Sweden: Malmö Allocates €2.5 Million For Eurovision 2024

As for every year, the host city allocates a budget to make Eurovision happen in its area. Most of the costs are related to operations and logistics related, for example: infrastructure, transportation, accommodations, supporting the Eurovision village and so on.

Based on Aftonbaldet, we can get an estimate for Eurovision 2024 costs

Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh, Malmö’s municipal board chairman, gave an interview to the local readoop and shared:

We organized Eurovision ten years ago, and the calculations that were made then showed approximately SEK 185 million in tourism revenue.
When Malmö hosted ESC 2013, approximately SEK 25 million (2.09 milliom euros) was invested. 
This can be compared with the city of Stockholm, which contributed 100 million kroner (8.4 milliom euros) when the competition was organized there in 2016. At the time, however, half of it, 50 million kroner, was used for arena costs where premises were renovated and, among other things, wireless internet was installed.

The city of Malmö sees this investment as beneficial, since tourism revenue will cover the costs.
Malmö‘s municipal board members were unified regarding the decision of investment.

It is important to mention the Eurovision 2024’s budget will be much higher, as it will be based on multiple sources: SVT (the Swedish broadcaster), EBU, sponsors, and the participating countries (contributing through participation fees).

So far, the following countries have confirmed participation in Eurovision 2024: Sweden, Norway, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Israel, Moldova, Estonia, Austria, Cyprus, Denmark, Spain, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Malta, Serbia, Switzerland, the UK, Azerbaijan, Lithuania, Ukraine, Portugal, San Marino, Belgium, Albania, Latvia, Croatia, Greece, and North Macedonia.
