WWE announced that Money in the Bank 2022 will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on the weekend of July 4. An exact date was not given. July 2 falls on a Saturday in 2022.
WWE took a break from the norm with SummerSlam, holding the event on Saturday as opposed to Sunday, which is the traditional day for WWE pay-per-views.
LAS VEGAS, August 21, 2021 – On the heels of a record-breaking SummerSlam in Las Vegas, WWE announced tonight that it will return to Allegiant Stadium July 4th weekend of 2022 for WWE Money In The Bank.
The event marks the first time in history that WWE Money In The Bank will be held at an NFL stadium.
“Las Vegas, its residents and visitors have demonstrated that Vegas is the perfect city for our biggest events,” said Nick Khan, WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer. “Money In The Bank, an appropriately titled event for Vegas and one of our five annual tentpoles, will bring the WWE Universe back to Allegiant Stadium July 4th weekend of 2022.”
“We were thrilled to host SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium. Its success continues to illustrate how the city of Las Vegas is uniquely positioned to host a variety of exciting and diverse sports and entertainment events,” said Chris Wright, Allegiant Stadium General Manager. “Partnering with the LVCVA team has been pivotal in bringing SummerSlam to the market and we are looking forward to collaborating with WWE on hosting Money In The Bank on July 4th weekend in 2022.”

Speaking to Recode Media, Nick Khan explained how being in Las Vegas and at Allegiant Stadium played a role in SummerSlam taking place on Saturday.
"Peacock allows us to test a few things, in terms of dates. SummerSlam, that's on Saturday. Traditionally, we've gone on Sunday with pay-per-views. We believe, on the sports calender, there are certain days where there should be sports and there aren't sports. We believe Saturday is one of those. Traditionally, we had not done that well in terms of box office in Las Vegas. If you speak of the Sunday connotation. No one has ever said, 'Let's go to Vegas and go crazy on a Sunday.' (Vegas) is a Friday and Saturday night town. We thought Saturday would work for us in Vegas and the ticket sales are reflective of that. We have a big audience and a big gate," he said.
