WWE announced that WrestleMania 33 became the highest-grossing event in the history of Camping World Stadium and broke the stadium’s attendance record with 75,245 fans from all 50 states and 62 countries.
WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza grossed $14.5 million, surpassing the previous record set by the Rolling Stones in 2015. The previous Camping World Stadium attendance record was set by WrestleMania 24 in 2008 with 74,635 fans.
As part of the week-long WrestleMania celebration, WWE will have an unprecedented five consecutive nights of sellouts at Camping World Stadium and Amway Center.
“WrestleMania Week was a tremendous success for the City of Orlando and it was an honor to host WWE and their fans back in our community," said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “This is a testament to the investments we’ve made in our community venues that continue to attract these showcase events and solidify Orlando as the nation's leading sports and entertainment destination.”
Never miss a local story.
WWE Executive Vice President of Special Events John Saboor added: “WrestleMania made a triumphant return to Orlando and again broke multiple records. This success would not have been possible without the tireless support of Mayor Dyer, the Local Organizing Committee and all of the public and private sector partners throughout Central Florida. We now turn our attention to New Orleans for our WrestleMania 34 celebration.”
WrestleMania 34 will occur on Sunday, April 8, 2018 from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Ticket information will be announced later this year.
