The coverage begins this Friday (2 June) with a bespoke programme, Grand Prix ERC SEAJETS Acropolis Rally, which captures the essence of the iconic event through behind-the-scenes footage, updates and interviews by COSMOTE SPORT’s onsite reporter.

On Saturday 3 June and Sunday 4 June, COSMOTE SPORT 5HD will broadcast daily highlights of the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally, plus news feeds throughout the event and live result updates and coverage of the podium on Sunday.

Following the rally, COSMOTE SPORT 5HD will broadcast the ERC All Access magazine programme, while on Sunday 11 June during its Grand Prix Show programme ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix, COSMOTE SPORT 5HD will broadcast extended highlights of the rally, including exclusive interviews and other material.

Jean-Baptiste Ley, the ERC Co-ordinator, said: “The SEAJETS Acropolis Rally is one of the most famous and long-standing events on the international calendar. We’re delighted that it is once again part of the ERC schedule and equally pleased that Eurosport Events has reached an agreement with COSMOTE SPORT to show extensive highlights of the event in its host country. We have no doubt that COSMOTE SPORT viewers will enjoy Europe’s premier rally series.”
