The Arizona Republic reports that next year’s Royal Rumble event will be held in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field on Sunday, January 27th.

The stadium is able to hold 48,519 people for a baseball event. This is the first time WWE pay-per-view event held in a Major League Baseball stadium since 2003’s WrestleMania XIX, which was held in Seattle’s Safeco Field.

The weekend will also include NXT Takeover and post-Rumble editions of RAW & SmackDown. Those events will be held at the nearby Talking Stick Resort Arena.
