The Wrangler® National Finals Rodeo 2020 will be held at Arlington’s Globe Life Field on Dec. 3-12. The State of Texas knows how to do this, said George Taylor, chief executive officer of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. We’ve been impressed with how well this has come together for our rodeo cowboys and rodeo fans.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions in Nevada, the iconic live rodeo event could not be held with fans at the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV in Las Vegas, where the event has been held since 1985. According to the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the NFR will follow health and safety protocols.
We are so pleased to be at this amazing stadium for the most celebrated event on the rodeo calendar, said Taylor. We are committed to delivering a spectacular event for our fans and we are thrilled to be in Texas for it. Guests planning on attending the event can expect mask requirements, changes in ticketing, and policies on performance nights.
Seats will be sold in groups of four with separation between groups. Contact-limiting measures, such as mobile tickets, have been implemented throughout the event. There will also be metal detector screenings and a no bag policy at entries on performance nights, according to the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
The NFR will be the first non-baseball event to be held at Globe Life Field, which is home to the Texas Rangers. We are honored that the PRCA selected Globe Life Field to host the 2020 Wrangler Nationals Final Rodeo and are thrilled to be a small part of bringing this world-class event back to Texas, said Neil Leibman, chief operating officer of the Texas Rangers.
