U.S. Polo Assn., the official brand of the United States Polo Association (USPA), announced it will serve as official apparel and polo exhibition sponsor for the Wegmans Great Meadow Independence Day Celebration, to be held at Great Meadow in The Plains, Va. The event, which kicks off at 4pm, will benefit the Great Meadow Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving Great Meadow’s open space for current and future generations. U.S. Polo Assn. will provide custom designed performance jerseys for the team members participating in the exhibition match, and will promote the event on its website and social media channels.
“We are thrilled to take a lead sponsorship role for this family-friendly 4th of July event supporting the preservation of the Great Meadow Foundation, and to get the dynamic, fast-paced sport of polo in front of a fresh new audience,” said J. Michael Prince, President and CEO of USPA Global Licensing. “To combine a polo exhibition with live music, fireworks, great food and games for all ages on our nation’s birthday embodies, to me, the true spirit of America.”
Featuring live music from Eric Burgett, a rock wall, locally brewed craft beer and an obstacle course for the adults, as well as a petting zoo, pony rides and bouncy castle for the kids, this event promises fun for everyone. The main attraction – a dazzling display of fireworks – will be set to music and will begin at dusk.
“The 4th of July is the ultimate U.S. Polo Assn. holiday,” said Robert Puetz, CEO of USPA. “We’re all about putting an American stamp on this globally loved sport, and the Great Meadow celebration is a perfect showcase for our ultra-talented U.S. players.”
General Admission tickets are $35 per car in advance of the event, and $40 at the gate. For directions, schedule of events, ticket outlets and more information, visit www.greatmeadow.org.
