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 Amsterdam, where the Johan Cruyff Arena is hosting some matches.
1970 – RAI Theatre
The 15th Eurovision Song Contest was held at the RAI Theatre in Amsterdam. The Contest was hosted by Willy Dobbe. Dana took victory for Ireland, with “All Kinds of Everything”, scoring 32 points.
2012 – Heineken Music Hall
The 10th Junior Eurovision Song Contest was held at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam. The Contest was hosted by Ewout Genemans and Kim-Lian van der Meij. Anastasiya Petryk took victory for Ukraine, with “Nebo”, scoring 138 points.
Join us on Thursday, as we visit Glasgow, another Euro 2020 Eurovision Host City.
