WWE has officially announced that SummerSlam 2015 will take place from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday, August 23, 2015.
WWE and the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority will once again form a local organizing committee with partners that include the Meadowlands Regional Chamber, MetLife Stadium, the New York Football Giants and the New York Jets.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to extend our phenomenal relationship with our partners in the region for SummerSlam weekend next year,” said John P. Saboor, executive vice president of Special Events for WWE. “This partnership would not be possible without the support of the NJSEA as they welcome WWE’s second largest destination event of the year to the New Jersey area.”
“On behalf of all of our area partners, we are excited to have SummerSlam come to IZOD Center in 2015,” said Wayne Hasenbalg, president and CEO of the NJSEA. “We are proud to continue our incredible partnership with WWE and build on the success of last year’s sold-out WrestleMania 29 at MetLife Stadium.”
SummerSlam has been held at the IZOD Center three previous times in 1989, 1997 and 2007. STAPLES Center in Los Angeles hosted the sold-out event the past six years.
Ticket information for SummerSlam will be announced in the coming months.
