In 2007, PBR made its debut in New York City, New York, bringing the "most dangerous sport on dirt" to Madison Square Gardens.

It is the first event of the PBR Unleash the Beast Serieswhich goes until the beginning of November. At that time the top 35 bull riders in the world compete for the year long world title as well as the event championship title.

The Madison Square Gardens event is considered a “PBR Major” The prize money is a staggering $100,000 to the event winner and 625 points towards the world finals points, both larger than a regular PBR UTB (Unleash the Beast) event.

According to PBR.com , over $1.2 million has been awarded at this event in New York City in the last decade.
