The Longines Masters of Hong Kong presents the Shanghai Tang Polo Cup, a unique “Indoor Polo” exhibition tournament, featuring 4 elite professional players representing 4 great polo nations.
From February 19-21, the Longines Masters is bringing the best in polo to Hong Kong – players and horses – to the local community and a unique hospitality experience at the Longines Masters of Hong Kong, recognized as the world’s most prestigious Show Jumping Series.
Because the Longines Masters are so much more than Show Jumping, the main arena will showcase the Shanghai Tang Polo Cup, including three exhibition matches and one Captain’s Challenge where amateur players are invited to qualify to participate alongside professionals. The competition will take place as a form of arena polo – an ideal format for a thrill-seeking audience that has never watched polo before.
Four hugely talented professional players from 3 continents will take part in the Shanghai Tang Polo Cup including French No1 and six-goaler Brieuc Rigaux; Australian six-goaler Dirk Gould; Britain’s George Meyrick, a six-goaler; and Nico Curto, the Argentinean five-goaler very involved in polo sport in Asia.
Two amateur players will be offered the unique opportunity to team up with a pro and play in front of the Longines Masters of Hong Kong crowd and VIPs, in the Captain’s Challenge. To qualify, 8 players will take part in a qualifying shoot out.
The action promises to be fast and prestigious – an unmissable event.
