EUROVISION Song Contest 2013 MALMÖ

The decision about the host city was open till the very last minute, SVT says. They received proposals from Stockholm and Malmö. It was not really an easy decision, Martin Österdahl, Executive Producer of the 2013 contest says. We chose Malmö because there is a very good infrastructure and we have good experience of holding Melodifestivalen and the Eurovision Song Contest there, he explains. The choice of Malmö is based on an overall assessment of the environment in which we think is best for the format of the Eurovision Song Contest, both in terms of TV shows and on the preparations.
Malmö Arena where the contest will be held is a relatively new arena, inaugurated in 2008. It has a capacity of up to 15,500 for concerts but for the Eurovision Song Contest, the capacity will most likely be lower. The semi-finals of the Swedish national selection for Europe's favourite TV show have been held there since 2009. Malmö Arena is very similar to Hartwall Arena in Helsinki where the Eurovision Song Contest was held in 2007. The arena is yet to be formally confirmed by the Reference Group of the Eurovision Song Contest.
