Morocco in the Eurovision Song Contest 1980
The Moroccan broadcaster, Société Nationale de Radiodiffusion et de Télévision (SNRT), made the country's debut in 1980, becoming the first African and Arab country to enter the contest.
After their poor placing in the contest, SNRT announced that they would be withdrawing from the 1981 contest because of a Royal statement from King Hassan II to never return again, and have never returned since.
A rival Moroccan broadcaster to SNRT, 2M TV, has expressed their intention to join the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). Should their application be successful, 2M TV, could potentially return Morocco to the contest.In 2018 Israel announced that they were trying to invite Middle East countries but Morocco were not in the participating countries list on 7 November 2018.
