About Us

Who are ESC United?

Since our humble beginnings as a dedicated Eurovision fan forum and then becoming one of the largest online communities for fans of the contest, ESC United as we know it was created by Matt Friedrichs and Zack Kerr in time for the 2013 contest in Malmö.

Since then, we have gone from strength to strength, and grown as a community-focused website and YouTube channel with an emphasis on passionate yet balanced discussion, analysis and commentary on Europe’s longest-running competition.

2020 will be our eighth live Eurovision Song Contest as ESC United, and we’re working hard to bring #YOU the best coverage yet!
