WrestleMania 41 announced for Las Vegas next year

Today WWE announced that WrestleMania 41 will be coming to Las Vegas, Nevada and will be held at the state-of-the-art Allegiant Stadium.

WrestleMania Saturday will take place on April 19 and WrestleMania Sunday will follow on April 20.

The announcement was made during the Kentucky Derby pre-show on NBC via a video by Triple H.

“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.”

This is the first time in 31 years that Las Vegas will host WrestleMania, with WrestleMania IX back in 1993 the last time the Showcase of Immortals was in Sin City in the parking lot of Caesars Palace.

The nearby T-Mobile Arena is expected to be hosting Smackdown and Hall of Fame, NXT, and Raw After Mania. It will be WWE’s debut at the T-Mobile Arena and the first wrestling shows to be held there since the AEW Double or Nothing 2023 pay-per-view. WWE did not officially announce where these shows will be held.

Additional ticket details and event information will be announced in the coming months. To learn more about registering for pre-sale opportunities, please visit: https://www.wwe.com/wm41-presale-registration.

The Allegiant Stadium already hosted SummerSlam 2021 where over 50,000 fans attended. WrestleMania attendance will obviously be more than that as not the full stadium was open for SummerSlam whereas for WrestleMania, every imaginable seat will be open.

The announcement today ends Minneapolis’ bid to host next year’s show after being in pole position for most of the time until Vegas decided to spoil the party. This was the third time that the city of Minneapolis tried to get WrestleMania to the North Star State.
