On August 27th AEW heads to London’s Wembley Stadium for the first time in company history for the second All In supershow.
On the April 5th episode of Dynamite, AEW President Tony Khan, Adam Cole and Nigel McGuinness made the huge announcement that not only was the promotion embarking on their first trip to the UK, but they are holding the show at Wembley Stadium.
It was a historical move as it marks the first event of its kind to take place in the stadium in over 30 years, but it was also a massive risk as the venue holds over 80,000 people. However, the high risk resulted in high rewards as ticket sales have made the show a massive success.
Upon pre-sale release, the show sold more than 36,000 tickets making $4.7 million in revenue and setting AEW’s records for attendance and live gate in the process. Ticket sales continued to rise and so has revenue.
AEW All In London at Wembley Stadium Has Sold Over 65,000 Tickets
Writing in this morning’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has revealed that the event has surpassed 65,000 in ticket sales, coming around 65,745 in the most recent figures. According to Meltzer, this would net Tony Khan and the promotion a whopping $8,300,000 in gate receipts.
“All In on 8/27 at Wembley Stadium is now at 65,745 which would be a gate around probably just under $8.3 million.”
AEW recently announced the availability of new floor and lower bowl tickets. On the June 7th edition of Control Center, Tony Schiavone revealed changes in the production setup have allowed the company to open up new sections.
This is the first announcement regarding any information surrounding the event since it was first made official. Fans not in attendance are still waiting to find out how they can watch it. During the media call for Double or Nothing, Khan was asked how the event would be broadcast to home viewers. He replied:
“I cannot completely give a full answer to that yet. I think it’s a fine thing to ask, but we’re still working on the solution to that event and how we’re going to offer it. I think it’s going to be, to date, the biggest event we’ve ever had in AEW. And right now, it’s tracking to be the biggest wrestling event ever in England, which is pretty amazing for such a massive country with a massive population and a great history of pro wrestling over many decades.” H/T Wrestling Inc
