The Carolina Cowboys – Greensboro’s first professional rodeo team – has announced details regarding the team’s debut at the Greensboro Coliseum for the 2023 Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Team Series Homestand.
That event will take place on the weekend that summer turns to fall this year – starting on Friday, Sept. 22 and running through Sunday, Sept. 24.
And the team definitely wants the public to know that tickets for the event – called “PBR Cowboy Days” – are on sale now.
The Cowboys, the first-ever professional bull riding team in North Carolina, compete in the PBR Team Series, which has taken bull riding and turned it into a team competition.
During the first season of the Team Series, the Cowboys competed in Winston-Salem before realizing that the grass was greener in Greensboro and jumping cities.
In the upcoming season, each of the eight founding teams will compete in 28 head-to-head, five-on-five bull riding competitions held across 10 events. The team with the highest aggregate score will be the winner. Each team will host a three-day homestand, welcoming the seven other teams.
Though a lot of people in Greensboro aren’t very familiar with bull riding yet, the team is promising an exciting action-packed season under the leadership of Jerome Davis – a world champion bull rider who’s the head coach of the Cowboys and a co-founder of PBR. Greensboro’s team includes reigning PBR World Champion Daylon Swearingen, 2016 PBR World Champion Cooper Davis and 2020 PBR Rookie of the Year Boudreaux Campbell.
Tickets for the event are on sale now, and start at $20 (before taxes and fees are added). Tickets can be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com and PBR.com, at the Greensboro Coliseum Box Office or by calling PBR customer service at 1-800-732-1727.
Three-day ticket packages are available at a discounted rate.
The Carolina Cowboys team has a close connection with NASCAR. Former NASCAR star and owner of Richard Childress Racing, Richard Childress is a co-owner, and 2018 Daytona 500 Champion Austin Dillon serves as general manager.
The new season starts on Monday, July 24 in Cheyenne, Wyoming and concludes in Las Vegas on Sunday Oct. 22, when the teams will go head-to-head in the PBR Team Series Championship, vying to be crowned the 2023 Team Series Champions.
The Cowboys will also be one of the featured bull riding teams in an upcoming docuseries, The Ride, which will debut later this year on Amazon’s Prime Video service.
The action at Cowboy Days at Greensboro Coliseum will start at 7:45 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 22, 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23, and 1:45 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 24.

I bet you’re fun at parties, Scott.
With Mandate Mayors blessing we get new abused animals performing to replace the circus and their abused animals at our Coliseum. Fun for everyone except the animals and animal lovers. Just Google how many animals( and people ) are maimed and killed for ticket sales and tv money. For shame.
You can get hurt at most any sport. Ever been whacked in the cajones by a 90mph baseball?
I’d say the animals have the advantage.
I’m sure Mandate Mayor will be promoting even further about how hearing the animals screaming from torture and broken bones is helping with additional income . Or just being killed publicly for sport and prize money!!! Mandate Mayor encourages folks to bring the whole family and buy VIP parking to help pay for our Performance Arts Palace downtown.
Not sure you have ever been to a bull riding event personally I’ve been to a few a year over the last 40 years I don’t ever recall an animal being injured and I sure as he$$ never seen one killed for sport. Some people are just purely ignorant
Newspaper in CA did a recent survey of rodeo animal injuries and deaths. Some people have on blinders like the sheep they are. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2022-12-07/rodeo-casualties-for-animals-that-are-ridden-and-roped-broken-backs-legs-and-skulls
