Eurovision 2013 tickets go on sale November 26
On Monday, 26th of November at 10:00 CET the first tickets for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest were put on sale. In addition to regular tickets, the fans have their own ticket quota, and this year they will be allocated tickets on the venue floor. The tickets for the Final were sold out in 22 minutes.
"We are pleased to be able to release tickets to this giant party before Christmas. Since the cheapest tickets don't cost more than 10 Euros, we give as many as possible the opportunity to be a part of this treat in Malmö," Martin Österdahl, Executive Producer for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest says.
Tickets will be offered to nine shows: two Dress Rehearsals for each Semi-Final and the Grand Final, plus three live broadcasts. They will cost between 10-216 euros.
"You can choose between the rehearsal where the jury groups take their decision, the family show in the afternoon, or the live broadcast at night. We believe that there will be tickets for every budget," Österdahl explains.

Special option for fans
There will also be an exclusive period for members of fan clubs to purchase tickets in the fan sector on the floor in the Malmö Arena.
"The fans create the party. They are a big part of the show, and we want them to rule the floor in the Malmö Arena. And to make the fans come closer to the stage, we've taken away the chairs to ensure that the fans will become an even bigger part of the broadcast. The fans' enthusiasm and commitment are a very important part of the feeling in the venue and for the TV broadcast," the Executive Producer adds.
The fans will have exclusive access to tickets on the venue floor for one week, 26th of November to the 3rd of December. After that, the tickets on the venue floor will be open for sale for the general public.
Each fan can buy a package of six tickets for the evening Dress Rehearsals of each show and for all the live shows.
SVT have decided to add one zone for fans wanting to sit down during the dress rehearsals and live broadcasts that are included in the fan packages.
