A press conference is scheduled to take place in Tampa on Thursday to announce that WrestleMania will be held at Raymond James Stadium on April 5, 2020.
Tampa was one of the heavy favorites to get the event after city officials said last year that they would be putting in a serious bid to get WWE into their city. Minnesota was also in the running and they have been trying to get WrestleMania for years. WWE execs were invited to Vikings game a few months ago.
This would be the first time that Tampa will host a WrestleMania and the city is hoping the event will do what it has done for other cities. WrestleMania has been estimated to generate between $150 to $175 million for host cities.
