WrestleMania 28 Breaks Sun Life Stadium Attendance Record

Tue, April 3, 2012 11:07am EST by 6 Comments

During WrestleMania 28 in Miami on April 1 a sellout crowd of 78,363 fans from all 50 states and 36 countries joined the rest of the WWE Universe on PPV to witness the “Once In A Lifetime” epic battle between The Rock and John Cena!

Sun Life Stadium’s largest attended sellout crowd has been shattered with the WWE’s latest WrestleMania and is now the highest grossing entertainment event in the history of the Miami stadium. Grossing $8.9 million, it was also the highest grossing live event in WWE history. The event was broadcast around the world on pay-per-view in more than 105 countries and 20 languages. And it was one the most epic events in entertainment.

So HollywoodLifers, to put this in perspective, the previous attendance record was 77,912 for the BCS National Championship in 2005. Its highest grossing entertainment event was U2 on June 29, 2011, grossing more than $7.5 million. WrestleMania XXVIII surpassed the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania in Houston, which grossed $7.2 million. This marks the third consecutive year WrestleMania broke the gross entertainment event record of the host venue.

“WrestleMania XXVIII in Miami-Dade County was an incredible event for WWE. WWE would like to thank our loyal fans, as well as the public and private sector partners for their tireless efforts to help make WrestleMania Week such a success,” said John P. Saboor, Senior Vice President of Special Events, WWE. “We now look forward to building on these achievements as we head to MetLife Stadium for WrestleMania XXIX next year.”

And we would have to agree, we can’t wait for WrestleMania 29!

WrestleMania XXIX will take place on Sunday, April 7, 2013 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Ticket information will be announced later this year.
