PBR Global Cup
For the first-time in league history, the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Global Cup will come to the United States, for the WinStar World Casino & Resort PBR Global Cup USA, presented by Monster Energy.
Featuring teams from five nations, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico and the United States, at the PBR Global Cup riders are competing for a record purse ($750,000), the very dirt they compete on encapsulated inside the horns of the Global Cup trophy, and most importantly national pride and the title of “Toughest Nation on Dirt.” As the host nation, Team USA will enjoy a home-field advantage.
Each team is comprised of seven riders, in addition to one alternate, and a rider-nominated coach. The coach, yet another unique element of the event, is responsible for leading his team and assigning all riders their bulls each night. At each event, the host nation is afforded a home-field advantage. For the U.S. event, Team USA will split into two squads, Eagles and Wolves, with the Wolves set to be historically comprised of exclusively Native American Riders.
Each night, all competing riders will attempt one bull each. Following that round, each coach will select two riders to attempt one more bull each in the bonus round. The winning team is the nation with the highest total aggregate score from their Top 12 rides.
