During his visit to Kiev, Eurovision Song Contest supervisor Svante Stockselius gave more information about the ticket sale. Aleksandr Savenko, president of the Ukrainian national broadcaster NTCU, announced significant changes concerning journalists and accreditations.
It is up to the organising broadcaster NTCU (National Television Company of Ukraine) to set the price of the tickets for the 50th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. The rules of the European Broadcasting Union say that, “the tickets must be sold at a reasonable price for the hosting country.”
President of NTCU, Aleksandr Savenko, has already announced that the journalists will have to buy a ticket to see the Eurovision Song Contest or the dress rehearsals. However, special discounts and invitations for journalists are envisaged. In no case will an accreditation be enough to get entrance to the concert hall.
