All Elite Wrestling issued the following press release to announce the Fight For the Fallen event that will be held on July 13 in Jacksonville, Florida at Daily’s Place Amphitheater at TIAA Bank Field.
JACKSONVILLE, FL (April 15, 2019) – Even as anticipation for DOUBLE OR NOTHING on May 25 and FYTER FEST on June 29 continues to build, All Elite Wresting is already looking ahead to its third major event by returning to the scene of where it all started three months ago –Jacksonville, Florida.
“FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN” will take place in Daily’s Place Amphitheater at TIAA Bank Field at 7:30pm ET on Saturday, July 13, just a few feet from where AEW was first introduced at a rally and to millions of YouTube viewers around the world. Stars scheduled to appear during the inspirational event on July 13 include Cody, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, PAC, Hangman Adam Page, Brandi Rhodes, Allie and many more.
Fittingly entitled FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN, proceeds from the gate will benefit Jacksonville’s Victim Assistance Advisory Council (VAAC), which coordinates cooperative efforts among social service, criminal justice, mental health and other agencies to provide assistance to crime victims and their families.
“Last year Jacksonville endured a horrible mass shooting at the Jacksonville Landing, and the VAAC was a tremendous support for the community,” said Tony Khan, AEW President. “When we decided to host Fight for the Fallen, there was no question that AEW would stage the event here in Jacksonville and would give back to the organization that helped so many people during that incredibly tragic time.”
“We are extremely grateful to All Elite Wrestling and the ‘Fight for the Fallen’ event for this generous donation,” said Lenny Curry, Jacksonville Mayor. “Making sure victims of violent crimes and their families have the support they need at one of the toughest times in their lives is a top priority for me. This donation is crucial in helping continue our efforts and providing victim assistance services when it is truly needed the most.”
