Turin, Italy, to host the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in May 2022
The Italian city of Turin has won the race to become the Host City of the 66th Eurovision Song Contest, having triumphed over 16 other competing bids.
The Contest will be held in PalaOlimpico on Tuesday 10, Thursday 12 and Saturday 14 May 2022.
Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl had this to say:
“Turin is the perfect Host City for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.
As we saw during the 2006 Winter Olympics, PalaOlimpico exceeds all the requirements needed to stage a global event of this scale and we have been very impressed with the enthusiasm and commitment from the City of Turin who will welcome thousands of fans next May.
This will be the first Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Italy in 30 years and, together with our Host broadcaster Rai, we are determined to make it a special one.”
