Edge Brewing Barcelona Announced as Presenting Sponsor of Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ CSIO 4*

Saugerties, New York (January 16, 2015): HITS, Inc. is pleased to announce Edge Brewing Barcelona as presenting sponsor of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ at HITS Post Time Farm in Ocala, Florida, February 10-15, 2015. The international team show jumping event will now be known as the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™, presented by Edge Brewing Barcelona. 

Prize money in excess of $400,000 will be offered in the FEI jumper division throughout the week, including $200,000 in the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup.

“It’s great to have an international company, Edge Brewing Barcelona, sponsoring this event, and we’re excited to bring the name to Ocala” said HITS President and CEO Thomas Struzzieri.

Edge Brewing was established in Barcelona, Spain, in 2013 by two Americans, Scott and Alan, who were eager to bring the American craft beer revolution to Europe, and brought a brewery in Barcelona’s suitably edgy Poblenou district. There, they combined finely engineered American brewing equipment, the best ingredients available, and many years of brewing experience to create premium quality craft brews. Edge Brewing Barcelona became such a favorite there they decided to export their craft beer back to the Unites States in 2015.

About Nations Cup

The Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup CSIO4*, presented by Edge Brewing Barcelona, in Ocala, is the only Nations Cup Final qualifier in the United States.
