Host broadcaster of the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, Finland's YLE, will be announcing details of the sale of tickets for the event Monday 20th November. In recent years, there have been severe problems with ticket sales, with websites crashing and many fans not being able to apply through the preposed means.

Finnish broadcaster YLE will be announcing details regarding when and where the tickets will go on sale, the prices of the tickets for the semi-final, final and dress rehearsals, and the total number of tickets to be sold. The announcement will be posted on the YLE Eurovision Song Contest website at 10 am CET on Monday.

Last week, advertisements began appearing on several Eurovision Song Contest websites advertising tickets for the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest. These appear through a system of advertising that we use through Google to help pay towards the running of the website. As soon as we noticed this advertisement, esctoday.com contacted Google and eurovision.tv to make them aware of the problem and contacted all other websites that we noticed the advertisement on.

We immediately asked for the advertisement to be taken offline. This advertisement should not appear again on here. esctoday.com strongly advises readers ONLY to purchase tickets through the official channels, to be announced by YLE on Monday. This advice was today re-iterated by Kjell Ekholm from YLE:

"At the moment, several organisations claim to sell tickets for the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest online. I can only advice everyone NOT to buy from them, simply because there are no tickets on sale yet. I strongly recommend everyone to wait for more information from YLE and the EBU, and to purchase tickets only from the official ticket supplier when available", Ekholm says.
