PORTUGAL – RTP Head of delegation, Mrs Carla Bugalho, has stated in a press conference that the objective of RTP in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 “is to reach the best score ever for Portugal in this contest”.
The statement was made during a press conference organized in Lisbon, near the City Hall, with the presence of the composer Luísa Sobral and the singer and Portuguese representative in Kiev, Salvador Sobral.
Mrs Bugalho wishes to win the contest. “We have several facilities in Portugal and our broadcaster has big experience in organizing huge national and international events”.
She gave the example of Euro 2004 football championship. “13 years ago, with less equipment and resources, we made big broadcasts from 10 stadiums and 31 matches”. But, on the other hand, “first we need to win the Eurovision Song Contest to have the chance to host it in Lisbon”.
