FEI announces candidate cities for FEI World Equestrian Games 2022

After the withdrawal of Bromont (CAN) earlier this year for the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, it was only recently announced in November that the Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina (USA) was confirmed as the new venue.

In the meantime, candidates applied to host the 2022 Games. The event, which is held every four years, combines eight World Championships: jumping, dressage, para-equestrian dressage, eventing, driving, endurance, vaulting and reining.

The FEI announced two cities as official candidates to host the FEI World Equestrian Games 2022: Lexington, Kentucky (USA) and Samorin (SVK).

FEI President Ingmar De Vos noted: “Both the Kentucky and Samorin venues have the infrastructure in place already to host the Games, which is one of the biggest events on the global sporting calendar. There’s no doubt that these Games are a huge undertaking, but we believe both Samorin and Kentucky have the capability to host spectacular Games.”

The final FEI bureau decision and allocation of the Games will be in November 2017. In the run up to this date, site visits will be scheduled, and the FEI Evaluation Commission will receive submission of the candidates’ complete bid, signed host agreements and formal presentations.

The first FEI World Equestrian Games were hosted in Stockholm (SWE) in 1990 and later in The Hague (NED) in 1994, Rome (ITA) in 1998, Jerez (ESP) in 2002, Aachen (GER) in 2006, Lexington, Kentucky (USA) 2010 and then Normandy (FRA) in 2014.
