Here's another article citing Fort Worth / Dickies.

This is a big deal...

 

The inaugural PBR World Finals in Fort Worth will be held from May 13-22, 2022 at Dickies Arena, in what event officials say will be an action-packed two weeks of activities.  The new PBR Unleash The Beast regular season will span from January-May, culminating with a seven-day championship festival, spanning two weekends of bull riding and fan activities in Fort Worth.

NFR last year (temporarily), PBR this year. Both from Vegas. Not bad.

Is Dickies going to have enough seats for this?  Is 14,000 capacity right?  What's the expected daily attendance on this event? In Schmjdt's article said Vegas had "Total attendance in 2019 was 72,300, with approximately 18,700 attending from out of state."

I imagine capacity will be just under 12000. It can be higher than the stock show since the competition area is much smaller without the space for timed events. I think the daily number there is referring to all ticketed events, like women's and junior championships as well as the signature men's. The other events will most likely be at the stock yards. Additionally I would suspect more premium seats means total gross on tickets is higher here. And easier rental since in Vegas, they are in hockey season and forced to cover and protect the ice.

Yeah.  Bull Riding isn't my sport, but if I could pick one that would seem perfectly suited to Fort Worth, this is it.  On brand.
