#JESC22: A Potential Increased Limit To The Number Of Participating Countries

Following on from the EBU PRESS CONFERENCE in Paris, during the 2021 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Martin Österdahl hinted at the potential to increase the limit of participating countries able to take part at the Contest. Martin Österdahl had the following to say:

“They (the EBU) will have no problem extending the current limit of participation.”

Up until 2018, the limit of participating countries was set at 18, but was increased to 20 for that year’s Contest in Minsk, when Kazakhstan and Wales made their debut. Iceland sent an observing delegation to Paris, as did Norway – so there is a potential of two additional participating countries in 2022, as well as the potential return of the United Kingdom in 2023.
