Big news today from the WCRA (World Champions Rodeo Alliance) and PBR (Professional Bull Riders): they've announced the largest payout event in the history of Women’s Rodeo, the Women’s Rodeo World Championship, will move to Fort Worth starting in May 2022.
According to a news release, the relocation will start immediately after the 2021 WRWC, which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, at South Point Arena Oct. 26-29.
WCRA President Bobby Mote writes, “We are ecstatic about this forever home for the WRWC in the heart of cowboy country as we continue to change the landscape of women’s rodeo offering the world’s largest payout in the history of women’s rodeo and showcasing these athletes to the world on national television broadcast. Ushering in this new era of women’s rodeo at an event with this level of payout and visibility is something we take great pride in.”
This will be big not only for the sport of women's rodeo, but also for Fort Worth and the surrounding areas. The events will happen at both the Historic Cowtown Coliseum and Dickies Arena. 2022 Women’s Rodeo World Champions will now be crowned in the same arena as the PBR World Champion.
The Women’s Rodeo World Championship is the largest annual purse for a women’s rodeo event, and will again payout $750,000 in 2021 while crowning World Champions in Women’s Rodeo for Team Roping, Breakaway Roping, and Barrel Racing. An all-around champion will also be crowned.
