ECCO FEI European Championships 2013 is warming up

Wednesday, 20 February 2013

Riding and entertainment in world class. The time is approaching fast towards Denmark's largest sporting event in 2013 - European Championships in show jumping, dressage and para-dressage 20th-25th August 2013 in Herning. We will get to experience the world's elite compete on Danish soil under the best possible conditions. Alongside the exciting championships there will be held international classes where some of our young and promising Danish top riders can try their hands with riders from other nations.

It will be a week filled with topridning, but we also offer terrific entertainment. The organizers have been trying to create an event we will never forget. The highlight of the entertainment will be the fantastic Gala Show on Saturday night with top professional artists. For our younger guests there will be opportunity to enjoy themselves in nothing less than Circus Benneweis' tent, which will be on site all week.

ECCO FEI European Championships 2013 gives a huge TV exposure. National television (DR) will stand for the TV production, which we expect will be displayed on more than 50 TV channels around the world and seen by over 100 million people. DR has even planned to send all EC competitions in jumping and dressage, ie. more than 25 hours of live TV on the national channel. "It is an incredible exposure of our sport and our championships, which will increase the interest for riding in Denmark. There has never been shown so much riding on Danish television, "says Mr. Kristoffersen, Sports Director of the European Herning.

Accommodation within walking distance. In order to meet the strong demand for accommodation, the European Herning in close collaboration with the MCH Exhibition Centre Herning offer accommodation only 200 meters from the showground. There will be optimal accommodation conditions with good toilet and bathing facilities, and most importantly, it will be able to stay within walking distance to the assembly area. The site can be booked at the MCH Exhibition Centre Herning.

Hurry up - tickets torn away! We are seeing a lot of interest in the event, as both can be seen on website activity and Facebook, but also on the huge ticket sale. "It has been an amazing experience that we already half a year before the competition starts are almost sold out on the best cat. 1 tickets on Sundays, and on the best partout cards. This we had only hoped for, but not expected, "says Jens Trabjerg, Show President of the European Herning.
