Orlando to bid for WrestleMania again

Feb 28, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

The Orlando Business Journal website is reporting that Orlando is
submitting a bid to host WrestleMania again in either 2015 or 2016. In the
recently released Central Florida Sports Commission newsletter it was
revealed that the Commission received a request for proposal from WWE to
once again host WrestleMania in late March or early April in in either
2015 or 2016. The last time Orlando hosted a WrestleMania was in 2008
where 74,635 fans packed the Citrus Bowl. It was the second time that WWE
hosted a WrestleMania outdoors, with the first time being WrestleMania IX
in Las Vegas. The same stadium is again tipped to host WWE’s biggest event
of the year. WrestleMania XXIV in Orlando generated a total of $51.5
million in economic impact for Central Florida according to a study by
Enigma Research Corporation.
