The showground of Hamburg Klein Flottbek will host two of the most prestigious and lucrative show jumping series from 26 to 29 August 2021: The Longines Global Champions Tour and the thrilling GCL team competition. The odds of one of the Olympic medalists of Tokyo competing on the holy grounds of the Derby-Park are high. The schedule of events entails six CSI5* competitions including the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Hamburg on Saturday, as well as the Hamburg leg of the GCL team series.
The event will also feature an international 1* tour together with the FUNDIS Youngster Tour, a competition only for 7 and 8-year-old horses. While Sunday will hold two power-packed top-level competitions with an exciting speed class and jump-off class. Fans can enjoy a small but exquisite exhibition that provides shopping opportunities and culinary delights all weekend.

With the level of competition and excitement building year on year, this stop on the LGCT circuit will be a thriller!
