Wellington, FL – January 9, 2020 – Equestrian Sport Productions (ESP) announces that they have introduced the exciting digital fan series, SAP Wellington League, for the 2020 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF). The SAP Wellington League lets spectators use the well-established Spectator Judging® app, the state-of-the art-mobile application which enables fans to get in the judge’s seat to create audience scores and rankings in real time. SAP, as the Official Analytics Sponsor of the FEI Dressage World Cup™ and the world’s largest enterprise application software company, has built upon the success of the Spectator Judging® app, making fans an integral part of the overall series. The winner of the SAP Wellington League receives a fantastic prize package to the 2020 FEI World Cup™ Dressage Final in Las Vegas in April.
The innovation of the SAP Wellington League relies on a new gamified ranking functionality, as users collect points by participating in Spectator Judging® throughout the 2020 AGDF during all seven FEI Grand Prix Freestyle competitions, both on-site and online. Participants will submit their scores and receive points based on how close they come to the audience average score. Additional points can be collected by judging more than one competition, up to four events.
A live leaderboard will be on the AGDF website, as well as on the Spectator Judging® app, to display the current ranking of League participants so fans can track their progression on the leaderboard and share their weekly results and overall standings.
At the conclusion of the AGDF circuit, the winner of the SAP Wellington League will receive a trip to the FEI World Cup™ Dressage Final in Las Vegas, which includes flights for two people (flight must originate in North America), one hotel room, and tickets for two people to the competition.
Bringing this innovation to Wellington is Black Horse One GmbH, the company that created the Spectator Judging® app and also provides the live scoring system, eDressage, for AGDF.
“I am incredibly excited and proud that this prestigious circuit, which is one of the most technologically advanced circuits in the world, will host the Spectator Judging® SAP Wellington League,” said Daniel Göhlen of Black Horse One GmbH. “SAP and my company Black Horse One GmbH work together to create an amazing interactive experience not only for the audience here on-site, but also for those watching the livestream at home. We are excited to receive everyone’s scores, which will be announced with the official judges’ scores after each ride. We will also create cool social media stats on our Instagram, @spectator_judging.”
