The 2020 National Finals Rodeo will be held in Texas.
The PRCA, a membership-based organization, sanctions approximately 600 rodeos annually, and there are more than 30 million fans in the U.S. Competition.
Cowboys who want to apply for membership in the PRCA must first obtain a permit card and then earn at least $1,000 at PRCA -sanctioned rodeos; there is no time limit to “fill” the permit.
