Philadelphia submits bid to host WrestleMania 34 in 2018

 

CrossingBroad.com, a Philly based sports blog is reporting that Philadelphia has submitted a bid to host WrestleMania 34 in 2018.

Philly was in play to bid for the 2015 or 2016 WrestleMania events however Philadelphia Sports Congress Executive Director Larry Needle later cited the unavailability of venues needed for the other events as a reason why no official bids were made.

Now the news is that Philadelphia has submitted a formal bid for the 2018 WrestleMania event with the big event to be hosted at the Lincoln Financial Field, Raw and NXT would be at the Wells Fargo Center, and Axxess at the Convention Center.

The Lincoln Financial Field is the home of the Philadelphia Eagles and sits just under 70,000 in a football setting.

CrossingBroad.com reached out to The Philadelphia Sports Congress but they declined to comment on the story.
