It'll be a few months before bucking bulls come to Austin's Moody Center, but the city's new professional bull riding team still put on a show with its first-ever event at Republic Square on Thursday.

As the newest addition to the Professional Bull Riding league, the Austin Gamblers welcomed its new home with PBR legends, including Gamblers' head coach Michael Gaffney, PBR 2020-21 World Champion Jose Vitor Leme, 2019 Rookie of the Year Dalton Kasel and 2016 World Champ Cooper Davis.

The Gamblers announced its upcoming schedule—and new part-owner Michael Dell—along with live and mechanical bulls, live music, food trucks and more at the downtown Austin event.

Austin's newest pro team will join the new PBR Team Circuit with 10 tournament-style events across the country before hosting the Moody Center's first sporting event August 26-28.
