The commission submitted a bid for Tampa to host WrestleMania in 2023, 2024 or 2025. Raymond James Stadium and Tampa will also be home to one of the eight XFL teams. The XFL season is set to begin roughly two months before WrestleMania 36. Tampa is also set to host Super Bowl LV in 2021.
WWE has held WrestleMania in Florida three times. Orlando hosted the event in 2008 and 2017 while Miami hosted the event in 2012. The announced attendance at each was more than 74,000. Raymond James Stadium seats roughly 66,000.
