WWE goes Hollywood with WrestleMania 37 in 2021 to be held at new SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles

WWE is beating the Super Bowl to the punch.

WrestleMania 37 will be hosted at Los Angeles’ brand-new SoFi Stadium, the company announced on Tuesday, and be held on Sunday March 28 (Monday March 29 Australian time) in 2021.

The new state-of-the-art stadium in Inglewood, California is being built to home the city’s two NFL teams, the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers, and will host the 2022 Super Bowl.

While WWE often likes to host WrestleManias at Super Bowl venues – both for their size and to beat their attendance record – this time the wrestling extravaganza will be held before the NFL one.

As is par for the course these days, WrestleMania will take over the city for an entire week, with Friday Night Smackdown, NXT TakeOver, the Hall of Fame ceremony and Monday Night Raw all to be held in Los Angeles as well.

This will be the first WrestleMania in LA since WrestleMania 21.

“There is nothing quite like WrestleMania Week,” Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti said.

“It is a one-of-a-kind event that provides an economic boost to the region — and fans from around the world will find a city that is ready to host them and welcomes the spectacle.”

This year’s WrestleMania, the 36th edition of the mega-event, will be held at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium on April 5 (April 6 Australian time).

“On behalf of everyone at WWE, we are excited to bring WrestleMania back to Los Angeles,” WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon said.

“WrestleMania will set the bar for future sports and entertainment events held at SoFi Stadium as we add this facility to the list of iconic venues that have hosted our pop-culture extravaganza.”
