If there is one game that should not be missed out on, it is definitely the one where the France team will encounter an official Argentine selection next May 22nd, as part of the 20th anniversary of the Polo Club of Chantilly.
For the first time in its history, the French team displays a 21 goals level, with Brieuc Rigaux (h6), Pierre Henri Ngoumou, Clément Delfosse and Patrick Paillol (h5). Today, France has become the second best European national selection behind Great Britain and world’s eight. These French players will now play and win foreign tournaments where they enter the competition as professionals.
For the first time, these four best French players will team up to face a national Argentine selection as equivalent level. The Asociación Argentina de Polo, Argentina’s Polo Federation, will select an official team to play a great moment of French polo history, to live on the courtside on May 22, at 14h30. This historical match will be preceded by a parade representing all active equestrian activities of Chantilly: Polo, showjumping (the LGCT leg will take place the next week-end), races (Chantilly hosts this year the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe), driving, hunting and the equestrian art with the Museum of Horse.
