Jon Ola Sand, the EBU’s Head of Live Events said; "The EBU are delighted to announce that GPB will be the host broadcaster of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017. As Georgia has won the contest the most times we are pleased that we can finally bring Europe’s favourite youth show to a new country that has shown such dedication to the Contest. Last year’s competition showed that Junior Eurovision Song Contest is an invaluable platform for public service broadcasters to support their young talent, and we have full confidence that GPB will host another great show this November".
Georgia has won the Contest, which began in 2003, a record three times but this is the first time that the event will be held in the country. Further details concerning dates, venue, tickets and accreditation for the 2017 edition of the competition will be announced in the coming months.
