EUROVISION 2020 🇳🇱 It seems that the venue ceiling was not after all the factor which cost Maastricht the hosting of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest. It seems the city council had a dispute with NPO/NOS. In a secret document which is now public, Maastricht claims that NPO/NOS contract struggle them. The councillor of Finance for Maastricht, John Aarts, was reportedly “in shock” after reading it. Also the council decided not to renovate the venue estimating that it wasn’t worth it. It seems that the city was rejected already from August 8th. The contract was already rejected by the Maastricht city advocate, something that Rotterdam did immediately and without questions.
