WrestleMania 37 will be held at the new SoFi Stadium at Hollywood Park in Los Angeles on March 28, 2021. The formal announcement was made by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. and the WWE.
Los Angeles has hosted WrestleMania three times previously; 2005 at the Staples Center, and at the Los Angeles Sports Arena in 1991 and 1986. It twice has been in nearby Anaheim, in 1996 and 2000 at the Honda Center.
“The city of Inglewood is thrilled to say that WrestleMania will add to the growing number of national and internationally followed events that will be hosted in our city over the next eight years,” Butts said. “WrestleMania brings excitement and is followed by almost every age demographic. With the scheduling of this marquee event, we can say without contradiction, the only thing that has changed in Inglewood is … everything.”
Over the past 13 years, WrestleMania has generated more than $1.3 billion in estimated economic impact for host cities. WrestleMania 36 takes place April 5 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
“There is nothing quite like WrestleMania Week,” 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.”
In addition to WrestleMania 37, other events include Friday Night SmackDown, NXT TakeOver and Monday Night Raw at Staples Center and the WWE’s fan festival at the Los Angeles Convention Center. WWE will also host more than a dozen community outreach events, including hospital visits and bullying prevention rallies.
“WrestleMania is one of the world’s most-watched events, and we are proud to welcome WWE to the Inglewood community,” said Jason Gannon, SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park managing director. “WWE’s commitment to community is consistent with our mission to provide a lasting positive impact in the community. We look forward to making a difference with WWE.”
