WrestleMania 31 sets gate record, attendance record for Levi’s Stadium

March 30, 2015

The WWE announced an attendance and gate record for Wrestlemania 31 from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.  In a press release it indicated that it grossed $12.6 million with an attendance of 76,976.

It was the 5th highest attendance figure in Wrestlemania history.  It also set a mark for attendance at Levi’s Stadium (previously 70,799 for the first regular season game for the San Francisco 49ers).  Wrestlemania 29 at MetLife Stadium in 2013 had the previous record for highest gross with $12.3 million.

For the Bay Area, Wrestlemania served as preparation for Levi’s Stadium to host Super Bowl 50 next February.

Payout Perspective:

The company’s annual event proved once again why cities vie to host WrestleMania each year.  All of the events during the weekend surrounding Sunday’s show also provided a great influx of revenue to the Bay Area economy.  Many fans make it an annual trip and local businesses benefit.  While the attendance figure might be skewed, and as Dave Meltzer pointed out, the attendance record for Levi’s Stadium will likely be eclipsed by Super Bowl 50 next year, it still shows the continued popularity of the event.  Even though the WWE has received criticism over the build of this show, it pulled off one of the best shows in Wrestlemania history.

    That’s probably because Ronda Rousey was there.

    WWE is holding Press Conference today at Noon to announce the WWE Network Subscriber numbers…. Looks like Vince wants to announce the subscribers numbers only when they’re at the highest point and hide them when they’re low..

    WWE Network is up to 1.3M subscribers… Also, assuming that they all watched Wrestlemania that is a larger audience that PPV normally is..

    @saldathief

    Raw averages about 4.3M viewers every week on Monday…

    UFC on Fox has been average 2.5 -2.7M viewers…[not UFC TUF, not Fight Nights, not Prelims] The biggest show the UFC has: UFC on Fox.

    But WWE could never put up the ppv numbers that the UFC could.

    Those are Worldwide numbers, the UFC and Boxing numbers are usually domestic ie, just the US & Canada,

    Yes Boxing is big in some other countries but usually North American fights aren’t on PPV in other countries.

Got something to say?
