About 25% of the 100,000 tickets for the various Eurovision Song Contest 2015 shows were sold this morning through ORF’s ticketing partner oeticket.com, as well as in the box office located in Wiener Stadthalle, the home for the upcoming contest.
It took only 20 minutes for the Grand Final tickets to be over and many fans have experienced difficulties while trying to log in and purchase tickets online.
Ido, one of our readers who tried his luck in today’s sale, told us about his buying experience:
“By the time we managed to get through to the actual purchasing page (after a long wait) there were no tickets left for the final. We managed to get Category B tickets for both semi finals, but that’s it for now.”
However, it seems that the people who went to the Wiener Stadthalle for buying the tickets, were a bit more luckier. As official website eurovision.tv reports, the first, who secured tickets there was Dominik Berghofer from Vienna: “I’m a big fan and I thought if Conchita wins and the song contest is held in Austria, I am the first in the line!”

The next batch of tickets is expected to be on sale in the end of January 2015, in the series of numerous sale days. Eurovision’s Executive Producer Edgar Böhm remains optimistic and said in an interview to ORF earlier this morning:
“It is important that one does not get feeling that it is now all over. People can consider now also whether they still want to buy a ticket.”
