Board Resolution
Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Rules 2020
 

The Board approved changes in the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Rules 2020 to allow for a potential Final of the Series in 2020, namely:

  • That the qualifier that took place in North America (Wellington) and the qualifiers eventually still taking place in North America and Europe Division 1 will not serve as qualification for the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Final 2020.

  • To have a maximum of 22 teams in the Final.
  • That the Season 2021 Division 1 will start with the same 10 teams, as the launch of the Longines EEF Series has been postponed until 2021 and there will be no promotion and relegation in 2020.
