Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ 2021 Europe Division 1 team allocations confirmed

Allocation of teams to Europe Division 1 events for the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ 2021 series have been confirmed this week, giving equestrian sports fans something really positive to look forward to next season following a year of significant disruption to the worldwide sporting calendar.

Europe Division 1 will start with the same 10 teams for the 2021 season – defending champions Ireland, along with Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and Sweden.

Each team can earn qualifying points at its allocated four of the seven Europe Division 1 events. The seven best-ranked teams will qualify for the Final, which takes place in Barcelona (ESP) in October 2021. The Division 1 opening qualifier takes place in La Baule (FRA) in May 2021.

The allocations table indicates the venues where eligible teams will be chasing FEI Nations Cup™ points, but the starting field at these events will not be restricted to those countries alone.  Other nations can also compete in legs of the series throughout the Europe Division 1 season.
