Hong Kong ePrix extends with title sponsor

Telecommunications provider HKT has renewed its title sponsorship of the Hong Kong leg of the Formula E electric car-racing series.

The new deal will cover the 2017 edition of the Hong Kong ePrix, which takes place on December 2-3 and marks the opening race of the 2017-18 season.

The partnership was signed by HKT and Formula Electric Racing Hong Kong Limited, the organiser of the ePrix.

As part of the agreement, HKT will continue to support the event through its fibre broadband network, public Wi-Fi service and point-to-point global television network, which will help deliver live international broadcasts of the race.

HKT will also have a booth at the free-to-access E-Village, which will feature interactive games, activities and a live race broadcast. In addition, members of The Club, HKT’s unified loyalty and rewards programme, will be eligible for exclusive ticket redemption offers surrounding the event.

HKT first became title sponsor of the Hong Kong ePrix in March 2016.
