Integrated media and wrestling entertainment company WWE has announced record first-day ticket sales for WrestleMania 39.
The event is set to take place at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles in 2023 and over 90,000 tickets were sold within the first 24 hours. This is more than any event in WWE history, and is a 42% increase over first-day sales for WrestleMania 38 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.
WWE executive vice-president Paul Levesque revealed the record-breaking figures on the entertainment company’s Q2 2022 earnings call.
Levesque also revealed that WWE had produced its most successful second quarter in history, and had set records for revenue and adjusted OIBDA (Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortisation).
He said: “In nearly 40 years, we have never sold that many WrestleMania tickets that fast. With those record numbers, we are tracking toward sell-outs with passionate fans at SoFi Stadium for both nights.”
WrestleMain 39 will take place on April 1 and April 2 next year and will also be streamed through Peacock in the US and WWE Network worldwide.
There are a limited number of single and two-day combo tickets for next year’s WrestleMania available through Ticketmaster.
