Tickets for the first event of the 2020 Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL season are now online, complete with a full schedule of three-day thrilling action for LGCT Doha. The electrifying launchpad to the 2020 season at the Longines Arena at AL SHAQAB, a world-class equestrian facility and part of the Qatar Foundation, will welcome the top international horses and riders from around the world.
In collaboration with the Tour since 2008, Qatar has continued to build on its reputation as a global sports destination and a hub for major international sporting occasions. Leading events such as the Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL have been part of this evolution and Qatari national riders are increasingly prominent on the international show jumping stage.
One week earlier, the exciting CHI AL SHAQAB will take place from 27-29 February at the Longines Arena at AL SHAQAB with participation of top-ranking international and local riders. CHI AL SHAQAB, presented by Longines is one of only five CHI competitions worldwide and the first and only equestrian event of its kind in the Middle East and Asia region. CHI AL SHAQAB will also feature a festival area offering a range of educational and entertainment activities suitable for the entire family. For tickets click here.
Thousands of families and friends flocked to the venue last year filling the main grandstand and enjoying fun activities including pony rides for children at the impressive Kids Academy as well as watching top sport from the chic cafes with dramatic views of the main arena. Fans will be able to support the home city GCL team - Doha Falcons - and enjoy three days of spell binding sport featuring battles of the very best. The impressive, cutting edge venue of AL SHAQAB will be a fitting stage for the launch of the individual and team series fights of 2020, with a first look at who will start the season on form at this prestigious Championship leg.
