Virgin Media customers in Ireland will be able to watch every race of the new ABB FIA Formula E Championship season when it kicks off in December this year.
Virgin Media Television will show all races from the fifth season of the all-electric series. Fans will be able to follow all the action live on Virgin Media Sport – the exclusive new sports channel for Virgin Media Ireland customers – as well as watching in-depth highlights across the free-to-air channels.
“I’m extremely pleased to continue showing the jubilance and jeopardy of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship to fans in Ireland with Virgin Media Television,” Ali Russell, media and business development director at Formula E, said. “Ahead of season five and the introduction of the new cars, new drivers and a new race format – we’ll once again be bringing live action and highlights from each E-Prix on the new Virgin Media Sport channel and across the recently rebranded free-to-air platforms.”
Kieran Holden, head of sport at Virgin Media Television, added: “We’re delighted to extend our relationship with the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, which has gone from strength to strength in recent years. This is another real treat for Virgin Media Sport viewers who’ll be able to enjoy extensive live coverage from every Formula E race weekend.”
