Every year before the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, there are cowboys and cowgirls with one main
question in mind; are you going to play ProFantasy Rodeo?
Pro Fantasy Rodeo (PFR) is the brainchild of steer wrestler K.C. Jones, and is fast approaching its 19th year of gaming during the 2022 NFR. For just $99.95 you and your friends can create the fantasy rodeo team of your dreams to compete for over $250,000 in cash and other prizes.
“The Wrangler National Finals is kind of the Super Bowl for cowboys, ranchers, rural communities,” Jones said.
PFR became Jones’ outlet to grow the fanbase of professional rodeo, putting a much-deserved spotlight on rodeo cowboys and cowgirls that has never experienced. Jones is bringing even more exciting and innovative things to PFR this year by teaming up with one of the biggest up-and-coming names in the industry: Teton Ridge.
Partnering with Teton Ridge has made it possible to take Jones’ ideas off the shelf and put them into motion, creating new experiences for fans and growing the Western Industry at the same time. He’s excited to introduce fans and rodeo committees to the new suite of Fan Games from Teton Ridge called ‘Inside Rodeo’.
Games include Rodeo Guess, Rodeo Trivia, Rodeo Race, and Over/Under, meant to engage fans in the NFR action throughout each performance. Jones is also very excited about the new Fan Experience of Teton Ridge+, “It’s going to be a game changer. Teton Ridge+ is what this industry has needed to enable fans to stay abreast of the actions of rodeo athletes,” Jones explains.
Athlete Profiles, Fantasy Corner, Instant Results, Statistics, Community Portal and Athlete Schedules are just a few highlights you will find in Teton Ridge+.
“It’s thrilling, and I want more people to
be able to experience it,” said Jones, “I’m proud to join a team of super successful people from humble beginnings who share my passion for the Western industry and the countless possibilities that lie ahead for us. I’ve been described as a guy who tackled farm animals for a living and is now tackling the technology needed to move this industry forward.”
