ESC 2017: WILL KIEV'S PALACE OF SPORTS BECOME THE 9TH MULTI HOST?

UPDATE: The annoucement has been postboned to the original date of August 1, 2016.
Over the decades since 1956 we have had 53 different venues hosting the Eurovision song contest, from prestigious old concert halls to imperial palace's concert hall to insignificant TV studios, especially bult arenas to excisting congress centers. So many different venues in size and style that only one thing may be common to them: they all had a roof. (Even if built for the occasion.) Only seven venues have had the honor to host it twice, and one - yes, Ireland again! - three times and even twice in a row. If Kiev's Palace of Sports will be chosen it will be the 9th multi host. We should know next Wednesday.....
1959 + 1961; Palais des Festivals et des Congres - Cannes, France
1962 + 1966: Villa Louvigny - Luxembourg
1973 + 1984: Grand Theatre de la Ville de Luxembourg - Luxembourg
