As noted earlier this week, The Orlando Business Journal reported that the Central Florida Sports Commission recently received a request for a proposal from WWE for the opportunity to host WrestleMania 31 in 2015 or WrestleMania 32 in 2016. The report stated that the event would likely take place at the Florida Citrus Bowl, which last hosted WrestleMania in 2008.
Detroit, Michigan is another city that received a request for a bid from WWE. The event would take place at Ford Field, which hosted WrestleMania 23 in 2007. The city of Windsor, Canada, which is about 15 minutes from Detroit, is seeking $60,000 - $65,000 for investment if Detroit is able to secure the event. The benefit for Windsor from WrestleMania 23 was $624,000, from an investment of $60,000.
