With more than 500,000 people expected to attend the 2018 Games, the 12-day spectacle of equestrian champions is one of the biggest events on the global sporting calendar and will be the largest equestrian event in North Carolina’s history.
Mark Bellissimo, CEO of host venue Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Tryon, NC, USA, said: “Demand from the event is way beyond our expectations and it would not surprise me if this event were to sell out early. We have experienced unprecedented demand, far bigger than we ever anticipated. There is tremendous appetite for this event, so we encourage people to buy now.”
Tickets for the WEG include the following options: a standard Day Pass, Individual Event Pass, All Session Discipline Pass, All Session Day Pass – Weekdays Only, All Games Pass – Week One, All Games Pass – Week Two, and an All Games Pass. Single event ticket sales will launch in November.
Opening Ceremonies and Closing Ceremonies tickets will be sold separately in early December after details are released. Day passes will be sold that allow access to the venue to experience the trade fair, event expo, as well as equestrian demonstrations and will be sold three months prior to the event.
VIP tickets and hospitality packages will be released in early November and customers can trade up their purchased tickets toward these higher value ticketing/hospitality options.
Held every four years alternating with the Olympic Games, the FEI World Equestrian Games™ crowns the world’s best athletes and horses as the ultimate world champions in the equestrian disciplines of Jumping, Dressage and Para-Equestrian Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Reining, Vaulting and Endurance. Horse and rider combinations from more than 70 nations are expected to compete in the massive 12-day event.
