City: Where will Eurovision 2025 be held?

Already a week before Switzerland's Eurovision victory, the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRG SSR) and a twelve-member task force started working on a possible Swiss ESC 2025. On Monday after Nemo's victory, the task force began the planning of Eurovision 2025.

In the last week of May, the Host City Bid Book was ready and sent to the cities interested in hosting Eurovision 2025. The Host City Bid Book is a comprehensive catalog of requirements for hosting Eurovision like a suitable arena, airport connection and financing.

SRG SSR has not disclosed how many cities are currently in the race.

The interested cities, together with the respective arenas and the cantons, have until the end of June to draw up their bids, and the goal for SRG SSR is that the host city for Eurovision 2025 will be decided in August:

– At the end of August, we want to have decided where the ESC will be held in mid-May 2025, says Edi Estermann, head of the media at SRG SSR.

Parallel to the host city process, the project structure of Eurovision 2025 is being developed. It needs personnel for production, technique, security, finance, communication, marketing, sponsorship and legal issues. In total, there will be hundreds of people involved, says Estermann.

Participants

14 countries have expressed their interest for participation in the contest, which is subject to change:

EBU Member Broadcasters, on behalf of their countries, have until mid-October 2024 to formally submit their applications to take part in Eurovision 2025.
