Aachen to host WEG 2006
19 September 2002

The President of the F??ation Equestre Internationale, HRH The Infanta Do? Pilar de Borb?, today announced that Aachen, Germany, would host the 5th World Equestrian Games in September 2006.

"Following months of presentations and discussions with both Aachen and Kentucky and the two National Federations, the Executive Board of the FEI today awarded the hosting of the World Equestrian Games 2006 to the German Equestrian Federation and Aachen.

It was an extremely difficult decision as both venues presented outstanding bids and have such a rich equestrian heritage. We now look forward to building on the undoubted success of Jerez 2002 by hosting the world equestrian family in Aachen in 2006.

We also look forward to Kentucky to continuing to host many major international equestrian events with the FEI in the future, as we all know the exceptional quality of their events".
