For months, we’ve celebrated the build-up. Now, Omaha is ready to show the world, once again, how we do champion-caliber competition.
More than 40,000 equestrian show jumping and dressage enthusiasts from 20+ countries are descending on the city for The Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping & FEI World Cup™ Dressage Finals, which run March 29 through April 2 at CenturyLink Center Omaha.
We beat out London, Hong Kong and s’Hertogenbosch for the right to host the FEI World Cup™ Finals. Although this is our first international professional championship, we’re quite adept at attracting and impressing sports fans from around the globe. We’ve played host to the Olympic swim trials in 2012 and 2016, and will host the Olympic team trials for curling later this year. Not to mention the fact that the College World Series has called Omaha home since 1950.
To our World Cup visitors, we say “Welcome.” Enjoy the graceful action and our Midwestern hospitality, our incredible dining and our other arts and entertainment options while you’re here. (The EQUUS film festival is hosting a tour stop at Midtown Crossing March 30 – April 1.)
We’re proud of our reputation – a community known for going above and beyond to make each competition successful – and we’re ready to earn it again. Saddle up. It’s going to be a great week.
