“AEW DYNAMITE: GRAND SLAM” Shares the Love with NYC

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) served a massive announcement today for the city  of New York as the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens will host its first ever professional wrestling event on Wednesday, Sept. 22. 

The world’s largest tennis-specific stadium adds another milestone to its storied history as the world-class wrestlers of AEW take center court for a live AEW DYNAMITE: GRAND SLAM show in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Tickets for the historic event, airing live on TNT, will go on  sale Friday, July 16, at 10 a.m. ET via AEWTix.com and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets start at $25 (not including service charges or fees).  

With the roar of passionate fans still echoing from the US Open, which runs from Aug. 30- Sept. 12, AEW will put their own spin on singles and tag-team matches with a stellar line up of legendary wrestlers and homegrown talent. AEW recently became the first major  wrestling promotion to return to a traveling schedule since March 2020. After safely  hosting 30 live, ticketed events over the past 10 months in Jacksonville, Fla., AEW is bringing  the exhilaration of its flagship show AEW DYNAMITE back on the road starting in Miami on  July 7.  

“We wanted our first show in New York City to be extraordinary and epic in scale, and there’s no better venue to bring out the best in our talent and creativity than the iconic  USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center,” said Tony Khan, CEO, GM and Head of  Creative of AEW. “We love the concept of wrestling in a non-traditional venue and placing  our AEW ring on center court in the awe-inspiring Arthur Ashe Stadium. I can’t wait for fans  to experience our live AEW DYNAMITE: GRAND SLAM show in one of the coolest venues on  the planet.”

“We’re incredibly excited to welcome AEW DYNAMITE to the USTA Billie Jean King National  Tennis Center and Arthur Ashe Stadium,” said Danny Zausner, Chief Operating Officer, USTA  Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. “Continuing to bring new, world-class sports and  entertainment events to the home of the US Open is a primary benefit of our strategic  transformation. Our versatility now allows us to welcome new fans and spectators throughout  the year, turning our venue, our community and our neighboring businesses into year-round  destinations.” 

As a reminder, catch a special Friday edition of AEW DYNAMITE on TNT on Friday, June 18, at 10  p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.
