Tropicana Field in St. Pete will host WWE’s Royal Rumble in January 2024. This is one of the company’s largest events of the year, part of its Big 4 Premium Live Events (PLE) that also includes WrestleMania, Survivor Series, and SummerSlam. During a press conference at the Trade Winds, WWE Superstar Natalya Neidhart said, “This will be the biggest Royal Rumble in WWE history.” We believe the hype.
Tickets are officially on sale and can be purchased here. This event is expected to sell out so reserve your spot while you can.
WWE will head to town for an entire weekend of events across St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa, Fla., highlighted by the Royal Rumble on Saturday, January 27 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. Two days later, Monday Night Raw will emanate from Amalie Arena in Tampa on January 29. This marks the first time that the Royal Rumble will be held in Tampa Bay in front of fans since 1995.
Attendees are reminded that there’s a convenient SunRunner Bus Stop right outside Tropicana Field, so you can access this steller event without a car.
WWE brings Premium Live Events to Tampa Bay
“Tampa Bay has long been a terrific market for WWE,” said WWE Executive Vice President of Live Events John Porco. “Thanks to our partners at the Tampa Bay Rays, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater and the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, we look forward to a fantastic schedule of events in January.”
“We are excited to welcome WWE back to Tropicana Field for the 2024 Royal Rumble,” said Tampa Bay Rays President Matt Silverman. “The Royal Rumble will provide first-class sports entertainment to both those seeing the action in person and watching as part of a worldwide television audience. This event will bring visitors from around the globe to experience the beauty of our area and all it has to offer.”
Royal Rumble could have major impact on St. Pete
These events often have a significant economic impact. The 2023 event took place in the AlamoDome and drew in 51,338 fans from across the globe. The published capacity of Tropicana Field is 42,735. The Rumble would certainly fill hotels, and have our local restaurants and breweries well occupied during its big weekend of live event festivities.
WWE’s WrestleMania generated nearly $175 million for the Tampa area.
