Minneapolis, Minnesota, will host WWE Summerslam over two nights at U.S. Bank Stadium on Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd, 2026.

Minneapolis will host its first Premium Live Event since TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs in 2019. It is also the first time the city will host a WWE event at a stadium.

In a statement, the WWE says, “U.S. Bank Stadium is an absolutely world-class venue, situated in a city with rich wrestling history and an amazing fan base,” said Chris Legentil, WWE EVP, Talent Relations & Head of Communications. “We’re excited to bring two nights of SummerSlam to Minneapolis in 2026.” 

“U.S. Bank Stadium is honored to host WWE’s SummerSlam on Minnesota’s biggest stage in 2026,” said Michael Vekich, Chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. “We look forward to providing a warm welcome and best-in-class experience at U.S. Bank Stadium for WWE Superstars, staff, fans, and guests.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the WWE Universe to Minnesota for SummerSlam,” said Wendy Blackshaw, President and CEO of Minnesota Sports and Events. “We will make this summertime wrestling extravaganza accessible for fans of all ages. Through a variety of festivities and ancillary events in the Twin Cities and affordable tickets to the main events at U.S. Bank Stadium, this will be a SummerSlam for all.”

U.S. Bank Stadium is the home to the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. The stadium has hosted numerous big events, such as Super Bowl LII (2018) and the NCAA Men’s Final Four (2019). U.S. Bank Stadium was named the NFL’s top venue by The Athletic in 2023.

WWE made this announcement following the record-breaking ticket on-sale event for this year’s SummerSlam at Cleveland Browns Stadium on Saturday, August 3.
