The capital of Ukraine hosted three Eurovision events before; the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2009 and 2012. In 2012, the city's newly renovated Olimpiyskiy Stadium hosted the final of the EURO2012 football tournament.
The Ukrainian capital previously hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 as well as the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2009 and 2013. The city plans to host the 2017 contest at the International Exhibition Centre, the largest venue of its kind in Ukraine with capacity for 11,000 spectators.
Dnipro is situated nearly 400 kilometres southeast from Kyiv. Compared to the capital, Dnipro is a relatively young city, founded in 1776.
The city of Dnipro proposes to host the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in the EuroArena, which is currently under construction and could fit up to 9,500 spectators, as well as the Press Centre and the EuroClub.
In a bold move, Odesa proposes the Chornomorets Stadium, which has a capacity of some 10,000 spectators, as venue for the contest. The building would need to be upgraded with a roof, which the city is prepared to construct in time before the contest.
