The first ever ICON Cover Competition will take place in Jyilzyem, Republic of Aenderia, because the ICON Cover Competition was formed in the Republic of Aenderia and their official offices are located in Jyilzyem and Noyan.

The official contest will be conducted online with the online venue being "Vega Stadium" in Jyilzyem. The event will be broadcast live on the official ICON Cover Competition YouTube channel.

Host Swap

Kaion originally won the ICON Cover Competition 2018, but after selecting a host city, Kaion, later Slavistonia, now defunct, conceded as the host of ICON Cover Competition for 2019. The host was given to Fyrinia, one of the two runner-ups, after Aenderia, now the Fifth Aenderian Republic refused to host twice in a row.

On August 17, 2019, Fyrinia announced the host city as Kirilmaz and the official venue for the event will be Tumaini Hall, Kirilmaz. However the host city and venue is most likely to change as Fyrinia is undergoing reforms.
