Citrus Bowl in Orlando will host WrestleMania 33

It is now official that WrestleMania 33 will be on April 2, 2017, at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

WWE will hold a press conference tomorrow morning in Orlando to make the announcement.

The Orlando Sentinel and Brian Fritz were given the story to break including quotes from Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, who is expected to attend the press conference along with Florida Governor Rick Scott and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs.  John Saboor of WWE credited the improvements in the Citrus Bowl as a key reason for Orlando getting the show for the second time in ten years.

Orlando won out over more than a dozen other locations when the decision was made not to go with Minneapolis.

Also announced is that the Hall of Fame ceremony and the post Mania Raw will take place at the Amway Arena, while Fan Axxess will take place at the Orange County Convention Center.

Dyer was part of the team that went to Stamford in December to clinch the deal and said the city would like to get WrestleMania every five years.
