WWE plans to have fans in attendance at Raymond James Stadium for WrestleMania 37 this April, Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon told TMZ. In the interview, she also confirms WrestleMania will once again be a two-night event.
“I’m thrilled and excited because, hopefully, this will be the first opportunity for us to have our fans back in attendance,” Stephanie said. “That’s the current plan. Of course, ticket information is not available yet cause we’re still trying to figure out all the machinations.”
She went on to say that WWE will take cues from the NFL, and its upcoming Super Bowl, in terms of how to handle the admission of fans into the football stadium. “We’re going to learn a lot from [the NFL] logistically, etc., and really best practices, what works, what doesn’t work. But man, we can’t wait to come in and for two nights, really rock that pirate ship.”
WWE announced last weekend that WrestleMania 37 would be emanating from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, instead of the original location of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. This is likely due to the more lax restrictions on public gatherings in Florida. SoFi stadium is instead earmarked to host WrestleMania 39 in 2023.
Raymond James Stadium was originally slated to host WrestleMania 36 last year, until the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States.
