Press statement: Hickstead's Nations Cup

Our response to the FEI's news about the FEI Nations Cup series.  

Nations Cup BH (47)

The organisers of The All England Jumping Course at Hickstead have been unsuccessful in their bid to host one of the new Longines League of Nations competitions, which will replace the former FEI Jumping Nations Cup series.

"Hickstead has hosted a Nations Cup for nearly 50 years, and we are obviously hugely disappointed not to have been chosen as one of the host venues for the new series. However, there are only two qualifiers in total in Europe along with the Final, which remains in Barcelona. A total of 18 bids were made with just five venues selected globally," said Lizzie Bunn, Hickstead Executive Director.

"After a magnificent win in the Nations Cup and such a brilliant week of sport, we are still keen to host a Nations Cup at Hickstead. The difference is we now have the freedom to explore new opportunities. 

"We are fortunate to have many loyal supporters, and the backing of our governing bodies and stakeholders has never been more vital. Our challenge now is that we have just weeks to make crucial decisions about the schedule for next year's shows, and to secure a new sponsorship deal."
