Tickets go on sale this Saturday, April 17th for the Professional Bull Riders coming to the Bismarck Event Center on June 18th and 19th. This is one of the most anticipated western sports events of the season, coming back to Bismarck for the 21st consecutive year.

For their annual home-state event, 10-time PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Stock Contractor of the Year Chad Berger and his family will again welcome the top bull riders in the world to compete at the Bismarck Event Center for the Dakota Community Bank and Trust Invitational presented by Cooper Tires.

According to a press release obtained from the Bismarck Event Center, Chad Berger had this to say, “We are excited to host this event for the 21st year. The fan and community support year-after-year means so very much to us as a family. Being able to bring the best bull riders, from world champions to rising young talent, here to compete has been an honor over the years and one I hope to continue for a long time.”

I'm thinking bull riding fans will be on the edge of their seats as the top competitors in the sport put it all on the line to gain crucial world points available at the event. The Touring Pro Division of PBR allows riders to earn points toward either qualifying for the premier tour or adding to their existing world points rank.

The Round 1 action begins at 7:30 pm on Friday, June 18th and Round 2 will start at 7:00 pm on Saturday, June 19th. Following Round 2 on Saturday night, the riders with the top combined scores from Friday and Saturday will compete in a championship round to determine the overall event winner.
