One of rodeo’s richest weekends will return to AT&T Stadium in 2015.

The Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series Iron Cowboy VI and RFD-TV’s The American are scheduled Feb. 28 and March 1 in Arlington.

The Iron Cowboy VI will be Feb. 28 at 5:50 p.m. The top 24 PBR bull riders in the world will compete in a one-night, bracket-style event with a total purse of $150,000.

On March 1, The American, the largest single-day cash prize rodeo in history, offers a total purse of $2 million with $1 million divided among any qualifiers who win their respective events.

Last year, Richmond Champion won $1.1 million. He was the lone qualifier to beat a world champion in any event to win the bareback title and the $1 million side pot.

Combo tickets for PBR’s Iron Cowboy VI and The American will go on sale June 1, with prices ranging from $20 to $150. Tickets can be purchased at the AT&T Stadium Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
