ESCFAN provides both a summary of the public ticket process and how to secure your ESCFAN tickets through the OGAE Ballot process.
How is Eurovision ticketing normally determined?
This will occur after some decisions are made regarding the staging – this is so the host broadcaster can best determine how much availability there is and then the cost of such tickets.
There are usually two methods to purchasing tickets – through the public sale and through the fanclubs.
Ticket resellers change every year due to the change of location and broadcaster organising the event.
Public sales are always announced via the official Eurovision website – www.eurovision.tv – usually in November/December.
For 2018, the ticket sales are through blueticket.pt – tickets for the Grand Final are indicating as sold out, however there is some availability remaining for dress rehearsals and semi finals.
The 2018 Portugal ticket ballot for our club (OGAE) is now closed.
All information is on our page – http://ogaeaustralia.com/ticketing-2018/
In order to qualify for future ballots, you must be a financial AND primary member of ESCFAN by mid-September and then advise us that you wish to be on the ballot the end of September.
The 2018 ballot was drawn in October 2017 for placements, and then sold to successful members in November 2017.
