Gothenburg, Stockholm, Malmö and Örnsköldsvik have applied to host the Eurovision Song Contest 2024, after Loreen has won this year’s contest with the song “Tattoo“.
Today, Göteborg & Company received information from SVT‘s project manager that the Eurovision Song Contest will not be held in Gothenburg next year.
Magnus Hallberg, vice president & event manager at Göteborg & Co. mentions:
“It’s very sad. We are competitive people so we would have liked to have won and also had great support from politicians, the Swedish trade fair, the hotels and Gothia. But it is what it is.”
SVT did not give any reason why Gothenburg was not awarded the host of Eurovision. Also, according to information to Aftonbladet, as Annie Månsson and Torbjörn Ek reported a few minutes ago, Örnsköldsvik is also not selected to organize the competition.
SVT is expected to announce which city will be selected to host the event today, as we have already informed you a couple of weeks ago, and according to Aftonbladet at 2pm CET.
