NFR Access ONLY Ticket Platform Provides an All New Way to Experience the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo
LAS VEGASThe Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and Las Vegas Events announced today that they will be replacing the Mad Dash 30 with a new ticket opportunity for rodeo fans. The NFR Access ONLY ticket will provide access to the Thomas & Mack Center, but not a seat. It provides access to all the experiences at the NFR – Cowboy Corral, Aces High Saloon & Exhibit, Bull & Barrel Saloon and ProRodeo Zone – and then allows you to watch the rodeo in the designated areas. The Wrangler NFR runs from Dec. 2-11.
An NFR Access ONLY ticket will be sold for $65 (plus order fees). When rodeo fans purchase an NFR Access ONLY ticket, they will have multiple entertainment options to enjoy. Not only will attendees be able to experience the electric atmosphere that the Thomas & Mack Center has to offer, but they will also be automatically entered into an opportunity to win a pair of Premium Seats in the plaza level.

“The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo has been sold out for more than 330 consecutive performances, so we wanted to provide another opportunity for rodeo fans to experience the spectacle and excitement of the event at the Thomas & Mack Center,” said Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events. “There are so many ways to enjoy the NFR Experience on-site, and we invite fans to explore this new ticket opportunity.”
The opportunities to enjoy the Wrangler NFR experience are abundant at the Thomas & Mack Center. Rodeo fans with an NFR Access ONLY ticket will be greeted by ProRodeo Zone and the Fan Zone which include sponsor tents, live music, the official ProRodeo and Wrangler NFR merchandise trailer, food and beverage options, video screens and tables for attendees to congregate.
When rodeo fans enter the building, they will have access to all of the arena activation, including both the Aces High – Saloon & Exhibit and Cowboy Corral. Rebranded and re-energized for 2021, Aces High – Saloon & Exhibit will feature a saloon and a 2,500-square-foot, glass-enclosed balcony with Strip views. The Cowboy Channel will host their Pre-Show starting at 5 p.m. and the Post-Show immediately following the end of the performance each night. An additional highlight will be an all-encompassing exhibit detailing the 35-year history of the NFR in Las Vegas. The saloon would be a great place to take in the live broadcast of the rodeo each night as it will include a large-screen projection.
Meanwhile, on the arena’s southeast side opposite Aces High, fans can enjoy all the activities and amenities of the returning Cowboy Corral, which takes over the adjacent Cox Pavilion with live music, a huge bar and plenty of space to sit and relax or kick up your heels. The live entertainment will include The Britt Stokes Band and additional talent from Cowboy Revival each night starting at 4:30 p.m. Following the NFR, the Cowboy Corral will stay jumping with The Britt Stokes Band returning to the stage. Sitting right outside of Cowboy Corral is the Bull & Barrel Saloon, featuring its own bar and food service and the Hall of Champions with tributes to former NFR champions.
Known as the richest and most prestigious rodeo in the world, the Wrangler NFR attracts the top 15 contestants in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding to compete for a share of the $10.257 million purse and the coveted PRCA Gold Buckle. In 2019, the event had a total attendance of 168,289 over the 10 days of competition at the Thomas & Mack Center and has sold out more than 330 consecutive performances in Las Vegas.
