Sweden: Calls on Jönköping to bid to host Eurovision 2024!
Local groups and authorities are calling on Jönköping to bid to host the Eurovision Song Contest 2024.
Jönköping could be in the running to host Eurovision 2024 if local groups can convince the city to submit a bid. The call for the southern Swedish city to bid for the Eurovision 2024 Song Contest is being promoted by Småland Tourism, which believes the contest could provide an incredible boost to the city and the wider region.
Jönköping has 150,000 inhabitants and is the most populated city in Småland. Jönköping has strong ties to Eurovision, as it is the birthplace of Agnetha Fältskog, who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 as a member of ABBA.
The venue that Jönköping will claim is the Husqvarna Garden, a purpose-built arena that opened in 2000. The arena however does not meet the capacity requirements for the competition, having a capacity of 7,000 people, it is the tenth largest indoor arena in Sweden.
Sweden with Loreen won the first place in this year’s competition with the song “Tattoo” bringing the competition back to Sweden after 2016.
Do you think Jönköping could take over the hosting of the competition?
