For a second consecutive season PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada's Elite Cup Series will buck and bolt their way back into Brandon's Keystone Centre on May 27, 2023.

PBR Canada’s Cup Series regularly features Canada’s best riders alongside some of the league’s top international athletes, squaring off against the most mean-spirited bulls from across the nation, all the while trying to stay mounted on 2000 lbs of bucking, twisting and stomping for 8 solid seconds!

The Brandon event will mark the third location of the nine-event 2023 season for the PBR Canada Cup Elite Series, presented by Wrangler, stopping first in Red Deer and then Lethbridge, Alberta.  Approximately 30 additional touring pro events (Tier 2) bull riding events that help determine who qualifies into the Wrangler Cup Series, will also be included in the 2023 season.

"Being in Brandon for our 2022 event, we couldn't ask for anything more! We sold out Westoba Place and had a great night of bull-riding action," says Jason Davidson, General Manager of PBR Canada's Cup Series. "When we were putting together our 2023 schedule, we had to make sure we included your city again, it was an excellent event, and we look forward to coming back!"

"The PBR, we strive to bring you the best - always! And that's why we have the Cup Series, presented by Wrangler.  It's a TSN nationally televised series which brings the top bulls that we have in our country," shares Davidson.  "We'll have bull riders from 2, 3 possibly 4 different countries and they'll be competing for a prize purse of $20,000!"

Davidson notes the most important part of the series is the riders are competing to earn points for the PBR Finals at Roger's Place in Edmonton, where they'll be giving away $200,000 in prize money.  "So, it's a very important event, not only for the PBR, but to the contestants that do this for a living here in Canada, and for our international competitors, who also do this for a living."

Please listen to more of the interview with Jason Davidson and CJRB's Barry Lamb below.

Over the course of the season, the PBR will be awarding some $850,000.00 to top riders in 2023, $20,000 of that to be awarded at the Brandon event.

The PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada’s elite Cup Series will be in Brandon, MB, holding the PBR Mazergroup Chute Out at Westoba Place at the Keystone Centre on May 27, 2023, starting at 7:00 pm.
