The EBU and Polish broadcaster TVP have just announced that the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be hosted at Arena Gliwice in Gliwice-Silesia on November 24.
A city full of history
Gliwice is one of the oldest cities located in Silesia. While it might not be a well known city to many, it has a variety of cultural and historical sites. Meanwhile, Silesia is divided into two parts: Lower and Upper Silesia. The area is known for its incredible culture and heritage according to the EBU.
We are delighted to announce that Gliwice-Silesia, will be the Host City of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The show in Minsk was a spectacular event and we are in no doubt that TVP will put on an equally brilliant show; riding high on their win last year. As well as producing an unbeatable bid, it is extra special to have last year’s winning country host the event, and we believe that the TVP team will invest the same passion, dedication and fun into planning the event for this NovemberJon Ola Sand
The city was rumoured as the host for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 as early as December 2018 when we reported on the city and its region. Arena Gliwice is one of the most modern indoor venues in Poland and can seat 17,000 ticket holders.
The countdown is on!
Junior Eurovision 2019 will be held on November 24 at Arena Gliwice. Which “boasts incredible facilities” and has hosted various concerts and sports events. It is one of the largest sports and entertainment venues in Poland.
This comes after Roksana Wegiel won in Belarus last year with her song “Anyone I Want to Be”, scoring 215 points.
