Casinos Austria congratulates the winner of the 2023 Casinos Austria Future Cup

With the Casinos Austria Future Cup, Casinos Austria supports young show jumping talents with a view to the 2024 Olympics.

The tournament series for young Austrian show-jumping talent offered an attractive competition mode and a total prize of 14,000 euros in four stages.

After a confident victory in the fourth stage on Friday, Lisa Schranz and Stacorado went into the final round of the best eight equestrians as the ones to beat. Lisa Schranz from Lower Austria was the only one to deliver a flawless performance in the final round yesterday and was thus once again – after 2021 – the overall winner of the 2023 Casinos Austria Future Cup. Casinos Austria congratulates her on her victory in the final round, which comes with a prize of 2,000 euros.

Casinos Austria established a new show jumping series as early as 2021, which has since been held in a total of four preliminary rounds and one final round. The Casinos Austria Future Cup supports young talents in equestrian sports and aims to pave their way to compete in next year’s major sporting event: the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Equestrians between 18 and 25 years of age are eligible to participate in the Cup, which is being held in cooperation with the Austrian Equestrian Sports Association (Österreichischer Pferdesportverband – OEPS).

The regulations take the aspect of the Olympics into account. In the four preliminary rounds, international riders in the corresponding age group were also admitted. By expanding the field of participants, the tournament series was raised to the performance level of larger competitions. In the Casinos Austria Future Cup final round, only Austrian nationals – the top eight equestrians from the preliminary rounds – are eligible to compete.

6,000 euros were paid out to the eight finalists, with 2,000 euros going to the winner of the final round. The points from the preliminary rounds were not taken into account in the final round, meaning that all finalists had the same chance.

Erwin van Lambaart, Director General of Casinos Austria, draws a positive summary: “It’s just part of our corporate DNA to assume what we consider our socio-political responsibility in Austria. That’s why we want to promote young Austrian show jumping talent at the Casinos Austria Future Cup, and we’ll support them on their way to the 2024 Olympics. We warmly congratulate the winner, Lisa Schranz, on her victory in the final round and are particularly pleased with the excellent field of participants. It proves that the objective of our sponsorship is the right one, and at the same time it makes the show jumping series even more attractive for spectators.”
