Wrestlemania 32 will be coming to Dallas this Sunday, March 29th and promises to be the most exciting event in wrestling history. Hundreds of thousands of locals and spectators from around the world will crowd AT&T Stadium this weekend.
The event is expected to draw over 100,000 on-site spectators, a Guinness World Records attendance figure for any indoor sporting event ever. The stadium has been completely transformed for Wrestlemania 32 with a football field turned into a wrestling ring and over 1 million square feet of specially produced video screens and LED video displays – including the largest indoor display in North America – all set up so that there is never an obstructed view from any seat at AT&T Stadium.

If you’re worried about getting tickets for Wrestlemania 32, don’t be – availability is seemingly endless as each year’s Wrestlemania sells out in record time. Tickets are available from third party sites like StubHub and Craigslist at a huge markup, so save yourself some money and buy directly from WWE or one of their licensed vendors; TicketMaster, WWE Shop or SeatGeek.
1. Plan Your Route
This is the most important step in attending Wrestlemania 32. Plan early and make sure to give yourself ample travel time to get to the stadium. If you are driving from out of town, traveling on Sunday is practically an impossibility, so plan on arriving early and parking your car at a remote parking lot instead of searching for limited street parking in an area that will be extremely busy. Even if you’re not driving over from out of town you will still want to make sure you have plenty of time to get in and find your seat before the show begins. This means leaving at least 2 hours before the start time on Sunday!
2. Make Travel Arrangements
Getting to AT&T Stadium is the next big step in attending Wrestlemania 32. The stadium will be accessible via car, taxi, rideshare or public transportation.
AT&T Stadium is located at 1 AT&T Way in Arlington, Texas between I-30 and I-35E. It’s about a 30 minute drive from downtown Dallas and about 45 minutes from DFW International Airport. Public transportation runs every 30 minutes and drops off near the stadium (to get to the front entrance you will have to walk about a mile), but there is no bus service running directly to AT&T Stadium on Wrestlemania Sunday so use this option with caution.
3. Make Transportation Arrangements in Arlington
Arlington is an easy place to get to via public transportation. The DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) makes stops in the Dallas DFW airport and downtown Dallas and the DART runs on weekdays at 2:30am, 3:30am and 4:30am, making it easy for fans to get to AT&T Stadium. The DART will also run on Sundays from 11:50pm until midnight so you should be able to get down from the airport or in from Dallas without issue. You can also take a taxi cab or take a ride share down from Dallas or Ft Worth.
4. Get a Hotel or Airbnb Near AT&T Stadium

5. Get Tickets Online
This is probably the most important step in attending Wrestlemania 32 if you’re not going with a group of friends or family members. WWE has released tickets for sale through Ticketmaster, SeatGeek and UnderTheRibbon. But as with most ticket sales, you’ll want to get your tickets as early as possible before they are snatched up by other fans. The cheapest tickets will go fast, so if you’re not into gambling on the secondary market, it’s best to buy online.
