The Cal Poly Rodeo Team and Poly Royal Rodeo would not be possible without the program’s valued sponsors, and we would like to extend our appreciation to our past donors. The 77th, 78th and 79th annual Poly Royal Rodeos made history with the move to Spanos Stadium and sold-out performances to crowds with over 12,000 fans.

Below you will find information on our new Partnership Program and the upcoming 2020 Poly Royal Rodeo. Poly Royal Rodeo has made many advancements in the past years and with your help, can make this year even bigger and better. Please note that the deadline is March 13, 2020!





Any sponsorships (and benefits) received after April 1, 2020 will be counted toward the 81st Poly Royal Rodeo.
