According to L’Observateur de Monaco, €100,000 of state budget has been put aside for participation at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. TMC, the Monegasque national broadcaster, is owned by the French national broadcaster TF1. The Monegasque government would have to cooperate with TF1 for participation to be possible.
Monaco participated regularly between 1959 and 1980, with a brief return between 2004 and 2006. Monaco have took victory once, when Séverine performed “Un banc, un arbre, une rue”.
