The current year’s lineup of events will be headlined by highlight specials for both the 2022 PBR World Finals from Fort Worth, Texas, and Dickies Arena, and the 2022 PBR Canada National Finals in Edmonton, Alberta, at Rogers Place.
“TSN has been the broadcast home of the elite PBR Canada Cup Series, presented by Wrangler, since we bucked our first bull in 2016, and their continued partnership is an integral component in our campaign to further elevate the sport of bull riding to new heights in Canada,” said Jason Davidson, PBR Canada General Manager. “The 2022 season will again feature 32 weeks of programming featuring the best bull riders in the world, attempting the rankest bulls in Canada, making PBR coverage on TSN can’t-miss weekly action for our fans.”
