NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Professional Bull Riders announced that tickets for the 2013 Madison Square Garden Monster Energy Invitational to be held Jan. 4-6 are available now. Following three consecutive sold-out performances in 2012, the PBR returns to the World’s Most Famous Arena in the heart of New York City for the seventh consecutive year to open the 2013 elite Built Ford Tough Series season and kick-off the 20th anniversary of PBR competition.
Two decades ago, 20 cowboys with one dream transformed bull riding into a global sports phenomenon that is now televised worldwide. Their vision and determination made PBR one of the fastest growing sports in history which has awarded over $120 million dollars in prize money over to date. The 20th anniversary celebration includes stops in at least 15 different states over 27 events on the 2013 Built Ford Tough Series tour.
The seventh annual Monster Energy Madison Square Garden Invitational will feature the Top 35 bull riders in the world and the country’s fiercest bucking bulls. Fans will be able to experience three action-packed nights of intense 8-second rides and outrageous wrecks as 150-pound cowboys – including 2012 MSG Invitational Champion Cody Nance and reigning World Champion Silvano Alves – have their chance in the arena against their 2,000-pound opponents.
Competition times are as follows: Jan. 4 – 8 p.m.; Jan. 5 – 8 p.m.; and Jan. 6 – 1 p.m. Tickets are $200, $100, $50, $35 and $20 and are available at the MSG box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com and by telephone at 1-800-745-3000. For more information visit www.pbr.com.
