WWE are reportedly hoping to have 45,000 fans in attendance for each night of WrestleMania 37 next month.
WrestleMania 37 will be the first time in over a year that WWE have been able to welcome fans to one of their events, with the outdoor Raymond James Stadium the perfect venue for such an occasion, having hosted the NFL Super Bowl a few weeks ago.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that, initially, WWE had hoped to welcome 30,000 fans on both night one and night two of WrestleMania 37, but the goal is to now have 45,000 members of the WWE Universe at Raymond James Stadium on both Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 April.
Meltzer says that the city of Tampa held a meeting with local hotels earlier this week, in which they were told that WWE is pushing to have a 75 per cent attendance for both nights of WrestleMania 37. The capacity for WrestleMania 37, with the stage, would have been 60,000, which means a 75 per cent attendance would take that number to 45,000.
WWE confirmed earlier this week that tickets for WrestleMania 37 will go on sale on Tuesday 16 March, with prices ranging from $35 to $2,500 per night.
