Taking place at the Dubai’s Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club, The Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series is comprised of five tournaments namely the Silver Cup, Polo Masters Cup, Standard Chartered Gold Cup, Dubai Challenge Cup and Dubai Cup.

The final day of the Dubai Open kicks off on Friday March 6 from noon onwards, and there will be plenty of fun-filled activities for everyone to enjoy.
