Singapore Set to Host the FIA Formula One World Championship Until 2028

The Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix is one of the city’s most highly anticipated events each year, taking place on the Marina Bay Circuit – the first street circuit in Asia designed for Formula One races. Despite its two year hiatus, Singapore will continue to host the race as part of the FIA Formula One World Championship for another seven years, from 2022 to 2028.

Returning to the Lion City from 30 September to 2 October 2022, the race is set to reinvigorate tourism and lifestyle sectors, as well as support local jobs and businesses, while adopting solutions to reduce its carbon footprint. In the lead up to the 2022 race, all parties will work closely together with relevant government agencies and industry stakeholders to refine and implement appropriate protocols to prioritise the health and safety of all participants, staff, fans and the community.

Since its debut in 2008, the Singapore night race has been staged 12 times and attracted more than 550,000 unique international visitors. About 268,000 spectators attended when it was last held in 2019, marking the second-highest attendance for the race to date. In recent years, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Singapore race experience has also been elevated by an exciting line-up of lifestyle and entertainment programmes that extend beyond the Circuit.

This is the fourth contract renewal for Singapore, and the seven-year extension is the longest for the race to date. In turn, giving Singapore a longer runway to capture pent-up demand as international travel recovers.

Following the announcement of ticket prices, Destination Asia Singapore will be launching its all inclusive packages. In the meantime, click here to view and download our Roadmap to Reopening guide for Singapore in English language.
