Ireland leads the way as FEI confirms Longines League of Nations™ Qualification Ranking for 2024

The FEI has published the Longines League of Nations™ Qualification Ranking, for 2024 which features the ten teams that are qualified for the FEI’s new flagship Series which gets underway in Abu Dhabi (UAE) on 8 February 2024.

No stranger to podiums and with great depth of talent, the top ten teams on the Longines League of Nations™ Qualification Ranking include Ireland – in frontrunner position – followed by USA, France, Germany, Switzerland, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Brazil.

These ten teams have now been invited to confirm their participation in the inaugural Longines League of Nations™ season which will see the world’s best Jumping teams compete against each other at four qualifiers in Abu Dhabi (UAE), Ocala (USA), St. Gallen (SUI) and Rotterdam (NED), in order to secure one of the coveted spots at the Longines League of Nations™ Final in Barcelona (ESP) where the best eight nations will battle for the title. 

“The Longines League of Nations is all about the team, and working together to achieve something greater than any individual performance,” said FEI President Ingmar De Vos.

“To be in the top ten of the Longines League of Nations Qualification Ranking is in itself a huge achievement, and I want to congratulate all the individuals that have contributed to their nation’s ranking – from the athletes, the owners, the grooms, the Chefs d’Equipe, the support teams, the trainers and of course the National Federations, because that was a big team effort!

“We are really excited and working closely with the Organisers to provide the very best platform to showcase the very best sport from the very best nations, and we are looking forward to working closely with the ten nations that will be part of the Longines League of Nations Series in 2024.

And lastly, I want to thank our Top Partner Longines for their incredible support and commitment to this historic Series and everything that it stands for in our community.
