Big comp for global bull riding
THE Global Cup is The Ashes of global bull riding – pitting the world’s premier bull riding nations, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico and the US, against each other in a battle for the title of Toughest Nation on Dirt.
With a unique competition format, the Global Cup is the largest team event that global bull riding has ever seen.
The event stops in each participating country, offering up record purses, with each national team fighting to retain the host country’s horn from the PBR Global Cup trophy.
The 54kg Global Cup trophy consists of five individual horns, each designed in the country’s national colours and serving as a vessel for their home dirt.
In order to complete the trophy and proclaim world dominance, one team must win and possess each respective country’s horn – but the biggest priority for each team is securing a hometown win to retain their nation’s soil and piece of the cup.
In each city, the host nation receives a home-turf advantage, fielding a 14-rider team, double the size of the visiting nations’ teams.
The event will be hosted in Sydney on June 9-10.
