Amazing people from all over the word joined Francesco Mitrano, President of Monte-Carlo Polo Federation at the 10 years anniversary celebrations last Sunday 30 April 2023, at Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club (https://www.poloclubdubai.com).
A day of Polo Matches on the field with three awesome teams to showcase to the VIP guests this exciting sport, along with kids teams to open the celebrations. In the meanwhile, VIP people, influencers, authorities and representatives from royal families enjoy in the Palermo Terrace the players’ match and networking in one of the most exclusive environment in the UAE.
Monte-Carlo Polo Club is the first club dedicated to this discipline in the Principality of Monaco, from an idea of Francesco Mitrano, the Founder and the President of the Monaco Polo Federation (https://montecarlopolofederation.com/). Francesco, passionate Polo players since ever, after moving to Monaco many years ago, thought that Monte Carlo was the perfect place for a glamorous sport event like Polo. That’s how it all started, so he created the Monaco Polo Federation. So, the first Polo event was held there in 2013, and after the big success of this first edition the Federation International of Polo decided that Monaco should have its own official representative, ambassador and federation. This first edition of the Monte-Carlo Polo Cup, in 2013, was a top international tournament with the auspices of the Monaco top authorities, and strengthened the position of Polo within the Monaco community by creating the “Fédération de Polo de la Principauté de Monaco”.
Year after year, since the launch of the Monte Carlo Polo Federation this event continues to grow and gain popularity. It attracts a number of very high-profile guests, including royalties, ministers, ambassadors and foreign dignitaries, as well as distinguished partners, sponsors, patrons, committees, and members of the Monte Carlo Polo Club, along with prominent businesspeople, socialites and celebrities. Famous brands like Cartier, Audemars Piguet, Lamborghini, Maserati, U.S. Polo Assn, Barclays, Versace, La Martina, Radio Monte Carlo, EFG Bank, Gremi International, Giraudi Group, Gramaglia, De Grisogono, Royal Salut, SBM, Casinò de Montecarlo, Rampoldi and Laurent-Perrier champagne sponsored and supported the events in the past years.

The Saudi Polo Federation supervises the Saudi teams, organizes and directs the Polo activities throughout the Kingdom, and represents the Kingdom internationally in conferences, meetings, tournaments, and matches related to polo activities.
