The inaugural Fyter Fest event took place on June 29, 2019 at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida in co-sponsorship with Community Effort Orlando (CEO).[4] While AEW had planned to host the 2020 event at Wembley Arena in London, England, United Kingdom in June that year, the event was moved due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The second event was also originally to air on PPV but was changed to being a two-part special of AEW's weekly television program Dynamite, which will air on July 1 and 8.[5]
