Polo returns to Baku
The Arena Polo World Cup, Azerbaijan, is a polo tournament unlike any other. As a unique hybrid of arena, snow and outdoor polo rules, spectators and players alike are treated to the thrills and spills one would expect from the polo field, with the added unparalleled hospitality of the Azeri people. This year, Baku residents and visitors from further afield will revel in the excitement of the Sixth Arena Polo World Cup Azerbaijan from 15 – 17 June at the Elite Horse & Polo Club, Baku.
Following their success at the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz, the tournament will be welcoming the well-known faces of the Azerbaijan Land of Fire team. The tournament will see a total of four international teams, made up of three players each, compete with a handicap of 10-12 goals.
Alongside the spectacular polo, Baku will host a series of social events for the guests and VIPs. Event organiser and creator of the renowned Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz, Reto Gaudenzi, has ensured the event will have his usual ‘touch of Gaudenzi magic’, with a star-studded Polo Night to round off the thrilling occasion. What’s more, ‘The Voice of Polo’ Jan-Erik Franck will be on hand to impart his knowledge of the sport and entertain the masses. For more information, or to book tickets, please click here
