PBR Coming to Bryan-College Station

Reed Arena to Host First Western Sports Event in Over a Decade with Aggieland Classic, April 9-10, 2021


For the first time in league history, Professional Bull Riders, the world’s top bull riders and best bovine athletes, are bucking into Aggieland. The Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour will bring the 2021 Aggieland Classic to Reed Arena on the campus of Texas A&M University. 

The first Western sports event in Reed Arena in over a decade – and first ticketed non-university indoor event since the on-set of COVID-19 – features back-to-back nights of man vs. beast action at the Home of the 12th Man. Forty-five bull riders representing six nations and three continents will converge on Bryan-College Station to match up with some of the rankest bulls to ever buck during the two days of world-class bull riding that will impact the PBR title chase. Round 1 begins Friday, April 9 at 7:45 p.m. CT, with Round 2 and the championship round starting Saturday, April 10 at 6:45 p.m. CT. 

All-important points toward the PBR World Championship, buckle, and $1 million bonus are up for grabs as riders seek to reach the 8-second whistle before hitting the dirt. The highest aggregate score over the three rounds of white-knuckle action will be the event champion, taking home bragging rights, the first Aggieland Classic championship buckle, and thousands of dollars.

Tickets for the three-round event will be available at 10 a.m. CT on Wednesday, March 10. Tickets start at $19 and are available for purchase online at PBRTIX.com, ReedArena.com or by calling 800-732-1727. In conjunction with PBR’s industry-leading protocols to ensure fan, competitor and staff safety, tickets will be sold in PODs, minimizing fan crossover and interaction between fan groups. PODs are available from 2-8 seats. 

As a part of PBR’s leading protocols that have allowed fans to return to venues safely and responsibly since July of 2020, precautions are being taken to fight the spread of COVID-19 such as:

  • All PBR personnel will undergo COVID-19 testing within 72 hours of the event. 
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-informed screenings for staff and competitors each day, and PBR personnel mask requirements. 
  • PBR’s pioneering POD seating, selling tickets in small groups, to minimize fan crossover and interaction. 
  • Social distancing will be encouraged at concessions and merchandise stands, restrooms, and other high-traffic areas.
  • Arena equipment and other high traffic areas will be disinfected throughout the event and each night.
