#EURO2020: Eurovision Host City Baku

On days when we don’t have matches for UEFA Euro 2020, we will be looking at the Host Cities that have also hosted a Eurovision event – whether it be the Eurovision Song Contest, Junior Eurovision Song Contest or the Eurovision Dance Contest. Today we move on to Baku, where the Olympic Stadium is hosting some matches.

2012 – Baku Crystal Hall

The 57th Eurovision Song Contest was held at the Baku Crystal Hall, in Baku. The Contest was hosted by Leyla Aliyeva, Eldar Gasimov and Nargiz Birk-Petersen. Loreen took victory for Sweden, with “Euphoria”, scoring 372 points.
