COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association have agreed on terms to extend their co-sanctioning agreement for the 2017 rodeo season.
PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman was pleased to reach the agreement with CPRA Representative Jeff Robson.
“We’re very happy with the job Jeff has done in steering the CPRA in the right direction,” Stressman said. “We’re proud of our co-sanctioned rodeos in Canada, and the Canadian athletes who compete in PRCA rodeos are valuable to our sport. We’re excited to extend our agreement with the CPRA for another year.”
On Oct. 19, the CPRA and Edmonton Northlands negotiators announced the Canadian Finals Rodeo will remain at its traditional home for the past 43 years – the Northlands Coliseum. The contract keeps the rodeo in Edmonton through the 2018 CFR. The 2016 CFR began on Wednesday, and runs through Nov. 13.
“Renewing our PRCA sanctioning agreement is very important to all of our committees and cowboys,” Robson said. “Our two organizations have a long-standing history of working together collectively for the betterment of rodeo. We are happy to get this done to ensure a prosperous relationship between the PRCA and CPRA.”
