As we are just about to embark on the road to WrestleMania 31 this Sunday with the Royal Rumble, WWE has announced the host venue for next year’s pop-culture extravaganza.
WWE WrestleMania 32 will be held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas home of the Dallas Cowboys football team on April 3rd, 2016.
Chairman and CEO of WWE, Vince McMahon, along with John Cena, Hulk Hogan and host of other WWE superstars were on hand to unveil the home of the Cowboys for the 32nd edition of WrestleMania along with important figures from the team and the city.

AT&T stadium can hold over 100,000 fans which could mean WWE might break their WrestleMania attendance record, a record of 93,173, set by WrestleMania 3 from the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan.
In addition to this, WrestleMania has become a week long event with fan access events, the Hall of Fame ceremony and their weekly live flagship show, Monday Night Raw. Therefore, fans will be staying for more than one night, and will be travelling from across the globe for the annual event.
Last year, WrestleMania 30 emanated from New Orleans, Louisiana and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome which generated more than $142 million in economic impact for the New Orleans region.
“WWE thanks the city of Arlington, city of Dallas and the Dallas Cowboys for their tireless efforts to bring WrestleMania to AT&T Stadium,” Vince McMahon said. “We look forward to making history at WrestleMania, while adding AT&T Stadium to the list of iconic venues that have hosted our annual pop-culture extravaganza.”
This will be the third time Texas has been a host state for WWE’s biggest event, after previously hosting the 17th annual event and the 25th anniversary edition.
WrestleMania 31 takes place Sunday, March 29th at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
