Turin submits Eurovision 2022 first host city bid with Pala Alpitour arena. 

On 9 July mayor Chiara Appendino revealed in her post on Facebook that she’d signed and submitted the city’s application to become Eurovision 2022 host city:

Yesterday I signet the application letter.

We’re talking about the world’s most followed non-sporting event. With hundreds of millions of viewers, world visibility of our Turin and unquestionable economic fallout.

With the extraordinary victory of the Måneskin at the last Eurovision, Italy is hosting the next edition. We’re running because our City has all the cards in order and we think it’s the best option on the field to make your choice. We have spaces with suitable capabilities, in full city territory and easily reachable.

As for hospitality, our receptive offer is able to welcome the thousands of people the event will attract.But – among others – there is another fundamental point that should lead to choosing Turin: we’ll already be a proven international dating stage that we’ve brought here over the years, able to put the skills of an entire city at the service of Eurovision.

Not only that. Also thanks to these events Turin has recently become Ryanair hub, guaranteeing even more air links between Turin and the rest of the world.We are ready and determined.

As always, we’ll try hard to bring Eurovision to Turin and leave this legacy to the citizens. Good luck, Turin.

The venue was built in 2006 to host Winter Olympic Games and has a maximum capacity of 16,600 people. It usually hosts big concerts for Italian and international stars. And now it hopes to host the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.

What do you think is Turin suitable for Eurovision? Do you see yourself on this arena in May 2022?
