The BBC and European Broadcasting Union (EBU) have revealed that Liverpool will host the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, following a competitive bidding process. 

There had been a shortlist of seven UK cities before Glasgow and Liverpool were announced as the final two contending for Host City status.

Liverpool will host Eurovision in place of 2022 winners Ukraine, which is currently involved in a conflict with Russia.

The Grand Final of next year’s Eurovision Song Contest will take place at the M&S Bank Arena on Saturday, May 13, with the semi-finals taking place on May 9 and 11.
