“We do not have any problems with the choice of the venue and consider different options, but the final decision will be taken by the steering committee”, he said.

It seems likely that one of those options is the Baku Crystal Hall, which is under construction at the moment at the National Flag Square of the Azerbaijani capital. The venue is being constructed by German company Alpine and is expected to accomodate up to 25,000 spectators. You can learn more about it here.
