Eurovision 2025: Bern and Biel/Bienne Considering Joint Bid to Host!

Bern and Biel/Bienne Municipal Councils are considering a joint bid to host the Eurovision Song Contest 2025. The de facto capital of Switzerland Bern as well as the birthplace of this year’s Eurovision winner Nemo, Biel/Bienne are examining the possibility of hosting the Eurovision song contest at the Bernexpo Groupe Exhibition Center.

In a statement by the Biel Council, they said:

“Hosting the major event in Nemo’s home region is therefore a logical step and would be a great opportunity from the point of view of the cities of Bern and Biel. The ESC offers the venue enormous exposure and would fit in well with the diverse, open and bilingual capital region of Bern and Biel.”

The potential venue for the contest is Bern Festhalle, while Tissot Arena in Biel/Bienne will host other competition -related events.

The same statement also mentioned the following:

“The three partners will now jointly examine the detailed requirements dossier from the SRG in detail. In particular, it must be clarified whether the very high requirements for the venue can be met as part of an application. This involves issues such as security, logistics and the high costs that the venue will incur. The new festival hall meets the requirements of a modern event infrastructure and will be ready in time for the ESC to take place. 

A final decision as to whether an application will be submitted has not yet been made. This will be made within the application period until the end of June. The municipal councils of Bern and Biel as well as those responsible for the Bernexpo Groupe are convinced that the ESC would be a great celebration and a unique opportunity. They therefore hope that a joint application will be possible. At the same time, it is important to all those involved to only submit an application dossier if there is a real chance of being awarded the contract.”
