The 2007 International Rodeo sold out in a matter of months and International Rodeo promoters say that the demand is greater than the amount of seats available.

The 2008 International Rodeo will feature four rodeo disciplines: bull ride, saddle bronc, bareback bronc, and an exciting cowgirl barrel racing challenge. The International Rodeo will also feature entertainment acts from New Zealand and Australia. as well as the Rodeo cheerleaders, International bull fighting champion, rodeo clowns and over 300kgs of LPG propelled pyrotechnics.

International Country and Western performer Brendan Dugan will perform live from a stage suspended from the roof of the Westpac Arena making the 2008 International Rodeo an attraction for the entire family and every age group.

Corporate hosting is another major part of the International Rodeo as companies can purchase tables seating 10, ringside with full bar and food services catered by the Wrangler cowgirls.

Spectators will be on the edge of their seats when 39 of the worlds best cowboys and cowgirls gather in Christchurch during Cup & Show week for the biggest stand-off between Man and Beast ever staged in New Zealand.

Tickets are on sale at Ticketek from 1 June and spectators are urged to hurry as they aren’t expected to last long.
