- BBC Global News’ focus on growth through commercial content partnerships leads to collaboration with Formula E to target new audiences.
 

- Never-been-told stories about all-electric ABB FIA Formula E World Championship to be shared from the perspective of fans around the world.
 

- Online hub to house content showcasing sustainability, technology and inclusivity accelerated by the world class all-electric racing series.




Formula E and BBC Global News have launched a commercial partnership to produce a set of pioneering online films to bring the all-electric motorsport to a new, digital audience around the world. The films will showcase meaningful fan stories from behind the scenes of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
 


Targeting a unique online audience from around the world, the content will tell the story of a newly emerging global sports fan base. It will shine a light on the role Formula E is playing in the global conversation around electric vehicles, the benefits of achieving a net zero carbon footprint, and the importance of inclusivity and ethical principles to the modern sports fan.
 


To showcase never-been-told stories from around the world, fans are encouraged to share their most memorable Formula E experiences by uploading them online. These stories will be developed into original short films which will be housed on a dedicated content hub within the BBC StoryWorks website throughout 2021-22.
 


As part of the project, BBC Global News’ award-winning, proprietary research methods, involving state-of-the-art facial coding technology, will be used to track the audience’s emotional engagement and identify a new community of Formula E fans.





CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF FORMULA E

In working with BBC Global News, we will tell powerful stories through the eyes of a new generation of fans who crave edge-of-seat sporting entertainment, while demanding a strong commitment to make the world a better place."






EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF ADVERTISING FOR BBC GLOBAL NEWS

"The fans are at the heart of any sport and Formula E has a highly engaged and unique global following - much like the BBC. This landmark partnership with Formula E represents a new kind of film production for us and we’re excited to shine a spotlight on Formula E’s passionate supporters by uncovering their remarkable tales and using our unrivalled storytelling skills to share them with the world."
