Davos to host the first ever City Snow Polo Tournament
The first ever city snow polo tournament will take place in the highest city in Europe, Davos, Switzerland, from 25-28 February 2016. The inaugural event, hosted by InterContinental Davos, Destination Davos Klosters and Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will have polo players and ponies descend on the city to make up four international teams, representing London, Davos, New York and Zurich.
Two games of polo will take place in the centre of Davos each afternoon with Thursday 25 February reserved primarily for the residents of Davos to watch free of charge. Exclusive VIP Tickets will be available for the remainder of the weekend with General Admission tickets also going on sale in the New Year.
With some exciting sponsors already on board including InterContinental Davos, Destination Davos Klosters, SWISS, Lanson, La Martina and more to follow, the new addition to the snow polo circuit could rival the glitz and glam of St Mortiz, which is scheduled for the month before (29 – 31 January).
Reto Branschi, CEO of Destination Davos Klosters, said, “We’re so excited that Davos has been selected to host such an exciting tournament. People have seen Davos as a top winter destination for years and we’re thrilled we can give something else to entice them back to our beautiful alpine city and Snow Polo ticks all the boxes – sport, glamour and excitement!”
