The host city of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest will be revealed in just a few months time.
Dutch broadcasters NPO, AVROTROS and NOS have recently set a deadline for cities to submit their bids to host next year’s edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Cities have until July 10th to submit their bids, and to date the following cities and regions have expressed their interest:
- Den Bosch
- Den Haag
The criteria to become host city includes clauses such as having a suitable venue, capacity, accommodation and more.
How the Bidding Process Works
Last month NPO, NOS and AVROTROS explained the bidding process for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. At the start of June the cities or regions that express interest will receive a document from the broadcasters which will outline the full criteria that needs to be met should they be selected. This forms the foundation for each interested bid.
Those cities or regions still in the running will at this point have four weeks to create their “bid books” which will then need to be submitted at the start of July.
During July, the organisers will then have the option of visiting those cities and regions in the running. Following the assessments, the host city for the 2020 contest will then be chosen with consultation from the EBU.
