KIEV, Ukraine (VIP-NEWS) — Just 12 weeks before the event tickets sales for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest have been delayed due to dispute about choice of ticket provider.
Concert.ua was previously announced as the winner of the contract to supply tickets, but a last-minute decision by the Antimonopoly Committee, reportedly under pressure from rival bidders, means the event is left without a ticketing partner with just three months left until it happens.
Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, Jon Ola Sand said: “We are disappointed with the delay to the start of ticket sales for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, but are working closely with Host Broadcaster UA:PBC to resolve this situation. The EBU recognises that any tender process needs to be transparent and fair, and hope that tickets can go on sale at the earliest possible opportunity”.
The 2017 Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Kyiv’s International Exhibition Centre on 9th, 11th and 13th May. Last year Ukraine won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song 1944 performed by Jamala.
