The 2018 season of the Longines Global Champions Tour is about to start. Spread over four days, the magical destination of Mexico City will welcome the world's best horses and riders to the stunning Campo Marte grass arena for what promises to be an electric season opener.
Between march 22nd and March 25th, top riders will compete in Mexico before continuing the tour in Miami, Shanghai, Madrid, Hamburg, St Tropez, Cannes, Cascais, Monaco, Paris, Chantilly, Berlin, Londron, Valkenswaard, Rome, Doha, and Prague. The prizes top over 40 million euros, a new record.
The Mexico program with 1.165.380 in prizes along with each Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL event can be separated into two categories - CSI5* and CSI2* classes. The CSI5* is the top level competition, where the top ranked riders in the world will compete for the highest prize money, over the biggest fences - up to 1.60m which is the highest in the sport. The CSI2* classes are slightly smaller in height, and offer opportunities for many local athletes as well as international rising stars.
All the CSI5* rounds will be streamed live via our website featuring exclusive studio interviews, expert commentary and of course all the action from the arena.
Last year over 20,000 fans watched as the world’s best battled it out for top honours at the spectacular debut of Mexico City, with the grassy picture perfect arena of Campo Marte the stunning setting for the first even of the season. With the top riders in the world hungry to get the season started and lay down an early gauntlet for the 2018 Champion of Champions title, the event promises to be full of fierce rivalry, top entertainment and world-class sport.
