Opened: 1998 Capacity: 71,008 (listed, although 75,000 were in attendance for a U2 concert in 2011) The home of the National Football League's Baltimore Ravens, M&T Bank Stadium has a very good location right on the verge of downtown Baltimore and is very accessible by car, light rail or train. Many people can underestimate how important ease and accessibility can be for a venue to host an event where so many people will be roaming around. The fans of Baltimore are incredibly passionate when it comes to sports but interestingly enough, they can be hit-or-miss when it comes to wrestling. Luckily, a very large percentage of WrestleMania attendees come in from elsewhere in the world. Weather isn't going to be a huge issue. Around the time of WrestleMania, Baltimore's average temperatures are 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 Celsius) for the high and 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 Celsius) for the low. Not exactly tropical weather but not exactly arctic freezes, either. Precipitation could be an issue, which is the key reason why this outdoor, open roofed stadium doesn't rank higher on the list. March sees an average of nearly four inches of precipitation in Baltimore, while April sees just over three inches. In 2014, March saw nearly four-and-a-half inches while April topped in at a whopping eight-and-a-half inches. That's putting a lot of things to chance.
