International Finals Rodeo Information
The International Finals Rodeo is the famous post-season event by the International Pro Rodeo Association, founded in 1957 by two rodeo promoters. The IRA (Interstate Rodeo Association) was formed as a sanctioning body and rodeo management organization for IPRA in 1957. IPRA revolutionized the sport of rodeo in 1964 after creating a Board of Governors. The association became the first rodeo association to recognize cowgirl’s barrel racing as a world championship event in 1961.
Planning for the first International Finals Rodeo began in 1968. The first post-season event took place in February 1971 with a total payoff of $47,000. The event was held at the Tulsa Assembly Center as the Finals for the 1970 season, sponsored by the local Jaycees. IFR kept Tulsa as its home venue until the 1973 season. Later, it relocated to the Tingley Coliseum, located in Albuquerque.
In 1975, IFR returned to its previous home venue, Tulsa, and remained there until 1990. The same year, IFR celebrated its 20th anniversary. In 1991, IPRA signed a multi-year agreement with the Oklahoma City All Sports Association and moved IFR to the Myriad Convention Center.
