Yes, it is now September which means we have officially begun the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest season. Of course, with a new Eurovision Song Contest season comes a new edition of everyone’s favourite Eurovision-related game… Eurovision Prediction 2020!
Breaking all records in 2019… thanks to you!
Between 2014 and 2017, the fantastic Glen Bartlett created and hosted this fantastic online game but unfortunately stepped down from the game after the contest in Kyiv. Thankfully, he let us here at ESCXTRA.com become the new hosts of the game! Both regular players and brand new players joined us for Eurovision Prediction 2019, our second year in charge, and we absolutely SMASHED the previous record number of participants for a second consecutive year!
An unprecedented 345 of you took part in Eurovision Prediction 2019. A whopping 58% increase over game’s previous record of 218 players achieved back in 2018, our first year in charge. In addition, we have increased the number of players by more than six times the 58 players that took part in 2017. Once again, we thank everyone who has played in 2019. Now, we hope you’ll join us all over again for Eurovision Prediction 2020!
