All about teamwork, the FEI Nations Cup™ is back for 2019, and it will kick off at Deeridge Farm in Wellington, Florida (USA) next month, as athletes hope to pick up points to ensure qualification for the final in April (Barcelona).
North American athletes will be heading to Wellington, Ocala, Guadalajara and Leon by early February, while Western Europe’s elite will compete in Basel, Leipzig, Amsterdam and Bordeaux.
There will be a single qualifier for the Middle East region at Abu Dhabi (UAE) in February, while the sole Europe Division 2 qualifier looks set to take place in Athens (GRE), with full details yet to be confirmed.
For the 10 Europe Division 1 teams the edge-of-the-seat action gets underway at La Baule (FRA) in May, and from there it moves on to St Gallen (SUI), Sopot (POL) and Geesteren (NED) in June, and then to Falsterbo (SWE) and Hickstead (GBR) in July. The last of the seven legs in this division will take place in Dublin (IRL) in August, and each team has been allocated four specific qualifying opportunities, with all four results counting in the battle for a qualifying spot at the 2019 Final.
