The American Rodeo at AT&T Stadium
EVI partners with Teton Ridge to produce “The American”
Known worldwide as the Crown Jewel of rodeo and the Super Bowl of Western Sports, “The American” is a legendary event held annually at the iconic AT&T stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.
The event brings together top professional athletes competing in the richest single day payout in all of rodeo. A true open-competition format, The American is the only major sporting event that gives amateur athletes a chance to compete against the sport’s greatest names.
Having recently acquired the event as the centerpiece of their western sports portfolio, Teton Ridge sought out the experiential and producing expertise of Executive Visions to help launch their "all new" brand and bring the 2022 American Rodeo experience to an unprecedented level. Within a highly compressed timeframe, an elite team of creative and technical professionals brought the project to realization under the visionary direction of Teton Ridge President, Emily Castel.
The event was enjoyed by 50,000 fans inside the stadium and by a nationwide audience via live broadcast on The Cowboy Channel and INSP network. Noted sports director Joe Loverro produced and directed the broadcast.
