PUEBLO, Colo. – PBR (Professional Bull Riders) today announced the 2023 event and TV schedule for PBR Teams, an elite league featuring the world’s top bull riders competing in five-on-five bull riding games during an 11-event season.

The 2023 PBR Teams season will include a three-day homestand event hosted by each of the eight founding teams – Arizona Ridge RidersAustin GamblersCarolina CowboysKansas City OutlawsMissouri ThunderNashville StampedeOklahoma Freedom and Texas Rattlers – and will begin with neutral site games in Cheyenne, Wyoming, while traveling to Anaheim, California for a second neutral site event in August. The Teams Championship returns to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on October 20-22.

“The PBR Teams inaugural season showed anything can happen in a team format, surpassing our highest expectations for the new league,” said Sean Gleason, CEO and Commissioner, PBR. “Seven of the eight teams were ranked No. 1 at one point. Entering the playoffs, the eighth-seeded Nashville Stampede got hot to beat the three top-seeded teams in a dramatic Cinderella run to win the Championship. During the offseason, rosters were fine-tuned, and with rivalries developing, it will be very exciting for fans to experience the drama sure to unfold as eight fired-up teams charge toward the 2023 Championship in Las Vegas.”

Every game will be carried by CBS (including seven “Game of the Week” broadcasts), CBS Sports Network (CBSSN), or Pluto TV (PLUTO). Kate Harrison returns for Season 2 as the play-by-play voice of PBR Teams with Matt West and Flint Rasmussen, transitioning to a full-time TV role, also returning to the broadcast, now joined by five-time PRCA Champion Luke Branquinho.
