Minneapolis is actively pursuing the opportunity to host WWE WrestleMania 41 next year.

Background: Speculation about Minneapolis, Minnesota hosting the prestigious event has circulated since 2015, including considerations for WrestleMania 33 in 2017, although ultimately Orlando, Florida was chosen as the host city.

The preferred venue for hosting the event in Minneapolis is believed to be the U.S. Bank Stadium, home to the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. With its indoor setup and a capacity of up to 73,000 seats for events, the stadium offers an ideal setting for WrestleMania.

Bid Submission: According to reports from the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Minnesota Sports and Events (MNSE) has officially submitted its proposal to host WrestleMania 41 at the U.S. Bank Stadium. Wendy Blackshaw, the president and CEO of MNSE, described the bidding process as “highly competitive”.

Current WrestleMania: As the anticipation for WrestleMania 41 builds, WWE is gearing up for WrestleMania 40, scheduled for Saturday, April 6, and Sunday, April 7, 2024. This year’s event will take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with exclusive coverage available on Peacock. The headline matches include The Rock & Roman Reigns facing off against Cody Rhodes & Seth Rollins on night 1, and Reigns defending his Undisputed WWE Universal Title against Rhodes on the second night.
