One of the crown jewels of the PBA season, the PBA Tournament of Champions, will happen in Jupiter, Florida, with the finals broadcast on Feb. 28.

The World Series of Bowling, which will award five PBA Tour titles including the PBA World Championship, will take place in Tampa, Florida, with shows airing from March 13-17.

In addition to the major title, players will battle for titles in the Mark Roth-Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship, PBA Cheetah Championship, PBA Chameleon Championship and PBA Scorpion Championship.

The details around the final two majors of the season, the USBC Masters and U.S. Open, were previously announced by USBC. Those events will take place during a two-week period starting March 29 at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nevada.

All qualifying and match play rounds for the events mentioned above will be broadcast live on FloBowling.

All of the champions from the major events will then take part in the PBA Super Slam event on April 18 in Annadale, Virginia. The PBA said it was a “$100K special event.”

Additionally, the PBA will wrap up the PBA Jr. National Championship, which held qualifying last year, with the finals to be broadcast March 7. In addition to the title matches, the youth players will be partnered with PBA stars for a competition during the show.

Additional details on PBA Tour events, tournament formats, host bowling centers, and more post-April will be announced at a later date, the PBA said in a release.

Here's a look at the national broadcast schedule. All of the events listed below will also be broadcast on FloBowling for international subscribers:
