CHIO Aachen 2020 goes digital

Thursday, 28 May 2020
CHIO Aachen 2020

The O in CHIO Aachen is for ‘online’ this year, as the “Concours Hippique International Officiel” as a one-off occurrence is being staged as the “Concours Hippique International Online” after the organisers were forced to cancel the 2020-edition of the prestigious event due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The digital edition of CHIO Aachen will be taking place from August 4-9 August 2020.

The idea behind the digital version of CHIO Aachen is a combination between virtual experiences, social media, sports and entertainment. There will be dressage and show jumping challenges with international top riders, as well as a virtual eventing competition, plenty of fan involvement, a mobile phone game and a German vs. Dutch national cup in four-in-hand driving. Highlights of some of the most famous competitions in the world from past years will also be shown. The Rolex Grand Prix, Mercedes-Benz Nations Cup, Deutsche Bank Prize and co. will be enriched with current comments by athletes, background information, fun facts and a lot of material that has not been published before.

“We have been relying on state-of-the-art technology and innovations for many years already to present our unique sport in the best light and to also make it more transparent and thus more easily comprehensible, of course,” commented Michael Mronz, General Manager of Aachener Reitturnier GmbH. 

“Of course, we would have all preferred a live event at our traditional showgrounds,” stated Carl Meulenbergh, President of the ALRV, “however I am convinced that we will be able to bring a great deal of the legendary CHIO Aachen atmosphere to the people’s homes in the scope of this digital event.”

Over the coming days and weeks, details will be announced on CHIO Aachen's social media platforms and on the website at chioaachen.de.
