WWE Confirms 2024 Royal Rumble Will Take Place In Tampa Bay

The WWE Royal Rumble is coming back to Florida.

WWE confirmed the 2024 Royal Rumble will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. The event will take place on Saturday, January 27. WWE also confirmed a Monday Night RAW taping will be held at the Amalie Arena on January 29.

“Tampa Bay has long been a terrific market for WWE,” said WWE Executive Vice President of Live Events John Porco. “Thanks to our partners at the Tampa Bay Rays, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater and the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, we look forward to a fantastic schedule of events in January.”

“We are excited to welcome WWE back to Tropicana Field for the 2024 Royal Rumble,” said Tampa Bay Rays President Matt Silverman. “The Royal Rumble will provide first-class sports entertainment to both those seeing the action in person and watching as part of a worldwide television audience. This event will bring visitors from around the globe to experience the beauty of our area and all it has to offer.”

Ready To Rumble

This will be the seventh Royal Rumble to take place in Florida, and the second at Tropicana Field. WWE also brought the event to “The Trop” in 2021 when they called the venue the Thunderdome home. (That event did not have fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)

WWE also brought the Rumble to Tampa in 1995. That event was held at the USF Sun Dome (now the Yuengling Center).

“As a leader in event production and promotion, we are thrilled to collaborate with WWE to bring Royal Rumble to our destination,” Caleb Peterson, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater Senior Business Development Manager. “We look forward to welcoming all of the WWE fans to our community, a community that will certainly match their energy and enthusiasm for sports entertainment. A special thank you to our community partners – the Tampa Bay Rays, City of St. Petersburg, and Tampa Bay Sports Commission – for their role in creating this unique opportunity for our destination.”

“Team Tampa Bay loved hosting WrestleMania 37 two years ago and we’re now beyond excited to have the opportunity to collaborate again with our longtime friends at WWE,” said Rob Higgins, Tampa Bay Sports Commission Executive Director. “Royal Rumble Weekend in January of 2024 will be a phenomenal regional effort that spans Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties including both Tropicana Field and Amalie Arena. Together, we’re focused on making sure that WWE Universe is treated to a weekend that’s filled with memories that last a lifetime.”
