The FEI Bureau unanimously approved Bromont, located in Eastern Townships Quebec and home to ETA-Equine, as host city for the FEI’s flagship event; the FEI World Equestrian Games™, in 2018. The decision came after the FEI Evaluation Commission’s report was presented at the start of the Bureau’s two-day meeting at FEI Headquarters in Lausanne (SUI) today.
The Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park, venue for the Montreal 1976 Olympic equestrian events, will be the hub for the FEI World Equestrian Games™ in 2018. Bromont/Montreal is only the second host outside Europe following the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ in 2010 which were staged in Lexington, Kentucky (USA).
Lexington was the other remaining bidder for the 2018 Games. The Bureau felt that both bids were impressive but that Bromont/Montreal was the stronger of the two.
“We are really delighted to award the 2018 Games to Bromont/Montreal,” said FEI President HRH Princess Haya said after the Bureau decision. “The Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park is an exceptional and proven venue, and will be the ideal location for the eighth edition of the FEI World Equestrian Games, our most global equestrian event.
“We are now just 75 days from the opening ceremony of the 2014 Games in the heart of Normandy, when over 500,000 spectators and millions of TV viewers will watch the best equine and human athletes compete for world titles over two weeks of absolutely top equestrian sport.And four years from now, the Games will be heading to Canada, where we expect even larger audiences on the ground and on television as equestrian sport continues its global growth.”
