Bull riders will be split into 12 teams and divisions and will face off until two teams remain to compete for the championship. The competitions, each Friday and Saturday in June, will be televised on CBS Sports Network with a “Game of the Week” broadcast on CBS Television Network each Sunday. 

The PBR will announce further competition details and rosters for The PBR Monster Energy Team Challenge in the coming weeks, South Point stated in a news release.
