Press release from Global Champions League

 


 

The GCL Super Cup Quarter Finals will kick off in just over one month with 12 international teams fighting for survival in the thrilling knockout competition.

It will be a spectacular curtain raiser to the GC Prague Playoffs where the GCL Super Cup and the Longines Global Champions Tour Super Grand Prix will take centre stage and almost €12 million in prize money will be up for grabs during the event.

The dozen teams fighting for supremacy on Thursday 21st November at the O2 Arena in Prague to win a place in the Semi Finals the following evening are: Miami Celtics, Berlin Eagles, Prague Lions, Scandinavian Vikings, Paris Panthers, Monaco Aces, Valkenswaard United, New York Empire, Hamburg Giants, Cannes Stars, Chantilly Pegasus and Doha Falcons. 

The sporting action will kick off at 8pm CET and equestrian fans around the world will be able to watch live on GC TV and enjoy a series of stunning opening ceremonies and entertainment shows in the indoor arena in the Czech Republic’s beautiful capital city.

Last year the first-ever GC Prague Playoffs event was hailed as a ‘milestone’ in the sport by multi-Olympian Ludger Beerbaum. Marcus Ehning, who only last month celebrated achieving his season-long goal of qualifying for the LGCT Super GP - said after last year’s event: "I have done this sport already a few years and I never saw something like this before. It’s great for the sport and we’re very happy to be a part of it."

Here is how the rest of the sporting action will unfold:
