Tickets sales for WWE Clash at the Castle in Glasgow have topped 10k just under a month before the event.

According to WrestleTix on Patreon, who regularly collates seat counts for every big wrestling event, 10,015 tickets have been distributed for the Premium Live Event on Saturday June 15 at the OVO Hydro.

This marks an increase of just under 2k from the last time the US wrestling promotion ran the venue back in October for a house show which, unlike Clash at the Castle, won’t be shown live on PPV or on the WWE Network streaming platform.

Sales for WWE’s Smackdown show the night before at the same venue haven’t sold quite as well with 8,815 tickets distributed so far, although a large part of this could be down to it clashing with the opening match-up of Euro 2024 which sees Scotland taking on tournament hosts Germany.

Despite the event being praised by council leader Susan Aitken for what it could bring to the city, ticket sales were subject to controversy amongst fans who slammed the ‘extortionate’ prices on offer, with the cheapest seats at the back of the Hydro going for £300.

Nonetheless, it appears the show is getting close to a sell-out, which may convince the WWE to return to the country on a regular basis, with the last televised taping in Glasgow being back in 2016, with Clash at the Castle being Scotland’s first PPV wrestling event from a promotion from the USA.
