The EBU, Ukrainian broadcaster UA: PBC and OGAE have revealed today that a total of 900 ticket packages have gone on sale for OGAE Club members
Fan package tickets for OGAE Clubs are on sale as of today. Each package consists of 6 tickets (3 jury final shows, 3 live shows). The allocations, prices and purchase procedures for these packages will be communicated by fan club OGAE to their respective members.
The 900 packages consist of the following:
- 430 packages for the Golden Circle standing area immediately next to the stage
- 170 packages for the Fan Zone standing area
- 300 packages for seats
100 packages will be reserved exclusively for Ukrainian fans, and will be distributed by OGAE International to members of OGAE Ukraine as well as other local fan organisations.
Ms. Nadja Burkhardt (ESC Event Supervisor) says:
After some negotiations, we are pleased that the EBU has been able to help OGAE, UA:PBC and Concert.UA agree on terms for an allocation of fan packages this year. The EBU strongly values the OGAE community’s contribution to Eurovision year on year, and we are delighted that a resolution could be found for the events in Kyiv.
Mr. Simon Bennett (OGAE International President) says:
I am delighted that we are able to continue the long tradition of allowing OGAE members to receive an allocation of tickets to the live Eurovision shows, and very grateful to both UA:PBC and the EBU for their support. Thousands of our members applied for fan ticket packages and whilst we will not be able to offer all of them tickets, the 900 lucky ones will be thrilled that their patience has paid off. Our members are already preparing their flags and will do their best to create that unique Eurovision atmosphere in the arena in May.
The ESC is very popular and large demand is expected for these packages, hence many fans could experience a delay in the purchase. Therefore the EBU urges all Eurovision fans to be patient, and continue to purchase their tickets using codes provided by the OGAE only, and via the official channel only, Concert.ua, in order to ensure they are purchasing genuine, valid tickets for the event.
The 2017 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 9, 11 and 13 May at the IEC in Kyiv, Ukraine.
