The Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS has just finished the mini broadcast. We now know that Eurovision 2020 will be held in Rotterdam. They also revealed when the contest will be taking place, !
The group of potential host cities got whittled down in a rapid pace. At first there were 8 interested, then there were 5 serious host-bids and the organisation picked out the 2 best bids. They were Maastricht and Rotterdam as we all know and in a mini broadcast of 2 minutes they didn’t just reveal the city, but also the date.
They revealed that the final will be taking place on the 16th of May .
Rotterdam is located in the west of The Netherlands and is rather easily accessible. A lot of train connections come and go here and it is of course located in the major citiy triangle of The Netherlands, the Randstad. This means that it is in the busiest area of The Netherlands, but it also means that you can visit a lot more things easily. The Venue will be Ahoy! This venue has previously hosted Junior Eurovision and has hosted many more major events in the past.
