WWE descends on Cardiff on Saturday, September 3rd, for what is set to be the biggest wrestling event to take place in the United Kingdom in more than three decades. In fact it’ll be exactly thirty years since SummerSlam ’92 took over at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The Principality Stadium is expected to welcome around 60,000 wrestling fans from around the world, and with tickets set to go on sale very soon, here is everything you need to know in order to pick up the hottest ticket in town.
The name of the show was exclusively revealed by WWE Superstar DREW MCINTYRE during a WWE Live event at London’s O2 Arena. Drew, the first-ever British WWE Champion, said of the announcement……..
“The city of Cardiff is ready for WWE Clash at the Castle on September 3rd, and I know that everyone in Wales, across the UK and around the entire world is ready to make history with us, too. Get your tickets and be part of the magic. I can’t wait to hear just how loud Principality Stadium can get.”
John Porco, WWE Senior Vice President, Live Events added……..
“Principality Stadium is the perfect place for a major event, hosting our amazing fans from Wales, throughout all of Europe, and around the world. The weekend will be filled with a variety of WWE experiences that we believe will leave a lasting memory, on par with SummerSlam at Wembley Stadium in 1992.”
Welsh Government Minister for Economy Vaughan Gething said……..
“Wales will provide an iconic location for WWE’s return to the UK after 30 years and showcase our country to a global audience of millions, including extended reach in the USA. This is set to be the perfect addition to a huge year of sport, entertainment and culture in Wales that will attract people from across the globe to experience what our country has to offer.”
Mark Williams, Principality Stadium Manager told us…….
“We’re extremely proud that Principality Stadium has been chosen by WWE to host this major event, which is testament to the stadium’s reputation as a world class venue. Principality Stadium is unique in its position at the heart of the city centre, which will undoubtedly offer WWE fans an unrivalled event experience both inside and outside of the stadium and bring great benefit to the wider city of Cardiff.”
