I was there and all friends and influencer from Dubai attended the event.
A season opening event that would revive the synergy between the UAE’s polo teams, sports clubs and supporting brands. After the challenging two years of pandemic the Lan To Capital Luxury Polo Cup is the right celebration to kick off the season.
The action-packed matches in the Luxury Polo Cup, junior matches for the 9 to 15-year-olds on both days, horse archery show and a gala dinner on the last day, at Emaar Hospitality Group’s Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club, in collaboration with Monte Carlo Polo Federation.
Francesco Mitrano, President of Monte Carlo Polo Federation, said: “I am truly honoured to organise this event that reflects the goal of Monte Carlo Polo Federation to showcase this quintessential sport to all ages. This is the second time that we have partnered with Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club and we want to thank them for such great work and giving our organisation an opportunity to introduce polo to Dubai’s most exclusive groups.”
The sport is unique as it creates a perfect bonding between the player and the polo ponies, who play a bigger role as 60-70 per cent of the job is done by them and the rest by the players. In that backdrop, the new season will be aiming to take the sport to greater heights.
Lan Tschirky, CEO of Lan To Capital, said: “Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club is the most exclusive club in Dubai and we couldn’t be more proud to have worked closely with them and Monte Carlo Polo Federation in jumpstarting long-term sustainable relationships through the sport of polo. Both of them are aligned with the vision of Lan To Capital to cater to the broad range of both new and professional talents, while also innovating platforms such as the Luxury Polo Cup to form strong-minded communities through sports and events.”
