Two cities left in Eurovision 2017 host city race
Eric Nocito | On 25, Aug 2016
After the host city selection was delayed from multiple times in the last month, one city has had enough and dropped out of the race: Dnipro.
Frustrated with the postponements, Mayor of Dnipro, Boris Filatov, announced that the city will no longer be participating in the host city selection. This was confirmed by NTU Director General, Zurab Alasania.
Today, for the fourth time, the announcement of the host city was delayed. Originally, the announcement was to be made July 27. Then August 1. Then to August 24. And finally August 25.
A press conference was quickly cancelled today out of nowhere, minutes before start, leading to the fourth delay.
No news of when the actual announcement will be made.
Odesa and Kyiv are the two cities left competing to host Eurovision 2017 in Ukraine.
