The FEI European Championships will be held from 11 to 23 August 2015 in the grounds of the tradition-steeped Aachen Soers. For the first time, five equestrian disciplines will be contested at a single location. Highlights of the Championships, which are expected to attract some 450,000 visitors, include the team show-jumping event and the Mercedes-Benz Cup. Riding for their respective nations, the best show-jumpers from across Europe will compete to provide the spectators in the packed stadium with the famous Aachen atmosphere of thrilling excitement. The Mercedes-Benz Cup, with prize money of 300,000 euros on offer, will be hotly contested not only by the defending title holders from Great Britain, but also by the German team around Mercedes-Benz Brand Ambassador Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum.
