WrestleMania 33 is still more than four months away, but fans can already start buying tickets for the event. WWE’s biggest show of the year takes place on April 2, 2017 at Camping Bowl Stadium, also known as the Citrus Bowl, in Orlando, Florida.
All tickets to WrestleMania 33 officially go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. EST, but some seats were made available for purchase earlier. Tickets can be bought at ticketmaster.com by entering the pre-sale code “DOTCOM.” The pre-sale ends at 11 p.m. EST on Thursday.
Tickets can be purchased for as low as $38 and as much as $1,065. Seats within the first 10 rows of ringside cost $2,130, and they are included in the limited number of “Gold Circle” VIP Packages that will be sold. The package includes access to a special stadium entrance and a commemorative WrestleMania 33 folding chair.
It was just eight years ago that the Citrus Bowl hosted WrestleMania 24 when just under 75,000 fans were in attendance to watch WWE’s biggest event of 2008. The Undertaker defeated Edge in the main event, and Ric Flair was defeated by Shawn Michaels in The Nature Boys’ final WWE match.
No matter how many people attend WrestleMania 33, it won’t come close to matching WWE’s top pay-per-view of 2016. A record crowd of 101,763 fans were in attendance for WrestleMania 32 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on April 3. It was the highest-grossing and best-attended event in WWE history.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams announced on Wednesday that WrestleMania 32 generated $170.4 million in economic impact for the Dallas/Arlington region. It’s the fifth straight year that WrestleMania helped generate more than $100 million for the host region.
“On behalf of our city, we would like to thank all of the domestic and international WWE fans that converged on Dallas for WrestleMania Week to enjoy all that North Texas has to offer,” said Rawlings. “The week-long series of events brought a tremendous economic windfall to our region.”
WrestleMania has become so big that it’s more than just a one-day event. Prior to the PPV on Sunday, WWE hosts various events, including meet-and-greets with WWE superstars and Make-A-Wish events.
NXT TakeOver will take place at Orlando’s Amway Center during the week of WrestleMania 33, as will “Monday Night Raw” and “SmackDown Live” on the nights following the PPV.
