The Fédération Equestre Internationale Bureau has today, June 10, allocated host cities for a number of major FEI events over the next three years, including the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Show Jumping Final for 2015, the Longines FEI World Cup Show Jumping and FEI World Cup Dressage Finals in 2017 and FEI European Championships from 2015-2017.

Barcelona has been allocated the 2015 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Show Jumping Final for the third successive year.

Omaha, Neb., will host the joint Longines FEI World Cup Show Jumping and FEI World Cup Dressage Finals in 2017, holding off strong challenges from Hong Kong (show jumping) and ‘s-Hertogenbosch (dressage). The joint finals will run from March 27 to April 2, 2017.

The Swedish city of Gothenburg has won out in its joint-bid to host the 2017 FEI European Show Jumping, Dressage, Para-Dressage and Driving Championships (Aug. 22-27). Rotterdam, the Netherlands, was the other bidder for the 2017 European Show Jumping Championships.

Another big winner in the allocation process was Strzegom, Poland, which won out over Fontainebleau, France, in the bid to host the 2017 FEI European Eventing Championships. It will be the first time that Strzegom has hosted the senior championships.

“We have had some really fantastic bids for our major events,” FEI Secretary General Ingmar De Vos said. “It’s very exciting that Omaha, which has the full support of the local community and government, will be hosting both the Longines FEI World Cup Show Jumping and FEI World Cup Dressage Finals in 2017. And we are also very much looking forward to going to Gothenburg for the European Show Jumping, Dressage, Para-Dressage and Driving Championships in 2017, and to Strzegom for the European Eventing Championships 2017.

“We’re also thrilled to have Barcelona hosting the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Show Jumping Final for the third year in a row. It’s become the home of the Furusiyya Final, and we know the Organizing Committee will do a fabulous job,” he continued. “The FEI always welcomes new venues for its championships and finals, and it’s good to see some different cities included in today’s allocations.”

The allocations come on the back of the June 9 announcement that the FEI flagship event, the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, will take place in Canada.
