LYON (FRA) TO HOST FEI WORLD CUP™ JUMPING AND DRESSAGE FINALS IN 2014
Following the withdrawal last week of Guadalajara's (MEX) bid to host the FEI World Cup™ Final Jumping in 2014, the FEI Bureau has today allocated the FEI World Cup™ Jumping and Dressage Finals 2014 to Lyon (FRA). The French city was one of two bidders for the 2014 Finals.
"We very much regret that Guadalajara was not able to comply with the FEI requirements within the timeframe and we understand that they need some more time to put on a perfect event. They are now working on a bid for the FEI World Cup™ Final in 2015 and we look forward to receiving it," said FEI Secretary General Ingmar De Vos.
"We are delighted to give the 2014 FEI World Cup™ Finals in both Jumping and Dressage to Lyon and look forward to spectacular sport in France."
The FEI World Cup™ Jumping and Dressage Finals 2014 will run from 16-20 April.
