|

The ProRodeo Cowboys Association’s 2021 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo will see an increase in the payout at the world’s largest rodeo in December.

The Wrangler NFR, which returns to Las Vegas Dec. 2-11, will have a record-setting competition payout of $10,257,048. This amount includes guaranteed prize money of $1.2 million for all NFR qualifiers and $9,057,048 in competition prize money.

Between 2015 and 2020, the NFR paid out a total of $10 million – $8.8 million in competition prize money and $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money to qualifiers.

The increase will see round winners take home $26,997 per round and average winners earn $69,234. Each go-round will pay a total of $87,087, while the average total will pay $261,261 per event.

The stock contractor pay – which is 30% of the contestant payout – is increased to $3,077,114.

After taking place at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, in 2020, the Wrangler NFR will be back at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas this year.

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 increased purse and the coveted PRCA Gold Buckle.
