WWE To Debut In Egypt Next Month

WWE announced today that they will present a three-show tour in Egypt for the first time from Thursday, October 18 through Saturday, October 20, 2012 at the Cairo Stadium Complex. With its debut in Egypt, WWE continues to expand the reach of its business, including live events in six new countries in 2012.

"We're thrilled to announce this three-day, live event tour in Egypt," said Ed Wells, Managing Director and Senior Vice President of WWE International. "These shows in Cairo are further testament to the strength and popularity of the WWE brand throughout the MENA region and build on our efforts to expand our business internationally."

WWE will be working with Egyptian live events promoter, Creative Design, to bring the tour to local fans. Creative Design previously brought WWE to Doha, Qatar last year.

"WWE is one of the largest names in family entertainment, and it's a great honor to hold such an enormous event in a wonderful country like Egypt," said Assem Al Sheikh, Chairman of Creative Design.

Tickets go on sale starting September 8 and can be purchased from Ticketsmarche.com.
