams during the previous 12 elite series visits to the city, with winners including the likes of two-time World Champions J.B Mauney (Statesville, North Carolina) (2012), Justin McBride (Elk City, Oklahoma) (2004, 2007) and Chris Shivers (Jonesville, Louisiana) (2003) and three-time World Champion Adriano Moraes (Cachoeira, Brazil) (2001). Each Mauney, McBride, Moraes and Shivers rode their way to victory in Greensboro on their way to a PBR World Championship in the same season.
With PBR World Finals looming Nov. 3-7 and the $1 million world championship bonus on the line, the possible 140 world points on the line in Greensboro will be vital to any riders’ million-dollar dreams. The action begins with Round 1 at 6:45 p.m. ET on Saturday, October 9, followed by Round 2 and the championship round starting at 1:45 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 10. Each rider will get on one bull in Rounds 1 and 2, and the Top 12 aggregate scorers move on to the championship round and a chance at the event title.
