Romania: TVR will NOT participate in Eurovision 2024!

The board of directors of the Romanian national broadcaster (TVR) did not approve Romania’s participation in Eurovision 2024.

Financial constraints and the desire to represent Romania at a performing level are the reasons why the Board of Directors (CA) decided that TVR will not participate in this year’s edition of the Eurovision Song Contest which will be held the next May in Malmo.

The decision was taken in today’s meeting, January 25, with 5 votes “yes”, 4 “abstentions” and 4 “against”.

Also today, the Board of Directors approved the budget for 2024, which does not contain enough funds to guarantee Romania’s participation according to the increasingly high standards of the international competition.

Although it has benefited from an extension of the deadline for registering to the 2024 contest by EBU, TVR is forced to postpone the participation in the Eurovision Song Contest for a future edition, maybe next year.

This means that the 68th Eurovision Song Contest will be held with 37 countries, as originally announced and if Iceland does not withdraw its participation because of Israel.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the udpates!
