Next week, Finnish broadcaster YLE will officially announce the venue, and thus the host city, of the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest. YLE representatives stated that only venues with a capacity for more than 10,000 spectators are being taken into consideration. The brand new website escfinland.eu reported that.

Ville Vilén, one of the project leaders of the upcoming contest, made a clear statement for the cameras of YLE News, saying that the current technology is asking for a venue with a capacity of more than 10,000 viewers. This means that only the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki and the Elysée Areena in Turku would still be in the running.

According to Vilén, a final decision will be taken and announced by next week, at the time of the national Midsummer holidays.
