Copperline Farms and 901210 Polo to decide Outback Cup

Copperline Farm and 90210 Polo are through the championship match of the Outback Cup, following their respective wins agains BTA and Tonkawa, in the semifinals that took place on Wednesday April 3, a the USPA-owned National Polo Center in Wellington, Florida, United States. Previously known as the Outback Invitational, the contest was played at Patagones for the first time in 2022, as a part of the Wellington Polo Tour. The Outback Cup is the fourth qualifying stage of a series of tournaments – Joe Barry Memorial Cup, Ylvisaker Cup and Iglehart Cup, and will culminate in the NPC 16-Goal Championship, on April 14, at the National Polo Center.

It’s worth to notice that the winners of the three previous legs were Forbes Plunkett (Joe Barry Memorial Cup), Clearwater (Ylvisaker Cup) and BTA (Iglehart Cup), with each winning team moving on to the final event. Should a team win more than one qualifier, that team will automatically advance to the NPC 16-Goal Championship final.
