Badminton Horse Trials Announce Departure of Leading Sponsor
In a shock announcement today Badminton Horse Trials have spoken of the withdrawal of leading sponsors, Mitsubishi Motors following next year’s event.
Said Badminton Horse Trials’ event director, Hugh Thomas,
It is always sad when a very successful partnership comes to an end, and especially when over the years event and sponsor have developed a genuine friendship, however when one door closes another one opens and it will be exciting to see where that leads.”
Mitsubishi Motors have claimed headline sponsorship of the Gloucestershire based CCI4* event for 27 years, with 2019 marking it’s final 28th year.
Badminton Horse Trials remain a key stage in the Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing, alongside other world-leading three-day event spectaculars; Kentucky and Burghley Horse Trials.
Rob Lindley, Managing Director at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK commented
We have had an outstanding collaboration with the Badminton Horse Trials and it has played an important part in raising the profile of our brand and our vehicles over the years. Badminton 2019 will be as prestigious as ever and we wish the Event the greatest success for the future.”
Badminton celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2019 and will take place from Wednesday 1st May through to Sunday 5th May 2019.
