More than 90,000 tickets sold so far to the two-day event at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia in April 2024.
WrestleMania 40 is scheduled for a two-night event on April 6 and April 7 and it will be live from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets for WrestleMania 40 became available for purchase on Friday, August 18. A total of more than 90,000 tickets have been sold for the event in just a few hours.
WrestleMania 40 is advertising stars such as Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Brock Lesnar, Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair, Asuka, and Becky Lynch on WWE’s official WrestleMania 40 poster.
This continues the trend of WWE’s Premium Live Events bettering the revenue from the previous events. Earlier this year, SummerSlam became the highest grossing non-WrestleMania event from WWE, after Royal Rumble, Backlash, Night of Champions and Money in the Bank broke the revenue records in their event series.
