WrestleMania 37 confirmed for Los Angeles' SoFi stadium
WWE have confirmed - following months of heavy speculation - that 2021's WrestleMania will be hosted in Los Angeles.
The city's mayor Eric Garcetti, alongside his Inglewood counterpart James T. Butts Jr., this morning announced that the unofficially titled WrestleMania 37 will emanate from SoFi Stadium on Sunday, 28 March.
The brand new $5 billion venue had been openly courting a big event as preparation for hosting the SuperBowl in 2022, with WWE's biggest show of the year touted as a potential candidate.
“Many people are more excited about us hosting WrestleMania than the Olympics," Butts told the assembled press. He went on: "WrestleMania brings excitement and is followed by almost every age demographic. With the scheduling of this marquee event, we can say without contradiction, the only thing that has changed in Inglewood is… everything."
Although precise details on the exact configuration are obviously not confirmed, SoFi Stadium's 70,240 base capacity can be expanded to 100,240 for an event of this type. Come next March, we can reasonably expect WWE to announce a record attendance eclipsing the disputed 101,763 figure set in Arlington's AT&T Stadium for WrestleMania 32.
In addition to the announcement, WWE dropped a logo for the forthcoming event, an aureate effort which pretends it is taking place in Hollywood. It's rather splendid.
