FEI announces host city for Eventing World Championships
The FEI has announced Pratoni del Vivaro, Italy, as the host of the FEI World Championship 2022.
The Italian venue, located 35 kilometres south of Rome, will host the World Championship from 14 – 18 September 2022 and is no stranger to running high-level equestrian events and FEI Championships. It was the site for the cross country competition at the FEI World Equestrian Games™ 1998 and hosted the FEI World Driving Championships for Singles in 2006 and 2010.
Announced at their General Assembly in the Russian capital Moscow, FEI Secretary General Sabrina Ibáñez said; “We received some truly excellent bids and unfortunately we don’t have enough FEI World Championships to allocate to everyone, but we very much hope that these excellent organisers will bid again in the future to host championships at their venues.”
The World Championships 2022 in the Olympic and Paralympic disciplines of Jumping, Eventing, Dressage and Para Dressage, will serve as qualifiers for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
