The FIA World Motor Sport Council has ratified a 12-city, 14-race schedule for the 2019/20 Formula E Championship season, the busiest in the all-electric series’ history.

“The 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship looks like it will be the closest and most competitive season we’ve ever had in our short history – in terms of manufacturers competing, thanks to Mercedes-Benz and Porsche joining the line-up, and with the amount of incredible capital cities set to showcase the most competitive line-up in motorsport,” said Alberto Longo, FE’s co-founder and chief championship officer.

“We’re proud to be taking our message of racing for a cleaner future, faster, to five continents around the world and look forward to more fans and families enjoying all we have to offer at our events.”

The final updates to the next season’s calendar see the Hong Kong ePrix missing in action, with the decision to drop it from the roster coming in the wake of continued civil unrest and protests that have gripped the city for months. Its place on the calendar has been claimed by Marrakech, which will be the fourth round of the season. however it is believed that Hong Kong government officials are already negotiating with Formula E to return to the 2020/21 calendar.

The upcoming season will feature three all-new venues, with Seoul, Jakarta and an all-new circuit around London’s docklands area all confirmed on the calendar.

The 2019/20 season calendar features two notable clashes with other series in which a number of the grid’s drivers compete.

The Sanya ePrix (pictured) on 21 March conflicts with the FIA World Endurance Championship’s 12 Hours of Sebring round, while the New York ePrix on 11 July will occur at the same time as the DTM championship round at the Norisring.
