WWE announced last night the final date of its thirty-seventh edition of WrestleMania, which will be composed of two shows that will be held over two nights. Additionally, WWE announced the date of its next two editions, as well as the corporate image of each of them. However, for the 37th edition, many people have wondered if fans will be able to enter Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
Dave Meltzer a journalist for Wrestling Observer, gave more information on this matter on his last radio show where he confirmed that there will be an audience at WrestleMania 37. According to Meltzer, it is very likely that WWE will be able to sell around 14,000 tickets, a regular figure that the NFL team Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been selling in recent home games.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been selling about 14,000 tickets at Raymond James Stadium for home games. You know, obviously, as we all know Ron DeSantis, the Florida governor, bought the tickets essentially. So they can do whatever they want. I suppose this will be the most important of the first program of WWE with fans declared.
WWE’s goal is to sell as many tickets as possible. The stadium has an approximate capacity of 65,000 spectators, but only WWE will be able to sell a part of the total capacity due to the measures against COVID-19. At the moment, the company has not opened the virtual box office, but it is rumored that it will soon.
Linda McMahon donated a total of $ 18.5 million to the State of Florida one day before WWE was declared an essential business. It is said that this maneuver will make it easier for WWE to seat spectators in the seats of the Raymond James.
