FEI Designates $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational as WEG and European Championship Qualifier

Written by: Phelps Media Group, Inc.
Client: Morrissey Management Group (MMG)
Release Date: 2010-03-01

Tampa, FL – March 1, 2010 - Stadium Jumping, Inc., announced today the FEI, the governing body for world equestrian sports has designated this year’s $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational as a qualifying event for the World Equestrian Games 2010 and for the European Championships in 2011.

The city of Tampa, Florida, will once again play host to this event, the world’s premiere show jumping event, often dubbed the “Super Bowl of Show Jumping.” The $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational returns to Raymond James Stadium on Saturday, April 10, 2010 at 8 p.m.

The $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational is the grand finale to the Tampa Equestrian Festival which takes place at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center from March 24th through April 10th, 2010.

This year's Festival will feature top notch competition each week at the Florida State Fairgrounds, including the final World Cup Qualifier, the last chance for American and Canadian riders to gain a coveted spot in the Rolex/FEI World Cup Finals in Geneva, Switzerland in April.

Over the years, the American Invitational has been recognized as the crown jewel of American show jumping, and year in and year out, has been one of its toughest tests.

The designation by the FEI makes this event just that more important for those riders that need certification and qualification for two of the world’s most important and prestigious championships, the World Equestrian Games in 2010, and the European Championships in 2011.

The stakes will once again be high when show jumping excitement returns to Tampa Bay in March.

Tickets for the $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational are now on sale.

Tickets can be purchased by calling 1-800-237-8924, or through Ticketmaster. This exciting event is open to the public, and tickets can be purchased online by visiting
