On WWE.com, it was officially announced that the 2020 Royal Rumble will take place at the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. The date for the 2020 Royal Rumble has been set for January 26.
The Minute Maid Park was opened in 2000 as the home of the major league baseball team, the Houston Astros. It has a seating capacity of 41,168.
