#EURO2020: Eurovision Host City Glasgow

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 Glasgow, where Hampden Park is hosting some matches.

2008 – SECC

The 2nd Eurovision Dance Contest was held at the SECC in Glasgow. The Contest was hosted by Graham Norton and Claudia Winkleman. Edyta Herbuś and Marcin Mroczek took victory for Poland, with the Rumba, Cha-Cha & Jazz, scoring 154 points.
