A recent statement from Las Vegas has provided an estimate of the number of WWE fans anticipated in the city for WrestleMania 41 next year.

The event is set to take place at Allegiant Stadium on April 19 and 20, 2025, coinciding with Easter weekend. This scheduling appears to be a strategic move to boost activity during a typically quiet period for Las Vegas.

Lisa Motley, vice president of sports and special events for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), shared the following statement via KLAS 8 News Now:

“The dates of the event will occur over Easter weekend, which is a typically slow time for Las Vegas. We anticipate more than 180,000 WrestleMania fans will occupy 144,000 incremental room nights over that time period.”


Additionally, the LVCVA has approved a $5 million sponsorship for WWE to host the event, which is expected to bring significant traffic to the Las Vegas Strip during a normally slow time for the city.

It was also confirmed that WWE will continue its tradition of holding multiple televised shows in the host city. Episodes of SmackDown and Raw surrounding WrestleMania 41 will emanate from Las Vegas. SmackDown will air on cable channel USA, and Raw will be broadcast on Netflix. These events are scheduled to take place at an MGM Resorts venue.

While plans could change, WWE is currently aiming for a marquee match between The Rock and Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 41.

With WrestleMania 41 expected to draw over 180,000 fans to Las Vegas, how do you think the event will impact the city’s typically slow Easter weekend?
