WWE has officially announced that this year's Money in the Bank event will be exclusive to the SmackDown LIVE brand instead of being exclusive to both SmackDown LIVE and Raw, as it was in years past when the Brand Extension had taken place.
The announcement was made via WWE.com, where it was also announced that tickets for the event will go on sale this coming Friday, February 17th at 10:00 AM CT via Ticketmaster.com.
Below is WWE's official announcement:
"One of sports-entertainment’s most historic cities will be the site of one of WWE’s greatest traditions when the Scottrade Center in St. Louis hosts SmackDown LIVE’s Money in the Bank 2017 on Sunday, June 18.
Tickets for Team Blue’s huge pay-per-view will be available at Ticketmaster.com starting this Friday, Feb. 17, at 10 a.m. CT.
Since the event’s introduction in 2010, Money in the Bank has quickly become one of WWE’s most anticipated cards of the year, thanks to its exciting and eponymous Money in the Bank Ladder Match, the winner of which earns the right to cash in a guaranteed title opportunity against the WWE Champion.
What insanity will take place this year as SmackDown LIVE Superstars throw caution to the wind in the pursuit of championship glory?
Find out for yourself by securing your Money in the Bank tickets as soon as they become available this Friday!"
