WWE.com has confirmed that WrestleMania 31 will be taking place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California in spring of 2015. The news was first confirmed in a post by nbcbayarea.com. It was chosen over Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

It will also host the 50th edition of the Super Bowl scheduled to take place in February 2016. The stadium has a seating capacity of 68,500 which is expandable up to 75,000.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is expected to make the official announcement in a press conference on Tuesday. Superstars including John Cena and CM Punk are expected to be present.

The area will also host the week-long activities which are part of WrestleMania. These include autograph signing events, WrestleMania Axxess, WWE Hall of Fame ceremony and the Monday Night Raw show after WrestleMania.

There is a report that AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas has been selected to host WrestleMania 32 in spring of 2016. However a confirmation from WWE is yet to come.

WM3PONTIACThe home of the Cowboys has a seating capacity of 80,000 (and is expandable up to over 100,000), making it the fourth biggest stadium in the league. During the 2010 NBA All-Star Game, the stadium created a new sporting event record with an attendance of 108,713. Earlier, WrestleMania III, which took place in Detroit, Michigan, had the record registered to its name with an attendance of 93,173. If WrestleMania 32 takes place in Texas, WWE has a golden opportunity to register the record on its name once again.

Next year in 2014, WrestleMania will celebrate its 30th anniversary. The event will take place on April 6, 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. 65,000+ attendance is expected for the first WrestleMania to be held in the state of Louisiana.

    The new 49ers stadium is known around here as an unmitigated disaster! It will destroy the meager remains of the community that survived the economic predations of the last 30 years as mindless expanionism spread over North 1st street.

    We already have too many buildings standing empty, with little hope of getting tenants. This will just increase the distress, and, as usual the taxpayers will pay.

    To bribe their way in the developers promised local jobs and a $25million grant to local schools. Last month they won a court decision to nullify the school $25million grant!

    Except for a couple kingpins, none of the capitalists and property owners in the area are involved in the development. All the money and ownership is from outside the community and all the profits will flow outward.

    Few of the local building contractors and workers are being hired. There are armies of temporary workers from Idaho and Alabama who are working here briefly and will return to their distant homes with their money. Even the local businesses get short shrift from those guys who either move into “Extended-Stay” dormitories owned by remote businesses and built cheaply on old dumpsites (and will be abandoned when this is done), or they live in large Motorhomes they tow from Idaho and Alabama.

    It’s a disaster for San Jose and Santa Clara. The bitter residue will be roads choked by drunken football fans on Hiways 237 and 101.

    But the NFL is a founding member of the establishment, so What The NFL Wants the NFL Will get.
