PBR OTTAWA CLASSIC RETURNS TO CANADIAN TIRE CENTRE
Saturday, June 8, at 7 p.m. – Canadian Tire Centre
Tickets are available Friday, Feb. 16, at 10 a.m.
For the first time since 2018, PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada’s elite Cup Series will buck into Ottawa, holding the PBR Ottawa Classic at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday, June 8. PBR Canada’s Cup Series regularly features Canada’s best riders alongside some of the organization’s top international athletes, squaring off against the rankest bucking bulls from across the nation. For one night only, fans will witness exhilarating eight-second rides and wrecks throughout the unpredictable, action-packed event as the PBR’s courageous bull-riding athletes face off against their 2,000-pound opponents born to buck.
The PBR Ottawa Classic will mark the sixth event of the 10-event regular season for PBR Canada’s premier Cup Series in 2024. The event is one of three stops the Cup Series will make in Ontario in 2024, travelling to London on June 1 ahead of its Kingston debut on June 5.
The return of the PBR Canada Cup Series to the home of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators comes on the spurs of a historic season for the organization. In 2023, PBR Canada increased the Champion’s bonus to $100,000, making the $250,000, year-end National Finals the second-richest finals event within PBR, trailing on the World Finals.
