INFR Cancels 2020 Championship Event Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Browning, MT – August 05, 2020 – The Indian National Finals Rodeo (INFR) Board of Commissioners, announced today that they made the very tough decision to cancel the 45th Annual INFR due to the continued growing concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 45th annual INFR was initially scheduled for October 20 – 24, 2020, at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The cancellation of the 45th showing of the INFR follows the rise in confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the United States, recent announcements of region concerns, including the initiated travel bans in Canada, which may affect the Canadian regions.

INFR General Manager Donna Hoyt explained that the decision was made after meeting with the South Point Hotel and other interested parties.
Hoyt said, “This was a tough decision by the board, but the health and welfare is our priority. It was necessary to keep our members, families, elders, fans, vendors, sponsors, contractors, and any other person involved with holding a successful INFR safe.

She added, “We are excited to see everyone at the South Point Hotel and Casino Equestrian Event Center in 2021 as we can safely come together again and crown our next world champions.”

“Our prayers go out to those who have been affected by this pandemic in our rodeo family and throughout Indian country. Our hats off to all of those who have worked diligently in the front lines, working to help lessen the curve and save lives.” Hoyt concluded.

The INFR will provide more information to the members regarding memberships purchased for 2020.
