WWE’s Wrestlemania sets all-time attendance record

2022’s Wrestlemania 38 at AT&T Stadium in Texas produced the highest-grossing and most-attended event in the WWE’s 37-year history.

Some 156,352 attended the event at Dallas Cowboys’ home over the course of two nights, surpassing the previous gate and attendance records set by WrestleMania 32 in 2016. Organisers said fans attended from all 50 US states as well as 53 countries worldwide.

Tickets went on sale via AT&T Stadium partner SeatGeek last November, with single night and two-night packages available.

“We are thrilled that WrestleMania’s return to Dallas again generated record results, proving that everything is indeed bigger in Texas,” said John Saboor, WWE’s executive vice-president of special events.

“We are grateful to the Jones Family and the entire Dallas Cowboys Organisation, the Dallas Sports Commission, the city of Arlington, the city of Dallas and all the public and private sector partners who were instrumental in making WrestleMania 38 the most stupendous two-night WrestleMania in history.”

SeatGeek signed a deal in 2018 by which it tickets all events at AT&T Stadium, as well as events at Ford Center, a 12,000-seat facility located at The Star, the Cowboys’ complex in Frisco, Texas. When announcing ticket details last November, SeatGeek said Wrestlemania tickets can be found for as low as $89.00, with an average price of $308.00.

The 2020 event took place behind closed doors due to the pandemic, while around 50,000 attended last year’s WrestleMania in Tampa, Florida due to capacity restrictions.
