The home of the Philadelphia Eagles, Lincoln Financial Field, is set to host WrestleMania 40 on April 6 and 7, 2024, per a release from Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, the football team, the Philadelphia Convention and Visitor's Bureau, PHL Sports, and the WWE

WrestleMania is a weeklong event that will include Friday Night SmackDown, the 2024 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony, and Monday Night Raw at the Wells Fargo Center, as well as other fan events at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. 

The WWE will also host multiple community outreach events, including hospital visits and bullying prevention rallies, during that week.
