Despite already initially entering Eurovision Song Contest 2014, BHRT decided not to confirm their participation due to the financial difficulties. The broadcaster couldn’t find sponsors to finance participation, thus, they can’t afford entering the song contest.
Although withdrawing, BHRT won’t have to pay a fine to EBU as the list of participating broadcasters, released in November, was only initial. The final deadline is set for early January when all the broadcasters must confirm participation.
Last time Bosnia & Herzegovina was seen in Eurovision was in 2012 when Maya Sar qualified for the grand final.
