NE Mississippi Championship Rodeo TicketsThe NE Mississippi Championship features top-notch rodeo thrills, as competitors travel from around the United States, particularly Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. All the familiar rodeo events such as calf roping, bulldogging, team roping, trick riding and bull riding will enthrall you from the first fast riders presenting the national flag on a race around the arena to the ending presentation of trophies and awards. Contestants deliver their best performances because they know that qualifying in regional events makes them eligible for national competition such as the action-packed Las Vegas National Finals Rodeo at the Thomas and Mack Center. Mississippi is known for its exciting rodeo scene, and if you follow cowboys such as Josh Frost as they trot around the globe, then you'll see why entire families make rodeo their careers in this high-paying profession. And there is no other sport where you'll find an 89-year-old clown distracting a raging bull. If you're a beginner, attending this championship at the BancorpSouth Arena will whet your appetite for the sport. If you're a veteran, it will quench your thirst for nonstop action.
