  1. Le nombre est plafonné a 46 pays car 5 n’ont pas encore dit si ils reviendraient
    • L’Australie n’a pas encore le feu vert….
    • La Bosnie-Herzégovine on verra bien, mais ça s’annonce mal parti…
    • La Croatie, toujours pas de décision…
    • Le Liban, ça n’est que des rumeurs, il y a beaucoup de discutions
    • Le Maroc, aucune annonce pour le moment.

    41 pays c’est déjà bien après ^^
