WRESTLEMANIA 41: Las Vegas coughs up $5 million to bring WrestleMania 41 to the city

Posted on 5/15/124 by Colin Vassallo

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority paid a total
of $5 million to bring WrestleMania to the city next year
according to a report on Las Vegas-based 8NewsNow.com.

WrestleMania 41 was heavily tipped to go to Minneapolis
until Vegas got in the picture and earlier this month WWE
announced that Sin City will host its second WrestleMania
and first one since WrestleMania IX in 1993.

WWE World will return and will be held at the Las Vegas
Convention Center during WrestleMania week while Lisa
Motley, VP of Sports and Special Events for the LVCVA, also
said that Raw and Smackdown would take place “at an MGM
Resorts venue” although she did not specify which one.

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

Motley also noted that WrestleMania 41 will host more than
300 media outlets from 12 different countries.
