After winning the Nations Cup in Budapest on Friday, Belgium looks set for promotion to the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Europe Division 1 next season – even though there are still four legs of Europe Division 2 to run. Belgium now heads the Europe Division 2 leaderboard with 421 points followed by Sweden in second with 320 and Norway in third with 273. The remaining rounds will take place in Bratislava (SVK) on Friday 2 August, Gijon (ESP) on Friday 30 August, Arezzo (ITA) on Friday 6 September and at Kiev (UKR) on Friday 13 September.
According to the series’ rules, for the 2014 season the NFs (ten) permitted to take part in Division 1 are as follows:
· The European NFs placed first, second and third at the previous year’s Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Final;
· The two best placed NFs on the previous year’s Division 2 standings; if any or both of these two NFs cannot take part in Division 1 the vacant place(s) are filled from the previous year’s Division 1 standings. The same applies if either of these teams is placed 1st to 3rd in the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Final;
· The remaining teams will be selected in descending order from the previous year’s Division 1 standings to fill the quota of ten teams.
