September 1, 2018


Eilat, the third city after Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv to put in a bid to host Eurovision 2019 has withdrawn it's bid and is now out of the race, which means it's down to Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv.


Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor for The Eurovision Song Contest, has said in an interview with Israeli TV Channel 11 that Eilat's venue was not suitable for the contest, but applauded them for thinking outside the box. Eilat previously stated that they had planned to host the contest in the Port of Eilat, with a temporary venue being built to host 10,000 spectators. You can watch the full interview below:



The official Twitter page for Israeli broadcaster, KAN, stated that: "Eilat has left the race to host Eurovision. Jerusalem or Tel-Aviv will host Eurovision 2019 in Israel, the decision will be made within the next week."


So, it's now The Pais Arena in Jerusalem versus Tel-Aviv Convention Centre. Which city would you like to see host Eurovision 2019? Let us know in the comments below!
