New CCI5*-L event on the 2021 calendar?

Can we expect a 7th five star competition to be added on to the eventing calendar? Most likely yes. In the notes from the FEI Board Meeting from yesterday we can read that the board did welcome the possible addition of a seventh CCI5*-L competition on the calendar for 2021.

The new event would run at Fairhill, USA. For which the Eventing Committee have approved the requirements for a CCI5*-L competition.

The FEI Secretary General will formally approve this new inclusion when the FEI Calendar is finalised next month.

Tri-Star Grand Slam Eventing Series.

The board also approved the 2021 calendar, points system and prize money for the Tri-Star Grand Slam Eventing Series.

The Tri-Star Grand Slam Eventing was approved by the FEI Board for the first time in spring 2016. With the aim to raise the profile of the sport and support the wider Eventing community, including athletes, owners and organisers by linking four CCI4*-S level events in Great Britain.
