THE NETHERLANDS – If we search the discussion on the web it was originally clearly that most Eurofans want Amsterdam to take over the hosting of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest edition. Maybe because the city of Amsterdam is very familiar to almost all European citizens and the huge majority of us (ebxpially the youth and students) have already visited it.
When the city withdrawn, the city of Rotterdam took over the choice of the fans on Twitter and social media chats. Then some weird publications by regional press claimed that EBU wants Maastricht to take to job as the city will definitely invest a huge amount of money for the Eurovision edition next year. Now the five cities – as we already reported earlier – have officially submitted their bids.

THE NETHERLANDS 🇳🇱 The following Dutch cities are in the race to become Host City of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest: Arnhem, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Maastricht, Rotterdam and Utrecht. After pitching their city and ideas to Dutch public broadcasters NPO, AVROTROS and NOS, the representatives handed their bid books to Shula Rijxman, chairperson of the board of directors of Dutch Member NPO. No effort was spared by representatives of the 5 cities. They travelled in large numbers to Hilversum – the Netherlands’ media city – this morning. Utrecht handed over their bid book via bicycle courier, Maastricht brought champagne and a brass band and ‘s-Hertogenbosch came with their famous pastries Bossche bollen. Rotterdam brought a suitcase with their bid book and a singer from Arnhem brought an ode to Duncan Laurence. @oikotimes @eurovision #oikotimes #eurovision
Now in this post we would like to ask our readers and visitors how do they feel about the biddings and which city they ultimately want to visit as part of their Eurovision 2020 venture. Have in mind that the final decision will be made by the core team made out of the three host broadcasters in August.
In the following poll you can vote up to three cities. This poll is aiming only t demonstrate our interactivity with the fans and not to force any of the official decisions. Results of the poll don’t necessarily reflect the official views of our website and team.
