Eurovision 2023: Which UK city could host the song contest next year after Ukraine wins?

Eurovision Song Contest has closed another year with a decisive victory of Ukraine.

The UK also performed extremely well, with TikTok star Sam Ryder taking second place with his song SPACE MAN.

It was the best result the UK has seen in 20 years, proving that the nation can win again with worthy talent behind it.

Of course, with Ukraine winning, it means that the country will host the show in 2023, according to the rules of the competition.

However, with the Russian invasion still in force, that may not be possible.

It begs the question which country will host the show and in which city it will take place.

Where will Eurovision 2023 be held?

Millions of fans from around the world showed their support for Ukraine this weekend by voting for their repertoire, Kalush Orchestra.

They received over 400 points, confirming the bookie’s previous bets that the country would wipe out the leaderboard this year.

That means Ukraine will host the show in 2023, as traditionally the winning country will host the event the following year.

On the eve of the competition, rapper Kalush Oleh Psiuk said: “Eurovision next year will be in the house for free and rebuilt, rebuilt and happy Ukraine.”

The specific city for Eurovision 2023 is yet to be decided, but it cannot be just any location.

There are certain criteria that a host city must meet in order to be included in the programme.

First, the city needed space for up to 10,000 spectators at a venue that also had to accommodate around 2,000 competitors, delegates, fans and journalists.

There should also be an international airport in the city to allow tens of thousands of participants to come and go for the event.

Sadly, given Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine, it currently seems unlikely that any city in the country can achieve all of these goals.

It means another country needs to take the lead and host the show.

This is usually a member of the “Big Five” – ​​England, Germany, France, Spain and Italy.

Will the UK host Eurovision 2023?

Since the UK is one of the Big Five and the top ranked country out of the remaining four is in second place, it makes sense that the UK will be hosting the show.

However, the UK has yet to officially request to host the programme, while Spain is believed to have done so in 2023.

The mayor of Stockholm in Sweden, is also offered to host, although it is unlikely that the European Broadcasting Union will accept the offer since they are not part of the Big Five.

The UK has a history of hosting the show for another country – in fact, it has done so four times in the past.

Ukrainian Psiuk said: “Yes, yes, it is true that the UK supports us a lot.

“Of course, great gratitude to the UK, from all the inhabitants of this country, to you.

“A lot of Ukrainians are also expressing immense gratitude for your country.”

The UK is hosting, London will be the most likely city for the event.

Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester could also be hosts.

When is Eurovision 2023?

There is no official date for Eurovision 2023, although it will be held in May next year.

Finals are usually held on Saturdays, with semi-finals built over the course of the preceding two weeks.

The show has been held every May since 1995.
