The Scoop

Tele2 Arena back in the race after all?

Earlier today, Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported that Tele2 Arena and Friends Arena will not put in a bid to host the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. However, one of the people quoted there has now sort of withdrawn his statement…
The CEO of Hammarby, Henrik Kindlund, stated that they could not make room for Eurovision for four to six weeks earlier today. We reported this storyย here. That same CEO has now however said that there may be a possibility for Tele2 Arena to host Eurovision after all. He said so in an interview with Stockholm Direkt.
Kindlund however added that moving Hammarby from Tele2 Arena will only be possible if a good solution is found. It is not sure what kind of solution Kindlund was aiming for, but it seems he’s contradicting himself today… A story to be continued!
