What are the main concepts and timelines of the FEI Online Invitation System


The FEI Online Invitation System will manage the CSI Invitation Rules through an online platform.

This platform will guarantee the correct application of the rules and will provide opportunity to Athletes to compete in different Events throughout the world.

Please refer to Annex V of the FEI Jumping Rules, which explains the quotas, concepts and rules that must be followed.

 

THE MAIN WORKFLOW:

    1. Athletes choose to which Events they would like to receive an invitation

    • Athletes can choose up to 5 Events for a given week
    • Athletes can list the Events in order of priority
    • Athletes can choose from all Events where the CSI Invitation Rules apply
    • Athletes can do this on the computer (https://invitation.fei.org) or via the FEI SportManager App

    2. National Federations confirm the choices of their Athletes

    • You must confirm each Athlete that has made a choice
    • You can edit, add, change or delete the choices of the Athletes
    • You can add an Athlete to the list if the Athlete had not made any choices
    • You can do this on the computer (https://invitation.fei.org)

    3. Invitations are allocated all at the same time

    • In accordance with the Athlete's position in the Longines Rankings
    • In accordance with the Athlete's Event choices and prioritisation
    • In accordance with the quotas and availabilities at Events

 

THE TIMELINE:

   1. Athlete Selection Period

    • Athletes have 4 weeks to make, edit and/or change their choices for a given week
    • This is 8 to 5 weeks prior to the week of the event
    • Athletes can act at any time during this 4 week period
    • Athletes can do this on the computer (https://invitation.fei.org) or via the FEI SportManager App

   2. National Federation Confirmation week

    • Each week, NFs will need to confirm the choices of their Athletes for a given week
    • This is 4 weeks prior to the week of the event
    • You can change, add or remove choices of their Athletes
    • You can do this on the computer (https://invitation.fei.org)

   3. Allocation of Invitations

    • Invitations are distributed all at the same time
    • This will happen on the Monday at 00:02 GMT, 3 weeks prior to the week of the event
    • Invitations will automatically become accepted entries
    • Organising Committees can see the Invitations/Entries in the FEI Entry System at this time

VARIOUS CONCEPTS:

1. The addition of Horses when choosing Events

    • Horses can be added to each Event that is added to the wish list, you can search by using their name or FEI ID number
    • If you do not know which Horse will be at the Event, you can add a Horse "slot", this is a space for a Horse, which then needs to be filled at a later date
    • The system will inform you how many Horses you can enter per Event and will not allow you to enter more than the quota of the Event
    • You can change the Horses at any time during the Athlete Selection Period or NF Confirmation Week.

2. Other Events at the same Show

    • Many Events that will use the FEI Online Invitation System have lower level Events that happen at the same time
    • If the OC decides that Athletes can enter multiple Events at the same Show, you will be able to indicate this when adding the CSI5*, 4*, 3* or 2* Event to the list of choices
    • This will create an entry for this extra Event (e.g. CSIYH) which the Organising Committee can accept or decline accordingly
    • This provides you with information about which other Events your Athletes are interested in
