The city of Sandviken

The member of the city council does admit that it would bring challenges to host the next contest in Sandviken, but that it is worth to look into the matter, because the region and city of Sandviken can use a boost and recognition.

Sandviken has approx. 40,000 people living in, and the city is situated in Gävleborg County.

If the contest would be hosted by the city of Sandviken the arena where the event will take place will be the Göransson Arena, which has hosted one of the Semi-finals of Melodifestivalen before, Sweden’s very popular national final. The Göransson Arena has space for no less than 10,000 spectators.
