The date and location for the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event has been confirmed by WWE. The show will be taking place on Saturday February 19th, and will be taking place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The news was announced in a press release on WWE.com, which states the following regarding the future pay-per-view:
The General Entertainment Authority, in cooperation with WWE, has announced that the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event will be held at the world’s largest pillarless superdome in Jeddah, on Saturday, Feb.19, 2022. More details of the event will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Elimination Chamber show complements the commitment of the General Entertainment Authority to provide the most famous international events and entertainment shows. This show was preceded by several previous partnerships with WWE to present international shows in the kingdom, which achieved remarkable local and international success, including the recent WWE Crown Jewel show in Riyadh Season 2021 and WWE Super ShowDown in the previous Riyadh Season in early 2020.
It was previously rumoured that WWE would be returning to Saudi Arabia in February and the iconic gimmick match would be taking place. This was reported by multiple sources including Andrew Zarian and Dave Meltzer. This will be the second time that WWE have returned to Jeddah since the pandemic halted international touring back in 2020, with Crown Jewel 2021 being the return back in October 2021.
This will be the 7th time that the company have hosted a pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia. While multiple stipulation matches have taken place during the Saudi Arabia shows, this is the first time that one of the stipulation themed pay-per-views will be taking place inside of the kingdom.
In recent years, multiple Elimination Chamber matches take place in the event of the same name. Typically, either a championship will be defended inside the structure, or the winner will receive a championship match at WrestleMania.
