WWE officials are looking to have 45,000 fans at Raymond James Stadium for each night of WrestleMania 37.
A few months ago the hope was to put 30,000 fans inside Raymond James Stadium, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, but at a meeting held this past week a new goal of 45,000 fans each night was set.
The city of Tampa held a meeting on Wednesday, March 10 with representatives from local hotels and they were told that WWE is pushing to run Raymond James Stadium at 75% capacity on both nights of WrestleMania, Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11. The capacity for a WrestleMania with the stage would have been 60,000, which is where the 45,000 figure comes from.
WWE usually exaggerates the announced attendance number for WrestleMania events, so it’s possible that they go with a number between 70,000 and 75,000, but it will depend on what is best for public relations. They may not exaggerate the number as high as they usually do because of the COVID-19 pandemic and how that would look.
WrestleMania 37 tickets will go on sale this coming Tuesday.
Fans will be limited to purchasing 8 tickets for WrestleMania 37 Night 1 and Night 2 when tickets go on sale next Tuesday at 10am ET via Ticketmaster.
The Ticketmaster website notes that there is an overall limit of 8 tickets for the individual Night 1 and Night 2 events, and the same limit goes for the combo tickets that include admission to both nights.
Ticketmaster has also revealed the start time for WrestleMania 37. The doors to Raymond James Stadium are scheduled to open at 4:30pm and the start time is listed as 6:30pm as of this writing.
The listed start time could be for the main card. The WrestleMania 36 Kickoff pre-show started at 6pm on both nights last year, while the main card began at 7pm. WWE will likely clarify the start times in a few weeks once the card is updated.
The combo and single tickets will range from $35 – $2,500, which is the same prices as last year. Fans can sign-up to be notified about the ticket pre-sale via this link.
WWE is now using “Back In Business” as a tagline for WrestleMania 37. It was noted that additional WrestleMania 37 Week events will be announced soon. WWE will also be announcing details on COVID-19 safety protocols in the coming weeks.
WrestleMania 37 takes place on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11, from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
