WWE released ticket information for WrestleMania 37 during Monday Night Raw this week, which will be the first WWE main roster show in over a year to have paying fans in attendance.
WWE didn’t announce how many tickets are going to be going on sale for the show, but Dave Meltzer is reporting in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE is hoping to have 45,000 fans in attendance for both nights of WrestleMania:
A few months ago the hope was to put 30,000 in the stadium but based on a meeting this past week it looks like the goal now is 45,000 each night.
On 3/10, the city of Tampa had a meeting with some local hotels and the hotels were told that WWE is pushing to run Raymond James Stadium on 4/10 and 4/11 at 75 percent capacity. The capacity for a WrestleMania with the stage would have been 60,000, which is where 45,000 comes from. Based on WWE’s usual exaggerations, one would have expected an announced number between 70,000 and 75,000, and depending on what they deem is best for P.R., they could announce a number significantly larger than 45,000 but that was what they were requesting.
