But Moscow and Oslo have set the trend for bigger arenas for the song contest. The Eurovision started off in thetres from the 50's to the 70's and then started to use convention centers in the 80's and early 90's, which was followed by indoor arenas in recent contests

Also for the last few years each country has being trying to top the last and Germany will want to put on a spectacular show, so I wouldn't rule the Vetlins Arena out straight away.

Veltins Arena would be great, but the city isn't! I love my hometown (Gelsenkirchen), but it is not worth to host such an event.
A huge arena with a convertible roof + a fantastic city would be Düsseldorf!

I would be happy to see Veltins or Esprit Arena hosting the ESC but that will also mean that you guys will brake Denmarks record from 2001 with 38.000 people in Parken Stadium for that years final.

Your probably right. Hannover is the city that seems to be on the news in realation to the ESC the past few days, but Germany is such a huge country that the ESC could be in any of 10 or so cities at this stage.

Wait a minute. The LTU Arena has a retractable roofand it's in Dusseldorf. Would that not be perfect?

Can the centrally suspended scoreboard be raised and lowered?

If so, can it be raised all the way to the ceiling? If not, would it hamper the top tier's view?

Does anyone know for sure?

No centrally hung scoreboard/video cube in the world obstructs views to a stand, all are high enough (even the monster in Dallas) to allow for clear views across the field. The only real concern with that type of display is in American Football, where punts could hit a board not set high enough.

But can the centrally hung video scoreboard for this stadium be raised and lowered?

I know that the enormous one in Cowboys Stadium can be raised and lowered. So I was wondering if the one in Gelsenkirchen and Frankurt could as well.

They can, but other than working on them, they don't really have a reason to because it doesn't bother anyone, you can see the goals from both ends.

How deep was the snow in the area?

It's not as if snow in Germany in the winter is a freak event, so I'd imagine/hope the amount was more than the roof was designed for.

It's been a relatively cold and snowy winter in western Germany, as a matter of fact we've had the "whitest" X-mas since records began. Still, this stuff really shouldn't happen.
