Horse and rider combinations from more than 70 nations are expected to compete in the massive 12-day event.
The initial sale of tickets for the FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018 includes the following options: All Games Pass, Week 1 Pass, Week 2 Pass, and then All Session Passes for all of the eight disciplines. Individual Discipline specific day sessions will be sold, subject to availability, in early November after all multi-session discipline tickets are sold.
Mark Bellissimo, CEO of host venue Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Tryon, NC, USA, said: “Demand from the event is way beyond our expectations and it would not surprise me if this event were to sell out early. We have experienced unprecedented demand, far bigger than we ever anticipated. There is tremendous appetite for this event, so we encourage people to buy now.”
Opening Ceremonies and Closing Ceremonies tickets will be sold separately in early December after details are released. Day passes will be sold that allow access to the venue to experience the trade fair, event expo, as well as equestrian demonstrations and will be sold three months prior to the event.
VIP tickets and hospitality packages will also be released in early November and customers can trade up their purchased tickets toward these higher value ticketing/hospitality options.
Due to the high demand for ticket packages, those ticketing types are being offered first to ensure that those who want to purchase ticket packages can receive the same seats for all events. Seats will be assigned on a first come, first served basis according to the date and timestamp of the ticket purchase. The earlier your purchase, the better your seats.
- All Day Session Passes are currently SOLD OUT. We will re-evaluate the release of additional All Day Session Passes at the time of Individual Discipline Session tickets in November
- We anticipate a sold-out event, as pre-purchase ticket sales were significantly above estimates
- Ticket prices outlined below are the advanced public ticket prices which are discounted from prices for sales, subject to availability, on the day of the event
Complementing the unparalleled opportunity to watch the world’s top riders and horses compete is the chance to discover the distinct culture and adventures within the Carolinas region. TIEC is centrally located within an hour of some of the United States’ top destinations including Asheville and Charlotte in North Carolina and Greenville in South Carolina. WEG attendees are encouraged to plan excursions to experience the collection of small towns and dynamic cities that surround the venue.
