France lead Furusiyya Nations Cup Division 1 League standings after Rotterdam victory…


Team France completed their points-gathering campaign of the 2014 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup series today with a superb victory at the fifth leg of the Europe Division 1 League in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. But they had to fight hard for those maximum points which have now earned them a qualifying spot for the much-anticipated second annual Furusiyya Final which will take place in Barcelona, Spain in October.

With only seven of the ten competing nations making the cut to the Final from the Europe Division 1 League, the tension is certainly increasing with every leg of the series. But one team that doesn’t need to worry anymore, is the French. France has done more than enough to qualify for the Furusiyya Final and, as defending champions, it seems unlikely they will give up their crown too easily.

Standings after Round 5 of Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Jumping Europe Division 1 League 2014 at Rotterdam (NED):

1. France – 345
2. Switzerland – 280
3. Belgium – 220
4. Spain – 202.5
