The FEI World Cup™ Finals, the biggest individual equestrian on the annual international sports calendar, is coming to Omaha April 4-8, 2023. Olympic-level athletes will be inside the CHI Health Center competing for world titles.
The Omaha Equestrian Foundation, a Lukas Partners client, operates this event. And its organizing staff could use your help!
Here are four ways for Omaha-area businesses and individuals to get involved with the FEI World Cup™ Finals:
1. Volunteer. More than 500 volunteers are needed to help transform the CHI Health Center into a world-class equestrian facility. Mingle with star athletes and enjoy a behind-the-scenes perspective for a few hours a day.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about volunteer opportunities.
2. Become a sponsor. The event provides worldwide brand exposure and access to an audience with strong buying power and influence. Customizable options are available. Visit omahaequestrian.org/support for more information.
3. Provide lobby or bulletin board space. Help spread the word about an event that provides a positive economic and educational impact on our community. Organizations are invited to display a movie-sized poster or set up a World Cup Finals-style horse jump. Contact email@example.com to receive a free poster.
4. Buy tickets. By packing the arena full of fans, Omaha will reinforce its sterling reputation as a gold-standard host city for big-time events. Single-session and all-session tickets are on sale now. VIP lounge passes and fully catered ringside table options are available. Visit Ticketmaster.com to buy your tickets today.
Not only will the World Cup™ Finals produce more than $19 million in local economic impact to provide a financial benefit to Omaha, but the event will also feature free educational and enrichment opportunities to positively engage the community and raise awareness of social causes.
More than 4,500 elementary school kids will tour the event space on free field trips next April. An interactive education expo will be free to the public inside the convention center. The event theme, “1723”, was developed in partnership with Bluebird Cultural Initiative and will pay homage to the horse tribes of the Great Plains and Native American culture.
