Less than an hour later, it was announced that all tickets had sold out.
A BBC spokesperson gave the following statement:
As expected, demand for Eurovision Song Contest tickets was extremely high and tickets for all nine shows sold out in 90 minutes. Congratulations to those who secured their seats to Liverpool Arena in May. We are now looking forward to putting on a brilliant show for our global TV audience and those watching on BBC One in the UK.BBC spokesperson
According to the BBC this is believed to be the first time all nine shows have sold out on the day they went on sale.
With sale tickets being advertised on resale sites for almost £10,000, fans are being urged to avoid scams and to await official resales and further information about Eurovision programming due to be held in Liverpool, including Eurovillage screenings.
Tickets for displaced Ukrainians
The British government previously announced that 3,000 tickets per show will be given to Ukrainians displaced by the Russian invasion.
Ukrainians based in the UK via the “Homes for Ukraine Scheme”, the “Ukraine Family Scheme” and the “Ukraine Extension Scheme”, will be able to apply for tickets for all nine shows. This will be subsidized by the UK’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and a £20 charge will apply to each sale.
