WWE has revealed that Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will host WrestleMania 41.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 19th and Sunday April 20th. It will mark the latest point in the calendar that WrestleMania has ever taken place.

The announcement came during NBC’s coverage of the Kentucky Derby.

The reveal came unusually late. In recent years, the host city, dates and venue for the following year’s WrestleMania have been known before the current year’s event takes place.

For example, Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia was revealed as the venue for WrestleMania XL in July 2022, 21 months before the event.

Minneapolis had been openly talked about as a front-runner for next year’s WrestleMania, including in public remarks by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz.

In March, the Star Tribune reported that the non-profit organization Minnesota Sports and Events had submitted its pitch to host the event.

WWE has existing ties to Las Vegas. Allegiant Stadium hosted SummerSlam 2021.

WWE’s partner in TKO Holdings, the UFC, is headquartered in Las Vegas and the UFC Apex venue in the city has been announced for June’s NXT Battleground PLE.

Additionally, WWE President and TKO Board member Nick Khan is from the city.

Per the WWE press release:

STAMFORD, Conn., May 4, 2024 – WWE®, part of TKO Group Holdings (NYSE: TKO), in conjunction with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, today announced that Las Vegas will host WrestleMania 41 at Allegiant Stadium on Saturday, April 19 and Sunday, April 20, 2025.  

“Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world. Allegiant Stadium has proven to be even greater than the A+ venue Las Vegas guaranteed it would be,” said Nick Khan, WWE President. “We look forward to bringing WWE’s biggest event, WrestleMania, to Las Vegas and Allegiant Stadium so we can collectively make WrestleMania 41 on April 19 & 20, 2025, the most successful WWE event of all time.” 

“Bringing the iconic global brands of WWE and Las Vegas together will create what is sure to be an unforgettable event and weekend,” said Steve Hill, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority President & CEO. “As the Sports and Entertainment Capital of the World, hosting WrestleMania 41 is the perfect addition to our events calendar, and we can’t wait to welcome the WWE Universe to Las Vegas in 2025.”   

Over the last four decades, WrestleMania has evolved from a made-for-television spectacle to a cultural phenomenon complete with stadium and arena events, fan festivities and premium experiences. In addition to the two-night stadium event, WWE will bring Raw, SmackDown, NXT Stand & Deliver, WWE World and the 2025 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony to Las Vegas, as well as a variety of community outreach events designed to give back to the local region. 

This past April, WrestleMania XL became the most-successful and highest-grossing event in company history, breaking the previous gate record set by WrestleMania 39 by 78 percent, with 145,298 in attendance over two nights at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. WrestleMania delivers more than $200 million in economic impact for host cities.
