ARLINGTON, Texas (June 26, 2024) – Building on its success of “The American Rodeo Championship Weekend” in March 2024, which drew over 40,000 fans in attendance and 5.7 million viewers across digital and television platforms, Teton Ridge, the premier Western sports, media and entertainment company, is announcing expanded programming and live rodeo broadcasts on FOX Sports.

The 12th Annual ‘The American Rodeo Championship Weekend,’ owned and produced by Teton Ridge, returns to the home of the Texas Rangers, Globe Life Field, on April 11-12, 2025, moving from its traditional early March dates. The highly anticipated weekend, will be televised live, exclusively across the FOX Sports family of networks, with the Championship Round aired live on FOX.
