CHIO Aachen 2023: WDR and ZDF are broadcasting live

It is possible to support and keep your fingers crossed for your favourites in front of the TV

Being part of it is everything? That’s right! It is possible to be there live in the stadiums at the CHIO Aachen, the World Equestrian Festival, again this year. But it is also being shown on TV too. Equestrian sport fans, who don’t have the opportunity to travel to Aachen, can bring a bit of the CHIO Aachen flair to their own homes. WDR and ZDF are broadcasting different competitions and events – around 30 hours in total.

The highlights from June 27th onwards are the Opening Ceremony on Tuesday evening (8.15 p.m., WDR live), the Mercedes-Benz Nations Cup on Thursday evening (8.15 p.m., WDR live), the SAP Cup (cross-country course, eventing ) on July 1st from 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. on WDR and on the final Sunday (July 2nd), the Rolex Grand Prix and the Deutsche Bank Prize (Dressage) will be transmitted live on ZDF und WDR from 11.00 a.m. onwards. Furthermore, CHIO Aachen fans will be able to enjoy live broadcasts of the Turkish Airlines Prize of Europe on Wednesday evening on June 30th, of the “RWE Prize of North Rhine-Westphalia and the “Feinkost Käfer Prize from 2.15 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. on Friday, July 1st,” and they can also watch the “Allianz Prize” on Saturday afternoon on WDR. The live programme will be enhanced by summaries and reports on the individual days of the show – as well as the famous and emotional Farewell to the Nations.


Thanks to cutting-edge camera technology – for instance the spectacular “Spidercam” will be implemented – the CHIO Aachen 2023 will also be an exciting experience in front of TV and computer screens. 250 TV employees on-site are responsible for the TV coverage, which will be broadcast all over the world.


The national state-run TV channels will be showing over 30 hours of coverage from the World Equestrian Festival. In addition to the live transmissions of the sport, there will be various report formats, news films and items by Studio Aachen, which will all provide an exciting look behind the scenes. There will be broadcasts in over 140 countries all around the globe.


All tests can also be followed live online at ClipMyHorse.TV.
