Harkening back to a past format of the World Finals, reminiscent of when the year-end event was split between Mandalay Bay and Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, the first three rounds of the 2022 PBR World Finals will be held May 13-15, with the final five rounds May 19-22.

The richest bull riding event in the world features a more than $2.7 million purse, including $1 million bonus to the PBR World Champion, who also receives the coveted gold World Champion buckle, as well as a $300,000 check awarded to the event winner and a $100,000 bonus to be presented to the 2022 YETI PBR World Champion Bull.
