This marks the first time the Glendale/Phoenix area will play host to WrestleMania and the electrifying, history-making phenomenon promises to add to the marvelous splendor and financial prosperity of its gracious host. In 2008, WrestleMania XXIV pumped $50 million into the local Orlando economy and set the Citrus Bowl attendance record with 74,635 fans from all 50 states, five Canadian provinces and 21 countries.

This year, the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania will take place in Houston's Reliant Stadium on April 5, where it is expected to set the stadium attendance record.

WrestleMania XXVI will be televised to more than 100 countries, proving once again that it is truly an international sensation. Visitors from around the world are expected to flock to Arizona and participate in a week's worth of activities that will culminate with WrestleMania XXVI. The week-long celebration will feature WrestleMania Axxess, WWE Hall of Fame, WrestleManiArt, exhibition, Monday Night Raw and a WrestleMania "Rocks the Block" street party.
