After a young French team topped the podium and Bulgaria clinched the crucial 100 points at the Longines EEF Series South Regional qualifier in Gorla (Italy) over the weekend, we now head to Mannheim (Germany) for our first Central Regional qualifier on May 7th.

Hosts Germany will be fielding a team alongside Spain, Sweden, Czech Republic, Austria, the Netherlands, France, Hungary, Switzerland, and Slovakia. All teams, except Spain, Sweden and France, are battling it out for the all-important qualifier points to gain entry to the Ebreichsdorf (Austria) Central/South semi-final.

The event has attracted a hugely talented entry list with the current Longines FEI World Number 1 Henrik Von Eckermann lining up for team Sweden, who also bring Peder Fredricson forward making them one to watch.

Show president Peter Hofmann is looking forward to the strong competition ahead and welcoming the Longines EEF Series back to Mannheim.

"I am very proud that after the great premiere of the Longines EEF Nations' Cup last year, the Maimarkt-Show in Mannheim was again selected by the EEF to host the CSIO*** and was furthermore nominated for 2024 and 2025."
