On Wednesday, the WWE announced that Wrestlemania XXVIII will take place from Sun Life Stadium on April 1, 2012.
Miami-Dade County Commissioner and Chairman of the Miami-Dade Sports Commission Jose “Pepe” Diaz, Miami-Dade Sports Commission Executive Director Mike Sophia, Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee, former Dolphins Quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer Dan Marino, and Miami Dolphins limited partner and Grammy Award Winner Emilio Estefan, joined WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon and WWE’s Senior Vice President of Special Events John Saboor at a press conference from the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
“On behalf of WWE, I would like to thank Commissioner Diaz and all his colleagues for their support, and the Miami-Dade Sports Commission for graciously rolling out the red carpet to bring WrestleMania to one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities,” said McMahon. “We look forward to adding WrestleMania to the list of prestigious events held at Sun Life Stadium.”
Wrestlemania returns to the state of Florida for the second time in five years. In 2008, Wrestlemania XXIV was held at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
