Germany is a key market for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and it is imperative we remain free-to-air, to ensure our fans can keep up with the fastest-moving series in motorsport.’

Lead­ing Ger­man free-to-air broad­cast­ers — ARD and ZDF — have expand­ed their exist­ing part­ner­ships with the ABB FIA For­mu­la E Cham­pi­onship, show­ing more live races in sea­son five across their net­works.

With the start of the new sea­son only days away, fans across Ger­many will now have greater access and live view­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties — with ZDF pro­vid­ing cov­er­age of the Rome E-Prix and ARD air­ing both the Mona­co E-Prix and BMW i Berlin E-Prix pre­sent­ed by CBMM Nio­bi­um.

The new part­ner­ship — bro­kered by pan-Euro­pean media rights dis­trib­u­tors Eurosport — will see ARD and ZDF cov­er more rounds of the ABB FIA For­mu­la E Cham­pi­onship live on both chan­nels, with the remain­ing races streamed live across online plat­forms.

Ali Rus­sell, Media & Busi­ness Devel­op­ment Direc­tor at For­mu­la E, said: “Ger­many is a key mar­ket for the ABB FIA For­mu­la E Cham­pi­onship and it’s imper­a­tive we remain free-to-air, to ensure our fans can keep up with the fastest-mov­ing series in motor­sport. As we con­tin­ue on our mis­sion to bring For­mu­la E to the mass­es, it’s fan­tas­tic that two of the largest Euro­pean pub­lic chan­nels — ARD and ZDF — are increas­ing their cov­er­age and show­ing con­tin­ued sup­port of the elec­tric street rac­ing series. We’re grate­ful to Eurosport & SportA for their con­tri­bu­tion to this agree­ment.”
