Glasgow or Liverpool will host Eurovision 2023 Song Concert

EITHER Glasgow or Liverpool will host next year’s Eurovision Song Contest after the shortlist of cities in contention was cut from seven to two.

The announcement means Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield have missed out on the chance to stage the competition next May.

The BBC said the two remaining cities, which both have riverside arena venues, had ‘the strongest overall offer’.

A final decision will be made ‘within weeks’, the broadcaster said.




The UK was chosen to host the 2023 contest after organisers decided it could not be staged by this year’s winner, Ukraine, because of the ongoing war. The UK’s singer Sam Ryder was the runner-up this May.

The winning location will attract thousands of visitors and the attention of around 160 million TV viewers around the world.
