The FEI and the Global Champions League (GCL) continue to battle it out, both inside and outside the court room. Today, FEI President Ingmar De Vos again confirmed that the FEI’s position on the GCL remains unchanged and that the federation will continue to fight the decision of the Belgian Competition Authority (BCA) with all legal means.

“The GCL is still an unsanctioned event which is not approved by the FEI and we are still seeking a full annulment of the decision,” Ingmar De Vos said in a press release from the FEI.

“As the international governing body, we of course have to respect the decision of the Court and have complied with the BCA ruling to publish a statement declaring that, as an interim measure, athletes and horses competing in the GCL events will not be sanctioned. But I want to make it absolutely clear, these are only interim measures which we will continue to fight and that no decision has yet been taken on the merits of the case.”

“Some people are trying to create confusion about this case and the position of the FEI, but let me be very clear, our position has not changed. We will fight to defend the principal of unsanctioned events and, once this rule is upheld, it will be applied immediately.”
