The Rally Acropolis is no more.  

A spokesperson for the Rally Acropolis organiser (OMAE) said that the local authority and the European Rally Championship have decided not to hold the event next year, and it has not appeared on the ERC's provisional 2019 calendar.

“Although the Acropolis Rally will take a break from the ERC calendar in 2019, we are already in discussions about a return in 2020," said ERC coordinator Jean-Baptiste Ley.

"It’s a high-quality, legendary event, very well run and Eurosport Events and the OMAE have always enjoyed a strong working relationship that we want to preserve. The door is always open to the Acropolis Rally.”

The first Acropolis Rally took place in 1951, and it became a World Rally Championship round in 1973. Colin McRae won it a record five times.
