    Ziggo will make the Ziggo Sport broadcast of the Dutch F1 Grand Prix in Zandvoort available nationwide, at no extra cost. This means that even households without a Ziggo subscription can witness the entire race weekend at home. Also in the years following 2020, Ziggo will offer the Formula 1 race weekend in Zandvoort for free to all Dutch households with a TV.

    Dutch supporters are a dominant factor in Formula 1 racing. The entire country follows the performance of Max Verstappen and is proud to boast its own Formula 1 Grand Prix again after so many years. Not to mention the many Formula 1 Grand Prix trips and orange stands during the various European Grand Prix races. Ziggo wants to contribute towards this by enabling the entire Netherlands to enjoy the national race show of Zandvoort.

    Will Moerer, director at Ziggo Sport: "The popularity of Formula 1 in the Netherlands is greater than ever. This is proven by record audiences for Ziggo Sport and Ziggo Sport Totaal on television and through the ZiggoGo app. With the return of the Grand Prix to Zandvoort, the world of F1 is coming even closer. The whole country is already following F1 en masse, which is why we want to broadcast the F1 Dutch GP race weekend at Zandvoort nationwide, at no cost. After all, such a unique Dutch event should be enjoyed by everyone.’"

    Ziggo Sport is the proud owner of the Formula 1 broadcasting rights in the Netherlands and is thé place to be for Formula 1 fans. Thanks to the popularity of Max Verstappen, Formula 1 Café was introduced on the Friday night two years ago, marking the start of a true ‘race weekend’ on Ziggo Sport. After the popular Ziggo eBattle F1 and the Ziggo F1 Live Broadcast of the Austrian Grand Prix in the Ziggo Dome on 30 June (some tickets still available), the free nationwide broadcast of the Dutch Grand Prix in Zandvoort is the next initiative by Ziggo with regard to Formula 1 racing
