Azerbaijan’s president Ilham Aliyev, and the first lady Mehriban Aliyeva, visited the construction site of the Baku Crystal Hall today. The president is very happy with the construction progress thus far and expects a great show in May.
OGAE Azerbaijan announced in their website that the main contractor for the Baku Crystal Hall is the German construction company “Apline Bau Deutschland AG”. They also cited that the arena will seat 23,000 people, but in case the arena will hold the Eurovision Song Contest, the capacity will be increased to 25,000 people.
Even though the Baku Crystal Arena remains the favorite place to hold Eurovision, the countries’ national broadcaster İctimai TV, nor the Eurovision Broadcasting Union have made any statement yet on the subject.
