Merseyside Police to ensure safety during Eurovision in Liverpool
Merseyside Police - Eurovision

“Let’s make this the best Eurovision ever” – Merseyside Police welcomes tens of thousands of Eurovision fans as they arrive in Liverpool for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Ever since the announcement in October last year that Liverpool would be hosting the 67th Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Ukraine, anticipation has been mounting.

This year’s competition is projected to draw in over 160 million TV viewers, along with numerous attendees who will revel in the enormous festivities occurring at various locations throughout the city centre and the wider Merseyside area.

Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Emily Spurrell said:

“There’s a brilliant buzz around the region as Eurovision fast approaches. It’s an amazing honour for Liverpool to host this international celebration of music on behalf of Ukraine and, I have no doubt, we will do them proud.

“It’s set to be a fantastic spectacle with events taking place right across the city and beyond.

“This is the region’s first mega event post-Covid and since the Giants back in 2018 and the scale of it is staggering, with 12 separate concerts and nine days of Eurovillage Fan Zone and Euroclub.

“The eyes of 160million people from across the globe will be on Liverpool and it’s anticipated 50,000 people from 37 countries will visit Liverpool, as well as 1,200 members of the international press.”

She added:

“My focus, and that of Merseyside Police, will be on keeping everyone safe during this nine-day extravaganza.

“Working closely with the BBC, Liverpool City Council, ACC Liverpool, and a host of partners, planning for the event has been underway since Liverpool was declared the host last October.

“Merseyside Police are excellent at supporting events on the biggest scale and their operational preparations are incredibly thorough.

Commissioner Spurrell said:

“Officers and staff, both high-visibility and plain-clothed, will be on hand working to keep you safe 24/7 throughout Eurovision. Through our You’re Safe Here scheme with LCR Pride, we’ve also trained more than 1,000 staff from 120 venues to provide effective support if anyone feels vulnerable or scared for any reason.

“As events get underway, we need your help too. By acting as the police’s eyes and ears, you can play a vital role in keeping everyone safe. Look out for each other, and if you see something that doesn’t feel right, please tell staff or the police.

“Music unites us and, by working together, this can be the best Eurovision ever!”
