On Sunday, August 27th, AEW will head to the United Kingdom for the first time ever.
While it had long been believed that the company would make its UK debut at Craven Cottage, Tony Khan and AEW have gone big, booking the iconic Wembley Stadium. The event will mark the first time that a wrestling event has been held at the venue since SummerSlam in 1992.
It is believed that there were “logistical reasons” why a show at Craven Cottage was ruled out, while a report suggested that AEW is intent on making a huge first impression in the UK.
“The hope is that the show will help the relationship with ITV, and hopefully WBD, since they are marketing this around the 100th anniversary of Warner Brothers and the 100th anniversary of the original Wembley Stadium. They also expect this will strengthen the visibility of the company in Europe, and just running such a big show itself will get the company more exposure.”
With the pre-sale for tickets moving ever closer, the full seat map and ticket price range have been revealed. Top-priced tickets will set fans back £1500 plus a booking fee, while tickets at the other end of the scale will be available for £30 plus a booking fee.
