Board Resolution

Board Resolution

FEI Named Series 2021/22 – Allocation of Qualifiers

 

The Board agreed that all Organisers who were originally allocated a Qualifier by the Board would automatically be allocated a Qualifier for the 2021/22 season (subject to signature of the Host Agreement) without any application or bid process (unless the Organiser informs the FEI that they do not want to host a Qualifier for the 2021/22 season):

  • FEI Dressage World Cup™ – Western European League 2021/22
  • FEI Driving World Cup™ 2021/22
  • FEI Jumping Ponies’ Trophy 2021
  • FEI Eventing Nations Cup™ 2021

In cases where the National Federations “rotate” the qualifier each year between different Organisers in their country, it would be left up to the relevant National Federation to inform the FEI which Organiser would hold the Qualifier in 2021/22.

This Resolution would not apply to Organisers who were allocated Qualifiers to replace 2020/21 Qualifiers that were cancelled.

If applications are received from new Organisers to host 2021/2022 Qualifiers (i.e. from Organisers who were not originally part of the 2020/21 season) such applications would be reviewed on a case by case basis, by the relevant Technical Committee, with regards to the quality of the Event and compatibility with the Series calendar, before being proposed to the Board for allocation.

As the Qualifiers for the FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Youth 2021 have also already been allocated (at a previous Board Teleconference) but the 2021 Final has not, the FEI would open a “light” bidding process for applications to host the Final.

Ranking Mitigation Policies
 

The Covid-19 outbreak has led to the cancellation or postponement of numerous international events in various regions of the world as of March 2020 and it is still uncertain when the sport will resume at a normal pace. To mitigate the impact this will have on the Longines Rankings and FEI Rankings, until the situation is stabilised the Board has approved two Mitigation Policies: the Longines Rankings and the FEI Rankings.
