ESC’17: Host City Announcement Tomorrow at 12:00 CET

The host city for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine is to be announced tomorrow at 12:00 CET.

The announcement was made by the press office of the Ukrainian Government, with a press conference scheduled for September 9 at 13:00 local time. In the running to host the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest is the Capital Kyiv and the Black Sea city of Odessa.

The past week has seen a war of words being thrown between Odessa and Kyiv, the two front-runners to host next years contest. Media in Odessa had reported that the contest would be awarded to their city on Monday, however these reports were false. While Kyiv has been vocal about its ability to host the contest to a higher standard than Odessa.

Dnipro which is the third city in the final phase of the bidding process, has been outspoken about their frustrations with the bidding process. The city officially remains in the running to host, however Zurab Alasania has stated that at this stage the competition is just between Odessa and Kyiv.

  1. Please people, why is everyone saying ‘Let another country host, please’. If this was a country in Western Europe, for example Norway, it would be like ‘Norway is taking good care of the contest.’

    Ukraine is able to host the contest and the contest is going to be held in Ukraine!

  2. Its a sodding joke all this… I think the board should take it off Ukraine and ban them for 1 year for all this hassle they have caused…. I love Eurovision and the whole fun of booking flights, Hotels, time off work etc have been ruined by this country unable to agree… If you are unable to host – Dont enter…. Ukraine will be a difficult country for a lot of people to get to.. I know depending on the city they chose i might need to book 3 or possibly 4 flights each way….
    Stockholm 2016 was such an outstanding and amazing event – Any country could struggle to meet what they put on….

    1. I agree, if a country is unable to host hen stay out of the contest itself.

      #Odessa2017 (if Kyiv is chosen I will literally rip my hair off because then all this waiting is worth nothing)
