The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reports today that the first wave of ticket sale to Eurovision Song Contest 2016 is set to begin on this Thursday, 26 November at 10:00 CET. The details were confirmed by the Swedish broadcaster SVT and the EBU.

“It is great that there are tickets starting at 100 SEK, so many more people will have the possibility to watch the show in the arena”, says Martin Österdahl, the Executive Producer of Eurovision 2016.
The date was chosen as the Swedish people are already doing their Christmas gift shopping as well as the most have already received their salary for November. “Those who will grab the tickets now will have a special christmas gift – and hopefully a memory for life”, adds Österdahl.
Not all tickets will be put on sale this time and more tickets will go on sale in early 2016.
