How Many WWE Fans Are Expected In Las Vegas For WrestleMania 41 Revealed WWE

A new statement out of Las Vegas has revealed how many WWE fans are expected in town for WrestleMania 41 next year.

WrestleMania 41 takes place at Allegiant Stadium on April 19 and 20, 2025.

This means it falls on Easter weekend, seemingly a strategic decision on behalf of Vegas to counteract what is usually a quiet time period for the area.

In a statement released via KLAS 8 News Now, Lisa Motley – vice president of sports and special events for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority – stated:

“The dates of the event will occur over Easter weekend, which is a typically slow time for Las Vegas.

“We anticipate more than 180,000 WrestleMania fans will occupy 144,000 incremental room nights over that time period.”

The article also stated:

On Tuesday, the LVCVA approved $5 million for WWE to sponsor the event, which is expected to bring a massive influx of traffic to the Las Vegas Strip at a perennially slow time for the city.

Another noteworthy inclusion was confirmation that the episodes of SmackDown and Raw surrounding WrestleMania itself will also emanate from Vegas:

Motley also confirmed that WWE would be continuing its trend of running multiple televised shows in the city that hosts WrestleMania with Raw, which will then be broadcast on Netflix, and SmackDown on cable channel USA, expected to emanate from the entertainment capital of the world. Motley said those events would take place “at an MGM Resorts venue.”

While things can change between now and then, WWE is currently planning for The Rock vs Cody Rhodes to take place at WrestleMania 41.
