WWE issued a press release today announcing that the company will be traveling to Egypt for three nights, starting October 18, for shows at the Cairo Stadium Complex in Cairo. Egypt is the sixth new country that the WWE has traveled to in 2012.
WWE will be working with Egyptian live events promoter, Creative Design, to bring WWE World Tour to local fans. Creative Design previously brought WWE to Doha, Qatar last year.
“WWE is one of the largest names in family entertainment, and it’s a great honor to hold such an enormous event in a wonderful country like Egypt,” said Assem Al Sheikh, Chairman of Creative Design.
“We’re thrilled to announce this three-day, live event tour in Egypt,” said Ed Wells, Managing Director and Senior Vice President of WWE International. “These shows in Cairo are further testament to the strength and popularity of the WWE brand throughout the MENA region and build on our efforts to expand our business internationally.”
Tickets for the three shows – on October 18, 19, and 20 – will go on sale on September 8 at Ticketsmarche.com or by calling the hotline +2 01008425387.
