AEW To Run 23,000-Seat Stadium In New York City Later This Year
AEW is heading to Queens
All Elite Wrestling will head to New York City later this year.
Tony Khan announced on WFAN Sports Radio today that AEW will hold Dynamite: Grand Slam at the USTA Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday, September 22. Tickets for the event go on sale on July 16.
"It's one of the most iconic sporting venues. Every seat is a great seat. It's going to be a tremendous crowd and very accessible. In terms of seating and capacity, I couldn't find a better venue. It's never hosted a wrestling event. It's non-traditional, but I think a tennis stadium sets up beautifully and this happens to be the greatest tennis stadium in the greatest city. Hopefully, it starts a great tradition for AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam," Khan said.
The USTA Arthur Ashe Stadium is a 23,000-seat tennis stadium in Queens, New York City. It is the largest tennis stadium in the world and is the main venue for the US Open.
This is just the latest announcement AEW has made as the promotion prepares to resume touring from July 7.
