The Elite Eventing Premium is a brand new and additional prize money fund where, the Chedington Bicton Park 5* €125,000 prize fund becomes the
minimum prize pool that the Bicton competitors are vying for! Regardless of the number of competitors, the top 10 placed riders at Bicton 5* will be awarded a share of the additional prize money generated by the Bicton Live Stream Weekend Pass sales.
There is no cap to how big the Elite Eventing Premium can be, with every Bicton Live Stream Weekend Pass contributing directly to the fund. If there are 10,000 Bicton Weekend Passes sold, the Elite Eventing Premium would be an additional £37,500 to be shared by the top 10 placed riders. If there are 15,000 Bicton Weekend Passes sold, the Bicton competitors would be vying for an Elite Eventing Premium of £75,000 to be shared by the top 10 placed riders.
This is the first time ever that a direct connection has been made from Event Sponsors to Event Riders. The Elite Eventing Premium clearly rewards Elite level Event riders who have missed out for 2 years on most 5* Eventing competition opportunities, and it positions Elite Eventing to continue to directly benefit the sport of Eventing in the future. In this way, the wider Eventing audience are directly supporting the viability of Eventing sport.
The 2021 Elite Eventing Premium will be distributed to the Bicton competitors, as follows:
The first 5,000 purchases of the Chedington Bicton Park 5* Live Steam Weekend Pass go directly into supporting the successful conduct of the Chedington Bicton Park 5* event. In these exceptional circumstances, that have seen the UK Eventing Circuit not host a 5* Event for the past 2 years, the Eventing community is very supportive of the Bicton Park Organising Team in their quest to support Equestrian sport at every level.
For every sale of the Chedington Bicton Park 5* Live Steam Weekend Pass over the initial 5,000 purchases; Elite Eventing will donate £7.50 directly into the Elite Eventing Premium
