June 11, 2019

Rodeo ain’t just for country folk! THE COWBOY CHANNEL is hosting Rodeo New York in 2020, the first rodeo in Madison Square Garden in 29 years. Traditional rodeo events and the Western atmosphere we all know and love are coming to the big city.

Both THE COWBOY CHANNEL and The Madison Square Garden Company excited about rodeo’s grand return to The Big Apple.

Joel Fisher, executive vice president at MSG Sports, says, “We are honored to welcome championship rodeo back to New York City and The World’s Most Famous Arena in 2020. Madison Square Garden has a long relationship with rodeo dating back to 1922 and we are thrilled to bring this hugely popular western sport back to our fans for the first time since 1991.”

THE COWBOY CHANNEL founder Patrick Gottsch, shares Fisher’s enthusiasm. “The entire western sports industry is thrilled to be able to come together to bring championship rodeo back to Madison Square Garden for the first time in nearly 30 years. Every world champion cowboy and cowgirl, along with this country’s most prestigious stock owners and contractors, jumped at the chance to showcase their talents on the floor of The World’s Most Famous Arena.  New York is in for a real treat, as this will be the very best that rodeo has to offer.  We are especially enthused to be able to have Rodeo New York take place on Father’s Day weekend in 2020.  I hope that many people will choose to bring Dad to the rodeo and experience some genuine western lifestyle at this family-friendly event.”

To be held June 19-21, 2020, the Rodeo will feature all your favorite events and some of the best athletes in the Western world, all competing for $1,000,000 in prize money. Many have already committed to compete at next year’s event.
