Doha, Qatar will once again host the LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR Championship finale at the prestigious state-of-the-art AL SHAQAB Equestrian Centre. Founded by His Highness the Father Emir, this magnificent, renowned venue will see the best showjumpers in the world pull out all the stops to win the Longines Global Champions Tour overall title for 2015.
The electrifying climax to the season at AL SHAQAB, a world-class equestrian facility and part of the Qatar Foundation, will take place from the 12-14th November. AL SHAQAB was established as part of HH The Father Emir Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani's vision and passion to preserve and perpetuate the Arabian horse in Qatar. It has since developed into a major international equestrian facility encompassing multiple equine disciplines.
Qatar, a destination which joined the Tour in 2008, has continued to build on its reputation as a global sports destination and a hub for major international sporting occasions. Leading events like the final of the Longines Global Champions Tour have been part of this evolution and Qatari national riders, including Sheikh Ali bin Khalid Al Thani and Bassem Hassan Mohammed, are increasingly prominent on the international show jumping stage.
AL SHAQAB will be the impressive final stage of the 2015 Championship - a fitting position for this top quality, cutting-edge venue. If the final this year is anything like 2014, when Britain's Scott Brash retained his title following a nail-biting three-horse race between himself, Ludger Beerbaum and Rolf-Goran Bengtsson, the culmination to the 10th Anniversary Year season is sure to be a tense affair that comes right down to the wire!
Thursday 12th and Friday 13th November will be free to the public, with tickets for the final Grand Prix on Saturday 14th November available here.
