Tony Khan announced the date of the highly anticipated UK show on the April 5th episode of AEW Dynamite. Khan said that AEW All In will take place on Sunday, August 27th at the Wembley Stadium in London, England.
The Wembley Stadium has a capacity of ninety thousand. As of now, sixty thousand fans have been signed up for the presale. The tickets will go on sale this Friday. However, the card for the show didn’t announce yet but the UK fans are overly excited about the show.
On “The A2theK Wrestling Show”, AEW Senior Vice President Megha Parekh explained why they chose Wembley Stadium to host All In. Parekh stated that the Jacksonville Jaguars (an American Football team owned by Tony Khan’s father) fans will show up on August 27th.
“The Jaguars were one of the first teams and have consistently played over in London at Wembley for a long time. Tony felt really strongly that the market would show up. That’s the incredible thing about working for him. He is a fearless leader in that sense. ‘If we’re going to do it, let’s go for the biggest possible venue.’ We, luckily, do have some familiarity with the operations of Wembley from being there as part of the Jags games. We’ll be able to have the knowledge of what that building can support and set it up for AEW. Our production team is working through it right now in terms of all the details. I’m so excited for AEW’s growth over the last four years. I never would have thought it would have launched and been as successful as it is. It survived as a live events business through covid and then getting back on the road and continued to grow. We always try to look ahead and see what we can do and what we can expand, but it’s pretty incredible what has been built over the last several years.”H/T Fightful
In the same interview, Megha Parekh said that the All Out pay-per-view will take place one week after the All In event.
