CHIO Aachen takes action against non-authorised ticket trading

The Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. (ALRV) as the organiser of the World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen, is stepping up its fight against the non-authorised trade in tickets. In order to be able to take even more effective action against the traders from now on, the CHIO Aachen is working together with the renowned Munich law firm Lentze Stopper.


With the help of the law firm, the ALRV will take action against the ticket black market as comprehensively as possible and issue warnings to the traders. If necessary, charges will also be filed and legal proceedings initiated. The loyal CHIO Aachen visitors suffer the most from the often clearly inflated prices on the ticket black market, and this is to be changed. This will happen in particular by intensively monitoring the secondary ticket market on the internet. Tickets are offered on platforms such as eBay, eBay classifieds or Viagogo, often at a multiple of the regular price – a clear violation of the General Terms and Conditions of the ALRV. The General Terms and Conditions clearly prohibit the resale of CHIO Aachen tickets. Sellers run the risk of being warned because of the violation of the General Terms and Conditions of the ALRV and buyers run the risk of purchasing invalid tickets for a lot of money, which then do not entitle them to enter the CHIO Aachen.


Should you become aware of any irregularities when purchasing a ticket, please contact the organisers at or by phone on +49(0)241-917-1111.
