Aachen (GER) to Host World Equestrian Games 2006

Jerez de la Frontera. HRH The Infanta Doña Pilar de Borbón, President of the Fédération Equestre Internationale, today (18 September 2002) announced that Aachen, Germany, would host the 5th World Equestrian Games in September 2006.

"Following months of presentations and discussions with both Aachen and Kentucky and the two NFs, the Executive Board of the FEI today awarded the hosting of the World Equestrian Games 2006 to the German Equestrian Federation and Aachen. It was an extremely difficult decision as both venues presented outstanding bids and have such a rich equestrian heritage. We now look forward to building on the undoubted success of Jerez 2002 by hosting the world equestrian family in Aachen in 2006. We also look forward to Kentucky to continuing to host many major international equestrian events with the FEI in the future, as we all
know the exceptional quality of their events".

The FEI Executive Board also announced that it would host a joint Press Conference with the President of the German Equestrian Federation and representatives of WEG 2006 Host Venue Committee on Thursday 19 September at 13:00, together with the President of Jerez 2002 Organising Committee, Mr Pedro Pacheco.
