Elite sporting competition.
On 17 July 2014, more than 40,000 visitors attended one of the highlights of the CHIO Aachen: The Mercedes-Benz Nations’ Cup. The world’s best riders and horses took to the “holy green” of Aachen’s Soers in an elite sporting competition, delivering a thrilling event for the audience at the sold-out stadium. The Belgian Equestrian team took the victory.
In 2014 Mercedes-Benz and CHIO Aachen celebrate the anniversary of a very special partnership. The general sponsor has now supported the CHIO (Concours Hippique International Officiel) World Equestrian Festival for 60 years. The event broadcast in more than 140 countries attracts approximately 360,000 visitors every year.
