The Miss World organization held a press conference in Puerto Rico. Many announcemens were made.
A new venue and a new TV station
With that being said, the Miss World 2021 pageant has been moved to a larger venue – the Puerto Rico Coliseum Jose Miguel Agrelot also known as the Choliseo and a new TV station, TeleOnce Puerto Rico (Channel 11) has been chosen to air live the three-hour event.
Originally, the newly inaugurated Coca-Cola Music Hall in San Juan was announced as the event venue, however due to an overwhelming volume of interest shown by international pageant fans to buy tickets, a larger more spacious location was needed.
Furthermore, the Choliseo is an ideal venue in case the Miss World organization needs to consider a limited audience and social distancing due to COVID-19 safety precautions.
Upon arrival, all contestants will be quarantined and frequent testing will be done leading up to the final event along with mask use and social distancing.
Also, an agreement was signed with TeleOnce to become the official channel in Puerto Rico to broadcast live the Miss World 2021 Final. As part of the agreement, TeleOnce will air several special programs leading up to the pageant’s final night.
“We are happy and proud of the partnership between TeleOnce and the Miss World organization.
It’s an honor to be the official channel of this pageant due to its trajectory and transcendence, said Lenard Liberman, president of TeleOnce. “There are lots of plans in agenda for the upcoming months with this world-class project. We will be creating new concepts for the enjoyment of our audience not only through television but social media platforms too. We want the public to get to know the candidates of each country and that we achieve a successful interaction.”
Ticket sale for Miss World 2021 will be sold from September 17th.
