ELEVEN AND EXTREME E PARTNER FOR SEASON 2
ELEVEN and Extreme E will continue their broadcast collaboration to bring the pioneering off-road electric race series to motorsports fans in multiple markets in 2022.
ELEVEN has secured the rights to Extreme E’s live race coverage - as well as its behind-the-scenes magazine programme, preview, and review shows - for its global streaming platform ElevenSports.com and locally for ELEVEN Belgium, ELEVEN Portugal and ELEVEN Taiwan.
ElevenSports.com streams thousands of hours of live sport, reaching millions of fans annually. It will deliver Extreme E to viewers in over 140 countries globally, on a non-exclusive basis. For Season 2, the partnership has expanded to Poland.
ELEVEN subscribers in Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal and Taiwan will be able to follow all the latest action from the Extreme E championship via their local OTT and linear channels.
Ali Russell, Chief Marketing Officer at Extreme E, said: “We are delighted to have extended our global agreement with ELEVEN. Our first season was a huge success, marking a new era of racing that highlights the importance of sustainability and the benefits of electrification, while shining the spotlight on the climate crisis with the storytelling around the championship.”
Guillaume Collard, ELEVEN Group Chief Rights Acquisitions & Distribution Officer & ELEVEN Belgium & Luxembourg MD, added: “Extreme E has already proved to be a fantastic competition for our audiences around the world. With great races and a vital climate change message at the heart of the competition, we want to continue to partner with Ali and his team to champion Extreme E to motorsports fans everywhere.”
