Update: Tickets Eurovision 2011 Final sold out!
The Düsseldorf Arena
Düsseldorf, Germany -

UPDATE 17:32 CET: The 32,000 available tickets for the Final of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest are now SOLD OUT. In the weeks to come, a few thousand tickets more will become available, after it has become known how many countries will participate and camera positions have been determined. Stay tuned for announcements in due time!

The tickets went for sale on the website Dticket.de. This website is the only authorised reseller of tickets for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest. Host Broadcaster NDR and the EBU cannot guarantee authenticity of access for tickets purchased elsewhere.

UPDATE 13:20 CET: An important message to those who are buying tickets to the Final! Due to extremely high demand and despite the large capacity, there is a limit to the amount of traffic the platform can handle per hour, so keep trying! Tickets are available for German ánd foreign fans. Buy through Dticket.de, the *only* official ticket partner! There are *no* other ticket partners, so be careful of scams!

UPDATE 15:25 CET: Thomas Schreiber, Head of Entertainment at Host Broadcaster NDR, said to Eurovision.tv: "To spread out the peak traffic, we decided to offer the readers of Eurovision.de to buy tickets before noon. However, this was limited to an amount of 4,000 tickets. At the same time, a significant amount of front section tickets has been reserved for the international fan clubs, and several thousands more will go on sale at a later stage, when we know the exact camera positions and the number of participating countries." NDR decided to give MyEurovision subscribers the opportunity to be informed in advance when these tickets go on sale, similar to the way the mailing list members of Eurovision.de have been pre-informed earlier today. More information will be communicated in due time. Note that tickets for the Final are still available!

UPDATE 15:35 CET: Meanwhile, we can also announce that tickets for the Jury Final will go on sale this Wednesday. The Jury Final is the second Dress Rehearsal on Friday, 13th of May, based on which the juries in all participating countries will cast their points. Juries have a 50% stake in the outcome. Tickets for the Semi-Finals and Semi-Final Dress Rehearsals will go on sale in mid-January.

    Another discussion: Would you buy tickets on the internet (at ebay or from other offerers). I thought it's forbidden but there are so many tickets online! It's amazing! How does the organiser wants to work against it? I mean, does he want to work against every single offerer? How should this work? And what abput the people who buy all those tickets? Won't they be able to come into Espritarena? report to the moderator

    how could they avoid the conflicting date?
    21st May was not possible because of the German Football Cup Final, they have TV contracts and a primetime Final is part of the contract.
    28th May was not possible because of the UEFA Champions League Final
    move the fair to another Date - i guess not that easy

    the best way to avoid the conflicting date would have been another city, but like i said, other city = less tickets.
    So we have to deal with Düsseldorf and should be happy about the large ammount of Tickets.

    i just hope the chaotic ticket sell isn´t the way Düsseldorf and Germany continues.
    would be ashamed about my homecountry if the ESC become a total mess report to the moderator

    we are not moaning, we are not complaining, we are critizing!!!
    we are not comparing Berlin, Hamburg or Düsseldorf. We just believed that Germany can do it far better!
    The ticket selling, or the conflicted eurovison date, all these are supposed to be able to avoid. Germany has hosted WM, World Olypics sucessfully. You can do much better than what you are doing for Eurovision.
    At the end, there will be always a solution. People will still be singing and dancing as scheduled. But whether the solution is good or bad, people will judge. report to the moderator

    what would be better then Düsseldorf?
    Berlin ?
    less then 15.000 tickets if they had choosen Berlin, same for Hamburg.
    i can imagen how everyone would say "how can such a big country like Germany choose such a small venue"
    the people who got tickets will find a place to stay

    i got tickets, and either i will get a Hotel room in the near Area like Mönchengladbach, or i will drive home right after the show. report to the moderator

    Angry Ray, you are totally correct. Why put ESC in a city with another big event ? Hotel rooms are ridicuously expensive. Sunday was an absolute mess, overall Germany has not got off to a good start. report to the moderator

    It is definitely a shame for Germany to organize such an event so bad!!!
    Even the peole who got tickets are not satisfied with it, not mentioned to the people who spent hours in getting a ticket.
    There are so many other means and ways to do it much better!!!
    I really cannot believe this could happen in Germany!!! I thought it was a much organized and civilized country! report to the moderator

    Don't think it will be easy to get a hotel room easily in Düsseldorf.
    There is a big exhibition on the same weekend as Eurovision.
    Most hotels have been fully booked. And the rest hotels are extremely pricy. If you have enough money, it would be another story.
    cannot image why Germans organize it in such a bad way! report to the moderator

    Same here, my payment is out of my creditcard account. My creditcard provider told me that they are waiting for D Ticket to confirm the payment. Since my reservation on sunday (afther 4hrs of trying every 5 minutes) I was finaly ably the reach the website. On monday I called D Tickets Hotline, without any dessent information. Today I called again, now they will check my booking and they promised me a confirmation before friday. What a mess and if this is Deutsche Gründlichkeit ??? Should EBU react?? report to the moderator

    Just to say to those that haven't received your confirmation email - you should check your spam account - I thought I hadn't received mine either but that's where I found it! All sorted now! report to the moderator

    From 12.00 till 17:00 I WASN´T EVEN able to acceed the TICKET SHOP online to buy my tickets to the final!

    I'm exactly as tanita, I don't know if I got tickets for the final so I don't know if I should get one for the dress rehearsal :S report to the moderator
