SRG SSR confirm bidding process for Eurovision 2025

Following Nemo’s victory in Malmö, the search is on for the Swiss city that will host the Eurovision Song Contest 2025 next May. In order to bring clarity for interested cities, SRG SSR has prepared a City Bid Book.

City Bid Book sent to all candidate host cities for Eurovision 2025

The infamous City Bid Book is a document issued to all cities interested in hosting the Eurovision Song Contest. Within the documents are details of the EBU requirements for a city to host the largest music competition in Europe. This includes, details of surrounding infrastructure needs, hotel capacity and venue specifications. As well as provisions in place for the surrounding events to the contest, such as Euroclub and the Turquoise Carpet launch event.

Alongside this, a task force of 12 members have been gathered to provide knowledge and expertise in the running and organisation of the contest. Recently, Reto Peritz and Moritz Stadler were confirmed as co-executive producers for Eurovision 2025.

As yet, SRG have not confirmed which cities are officially in the running. However, freedom to disclose this information, lies with the cities themselves. So far, Zurich, Geneva and Basel have officially confirmed their bids. Meanwhile, St. Gallen, Lausanne and Lugano have ruled out bidding. Fribourg and Bern/Biel are still in consideration.

The candidate cities have until the end of June to collaborate with the cantons governing their regions and the venue operators to finalise their bids. A decision on the host city is scheduled to be announced in August. Currently, no date for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2025 has been confirmed. However, strong indications are that it could be May 10 2025.
