Tickets for the sold-out Eurovision Grand Final will be announced in the Red Nose Day draw
Two tickets for the sold-out Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest will be raffled off as part of a Red Nose Day raffle.
The week-long Liverpool Calling prize draw was announced by Zoe Ball on her BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show on Monday.
In addition to their tickets, a winner will also enjoy a meet-and-greet with Rylan and Scott Mills, as well as travel and an overnight stay at a top hotel in the host city of Liverpool.
The money from the raffle will be used ahead of Friday’s Red Nose Day to help people struggling with the cost of living crisis and to address other issues such as homelessness, mental health and food poverty.
Samir Patel, CEO of Comic Relief, said: “We are delighted to offer our supporters a chance to win tickets to the highly anticipated, sold-out Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final, which will no doubt be an unforgettable evening full of surprises. ”
Tickets for the Eurovision Grand Final sold out in less than 40 minutes after their release last week.
Fans faced technical issues as Ticketmaster’s website struggled with the number of people trying to secure tickets for the nine different live shows.
The dedicated website appeared to crash just before the tickets became available, with the problems persisting throughout the sale.
At 12:36 p.m., the official Eurovision account tweeted that all tickets for the grand finale were sold out and tickets for the remaining shows were gone at 1:32 p.m.
The international singing competition takes place later this year at the 11,000 capacity Liverpool Arena and culminates in the grand finale on 13 May.
Around 3,000 subsidized tickets will be made available to UK-based Ukrainian refugees who fled their homeland after it was occupied by Russian troops last year.
Ukrainian folk-rap group Kalush Orchestra were crowned winners of last year’s competition in Turin, Italy.
Organized by UK charity Comic Relief, Red Nose Day has been held annually since 1988 and raised more than £42million last year.
