Acropolis Rally Greece secures WRC contract extension

The Acropolis Rally Greece will stay on the WRC calendar until at least 2025 after the event promoter secured a two-year contract extension with the WRC Promoter.

The Rally of Gods returned to the WRC in 2021 after an eight-year-long absence. This year, the rally will run for the third consecutive year and today the promotor, backed by the Greek Government, has secured a deal for two more editions of the Acropolis Rally in 2024 and 2025.

“This agreement secures Greece’s place in the FIA World Rally Championship for the next two years and protects the future of what is undeniably one of the most famous rallies in the world,” said WRC Promoter event director Simon Larkin.

“The Acropolis has a rich heritage in WRC, plus some of the most passionate fans around – evidenced by the 65,000 who turned out in the Athens Olympic Stadium last year. We look forward to continuing that legacy in Greece over the coming seasons.”

Alongside announcing a two-year contract extension, it was also confirmed that Lamia will continue to be the host city for this year’s rally.
