€16m 4-year Sponsorship Package for the Furusiyya Nations Cup
The announcement of a new four-year, €16m sponsorship package from the Saudi Equestrian Fund came during the FEI General Assembly in Istanbul, Turkey last November. It marked an important turning-point for the long-running series as it expands from its traditionally European-oriented base to embrace the rest of the world. As part of the new 10-year partnership with Longines, the Swiss watchmaker will be the Official Timekeeper for the entire Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ series.
