Crews Set Up PBR Arena

EUGENE, Ore. — Matthew Knight Arena will undergo a transformation for Saturday night’s PBR rodeo.

Setup for the show begins bright and early Saturday morning. But changing a basketball court into a bull riding arena isn’t an easy task. In fact, it takes all day.

“Sunday morning at 8 a.m., the girls are going to be coming in here and wanting to shoot around again. So we’ve got to immediately start tearing everything down and start loading dirt out. And, to me, that’s as entertaining as watching the bull riding,” said announcer Matt West.

It takes about 24 hours and 25 dump trucks full of dirt to make the change.
