If you live in a country which cannot access PayPal, please email us and we can arrange an alternative method of payment for your membership.
Euphoria members are eligible to apply for the club’s ticket list to attend the contest. They are also eligible to make contributions to the club to earn ticketing points. Euphoria members are eligible to vote on club matters including Board elections. Euphoria members are entitled to vote in the various contests held by OGAE each year, details of which are announced on this website. Euphoria membership gives the right to hold an OGAE Member card, which provides access to some of the events and venues in the host city during the period of the contest, and discounts at the eurovision.tv online shop. Please note, holding a Euphoria membership makes OGAE RoW your ‘primary’ club. Under OGAE International rules a member can have only one primary club. If you are a primary member of another club, you are welcome to consider Molitva membership below. Euphoria membership costs GBP8 in the first year and annual renewals cost GBP4.
Molitva members are fans of Eurovision who have already selected another OGAE club as their ‘primary club’ and want to have Rest of the World as their ‘secondary club’. Molitva members will already have an OGAE card from their primary club and are not entitled to a card from Rest of the World. Molitva members are only entitled to tickets for the Eurovision Song Contest through their primary club – not through Rest of the World. Molitva members are not entitled to vote in Rest of the World elections or changes to the Constitution. Nor are they entitled to vote as a Rest of the World member in the various contests held by OGAE each year. All voting will be done under their primary club membership. Molitva membership costs GBP4.
Satellite (unpaid) members are fans of Eurovision who enjoy being in contact with other fans but do not have any plans to attend the contest. For this reason, Satellite members do not need to apply for an OGAE Member card. Satellite members are entitled to vote in the various contests held by OGAE each year, details of which are announced on this website. Satellite membership is not open to residents of Australia, the United States, Canada, New Zealand or South Africa or to residents of European countries that already have an OGAE fan club.

Does paid (‘Euphoria’) membership guarantee a ticket to Eurovision?
Unfortunately, no. Depending on factors such as the size of the auditorium, the allocation of tickets across the entire OGAE Fan Club network, the popularity of the host city as a destination, and the number of tickets assigned to OGAE International by the host broadcaster, in some years demand is likely to exceed supply.
Can I belong to more than one OGAE club?
Yes, you can join more than one OGAE club. However, you must decide which will be your ‘primary club’ and which will be your ‘secondary club’. You may only hold a OGAE card and apply for ticket list/ballot at your primary club. If you choose Rest of the World as your secondary club, you must join as a Molitva member. See above for Molitva membership details.
