In a further strategic expansion Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL will stage a spectacular new event in the Canadian city of Montreal from 20th - 22nd September 2019.
The global circuit, which stretches from The Americas to Europe and Asia, now includes Canada for the first time and will feature a stunning new venue at the Old Port of Montreal with dramatic views of the City skyline.
Montreal, in Quebec province, is set on an island in the St Lawrence River and will be a thrilling stage for world class show jumping with the best riders and horses descending on the city for the new leg of the LGCT and GCL team series.
The new event takes place in September as the LGCT individual and GCL team series are racing towards the climax of the season and will attract an enthusiastic crowd in the horse-loving nation. One of the hallmarks of the LGCT circuit is to bring top-level show jumping to cities around the world to showcase the sport to new audiences.
With Shanghai, Doha, Paris, Mexico City, London, Berlin, Madrid and Rome already on the international calendar, the addition of Montreal will bring another dynamic, vibrant and cosmopolitan destination to the series.
