CHIO Aachen 2020 Cancelled

“This was a very emotional and very difficult decision for us,” stated Michael Mronz, General Manager of the Aachener Reitturnier GmbH (ART). Mronz says that, although the CHIO Aachen is well-aligned thanks to its strong, reliable partners and the great support of its loyal spectators, the situation still presents a huge challenge.

 However, the fans and friends of the CHIO Aachen won’t have to completely miss out as the event is hoping to organise a virtual CHIO Aachen 2020, making it possible to experience the legendary CHIO Aachen atmosphere in digital form. The organisers will present more details about the project over the next few days.

The World Equestrian Festival at CHIO Aachen, to have been held from May 29th – June 7th in Aachen Germany, has been postponed to a later date due to the current Coronavirus situation

The original venue date at the beginning of June cannot be adhered to says Event Director Frank Kemperman

 “It makes no sense to stick to the planned date, the current and future health and safety of all persons involved in the show has absolute priority for us. Our primary goal is now to organise the CHIO Aachen at a later date in the year”

The SAP Cup eventing competition would have run on June 5th and 6th; as soon as new dates for the CHIO Aachen 2020 has been finalised, it will be announced immediately.

The CHIO Aachen organisers will then also inform the ticket customers about all further necessary details. Due to the current circumstances, the offices of the CHIO Aachen will remain closed until further notice.
