The 2020 ESC venue, Rotterdam Ahoy, has a capacity of circa 15,000 spectators, but this number will surely shorten as the construction of the stage and Green Room will reduce the capacity of the venue.

The exact number of tickets that will go on sale is yet to be determined as it will depend on how much space the stage and Green Room will occupy and require.

The 2020 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 12, 14 and 16 May at the Rotterdam Ahoy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
