CHIO Aachen

Bringing Fans Closer to Equestrian Sports with SAP Technology

With over 350,000 spectators every year, the Concours Hippique International Officiel, CHIO Aachen, offers Nations' Cups in the five disciplines of dressage, jumping, eventing, four-in-hand driving, and vaulting. With SAP as its official technology sponsor, the CHIO worked together with the Design & Co-Innovation Center at SAP to enable fans to be a part of the game too.

The team developed several apps based on SAP software technology. A mobile event app allows the audience to judge the dressage live, and the scores are presented in the stadium at the end of the course. The Audience Judge app enables tournament spectators to submit scores on each equestrian's performance and compare them with the official jury’s evaluation. The Quiz app provides fans with a great opportunity to learn more about the event and equestrian sports. SAP solutions bring CHIO Aachen fans in on the action.

“It’s important for us to come up with technology innovations that really enhance the audience experience, not just something nice to have. And SAP Cloud Platform is helping us do exactly that.”

Michael Mronz, General Manager, Aachen Reitturnier GmbH
