The American Rodeo Sets Record for Most Qualified Athletes in Event History

Record-setting amount of qualifiers to compete at The American Semi-Finals in Fort Worth

RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo hosted over 500 qualifying events across the country, and as a result nearly 1,500 athletes have qualified to compete at RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo semi-finals in the Fort Worth Stockyards later this month. This year’s competitors will set the record for the most qualifying athletes in the event’s seven year history.

Western athletes competing at The American Rodeo now have a chance to compete for over half a
million dollars, making RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo semi-finals one of the top 15 paying rodeos in the
world.

“It is exciting to see a record-setting amount of qualifiers for our seventh annual event,” said Randy
Bernard, CEO of The American Rodeo. “We are proud to have seen the event grow over the years. At
this rate, our event is paying out more than the Kentucky Derby does.”

The American Rodeo’s Semi-Finals will take place February 24-March 1 at Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort
Worth Stockyards. Tickets are available online for the Semifinals and Finals at AT&T Stadium in
Arlington, Texas. The Finals will take place the following weekend, March 7-8 at AT&T Stadium. Tickets
are on sale here , beginning at just $10.The American Rodeo Sets Record for Most Qualified Athletes in Event History Record-setting amount of qualifiers to compete at The American Semi-Finals in Fort Worth #rodeo #RFD-TV #eliteequestrian

“You have to go big when you do events at the historic Fort Worth Stockyards and AT&T Stadium,” said
Bernard. “We are taking rodeo and Western sports to the next level.”

About RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo
Taking place at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium on March 7-8, 2020, RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo, hosts
the richest weekend in Western sports. With $2.4 million on the line, the best athletes in the world will
gather in Arlington, Texas to battle for the biggest single paycheck of their lives. The American Rodeo
invites the top athletes from the 2019 PRCA world standings and puts them against everyday cowboys
and cowgirls who advance from the American Rodeo semi-finals. If a nationally ranked athlete wins, the prize is $100,000, but if a qualifier from the semi-finals – or an athlete who earned an exemption – wins
The American Rodeo, that contestant shares in a $1 million bonus pool. For more information, please
