The CoRoT-Hungarian Asteroseismology Group was established in 2005 and joined the preparatory work of the CoRoT Mission via an ESA PECS project. After the successful launch of the telescope, we have continued our work of groundbased multi-colour photometric observations and contributed to the analyses of CoRoT data. Our observations were focused on δ Scuti, γ Doradus, and RR Lyrae stars. The follow-up of some selected targets' pulsations in different wavelengths has provided valuable information for mode identification. We provided additional support by the confirmation of relatively faint variables' spectral types. We proved that our ground-based observations can help in the interpretation of a target with a contaminated CoRoT light curve. In this paper, we summarize our most important results of the photometric support for the CoRoT Mission.
