AEW All In at Wembley is believed to have drawn 72,265 fans through the turnstiles.
For months, many fans have discussed ticket sales and attendance numbers for AEW All In, with lengthy conversations taking place both before and after the Wembley Stadium show on August 27. In terms of what was distributed, it’s believed that the company sold 83,131 paid tickets prior to the event (per WrestleTix) and subsequently declared an attendance of 81,035 people during the show itself.
The announced number was believed to have set a new worldwide record in terms of attendance for a professional wrestling show, but, speculation still remained over the accuracy of the figure.
Now, per Wembley’s local council, the turnstile numbers have been disclosed, in which it’s stated that 72,265 tickets were scanned to gain entry into the building on the night.
“The actual numbers registered entering [Wembley] Stadium through the turnstiles was 72,265 – this is reflective of what attended on the night and not the total number of tickets sold or no-shows etc.”-Brent Borough Council
Of course, it’s not unusual for an event to have less people than paid distribution, as an AEW event is normally said to host between 80-90% of ticket holders.
The number revealed by the Brent Borough Council falls short of the reported amount of fans who entered the stadium for WrestleMania 32, which stands 80,709. Though, the extent to which suite attendees factor in is unclear.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on the attendance for AEW All In as we hear more.
