Another spin, another round. After an overwhelming result in Tel Aviv, Switzerland enters the race to Rotterdam with renewed optimism. Swiss public broadcaster SRF announced today the closing of the submission window. The 2020 campaign is ready to take off.
Zurich has spoken. SRF tweeted today the result of the submission period to represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest next May in the Netherlands. No less than 515 entries were sent to the broadcaster.

As announced by ESCtoday in July, the selection process will be the same as last year for the landlocked country. The act that will represent Switzerland in Rotterdam will be chosen 50/50 between a professional jury and a 100-member public panel.
