The sale of tickets for Eurovision-2017 will start before the end of this year. This was announced by Deputy General Director of the National Television Company of Ukraine Oleksandr Kharebin, reports 44.ua.
"We hope that the sale of tickets will start and before the end of the year, but the start date depends a lot on technical solutions that will enable us to quickly understand the ultimate capacity of the hall of the International Exhibition Centre, where the competition will be held. There is no reason to discuss the cost of the ticket, without realizing ticket policy of the operator and hall capacity. Even theoretically the National TV Company does not discuss the cost of something that does not exist yet, "said Kharebin.
For now organizers are looking for ticket operator, according to Oleksandr Kharebin.
"The National Television Company today announced a contest for the ticket operator who will be entitled to become an official partner for ticket sales for Eurovision 2017. The winner company that meets the qualification requirements, including safe system of online booking, the experience of concert sales of this level, financial stability, ability to work with European partners, will gain the right to decide tickets prices together with National TV Company. The prices will be announced to the Ukrainian market before the end of December 2016, "he noted.
Earlier it was reported that Kyiv expects about 20 thousand guests on Eurovision 2017. In general, government expects about 1.3 million tourists next year.
