Following Loreen's victory in Baku, the Eurovision circus is preparing to head back to Sweden for the first time since 2000. A surge in flight and hotel enquiries was reported within 24 hours of Sweden winning the trophy, with many predicting a larger than usual influx of fans to the host city.

Sveriges Television (SVT), the broadcaster responsible for producing the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, has already held the first producition meeting and the ball is well and truly rolling. Martin Österdahl has been named as the executive producer and we are excitedly anticipating the announcement of the host city and the venue.

There are a number of possibilities regarding the host city, there is the obvious choice of Sweden's capital city Stockholm but the second and third cities - Gothenburg and Malmö respectively - are still in the running to host. All three cities have already played host to previous editions of the contest.

Stockholm is seen as e front-runner and as a capital city, it has the infrastructure to accomodate the thousands of fans and participating delegations that are expected to travel to Sweden. Stockholm has been a Eurovision host city twice, in 1975 and 2000. The main problem to Stockholm's bid would be the use of an appropriate venue. The Ericsson Globe (Globen), the arena used for the 2000 contest is already booked for the World Ice Hockey Championships, which coincide with the proposed dates for the 2013 contest. The other option for Stockholm would be the yet to be completed Friends Arena in Solna, just outside the city. This arena, upon completion is said to be capable of a capacity of more than 67,000 for concerts. Would this fit in to the EBU's vision of contests becoming smaller from 2013 onwards?

Gothenburg is also being proposed as a host city. The city has played host previously. The Scandinavium housed the 1985 contest and is being touted as a potential venue for 2013. The arena holds up to 14,000 for music events and has hosted a Melodifestivalen semi final each year since 2003. This type of venue would suit the EBU's proposal of a smaller contest with the capacity being considerably smaller than the Baku and Düsseldorf contests.

Another option for SVT would be Sweden's third city, Malmö. This city has also been a Eurovision host. The Malmö Isstadion accomodated the 1992 contest but this arena has since been replaced by the state-of-the-art Malmö Arena which has a capacity of 15,500 and has also housed the Malmö semi finals of Melodifestivalen since 2009. The city, although smaller than Stockholm and Gothenburg would be considered an option due to its close proximity to Copenhagen in Denmark which could support with transport and accomodation.

During the last week, there has been speculation that SVT could be contemplating a three-city Eurovision. Swedish tabloid Expressen reported that the semi finals of the 2013 contest could be held in Gothenburg and Malmö with the grand final in Stockholm. This model would be an expensive option with the contest having to tour a large country and it is yet to be seen whether the EBU would allow this as it is the complete opposite to what was said by them at the press conference in Baku regarding them envisaging the contest period to be shorter and cost less.

Will Sweden attempt to revolutionise the Eurovision Song Contest? Only time will tell as we eagerly await SVT's plans for the Eurovision Song Contest 2013.
