Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi to host ‘Polo at the Palace’ two day tournament in November
Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi has announced it will host Coutts ‘Polo at the Palace’, a two-day polo tournament which will take place on the November 23 and 24. The tournament is inspired by popular London event ‘Polo in the Park’, which has pioneered the city polo series by bringing the classic sport to a contemporary cosmopolitan audience (restricted to 1.000 guests per day).
Set amid the grandeur of Emirates Palace’s 100 hectares of private gardens, a custom-built polo field situated on the West Lawn (one third smaller than a regular polo field) will draw the audience into the very centre of the action.
Four teams representing some of the world’s leading centres of finance and fashion – Team Abu Dhabi (sponsored by Coutts); Team London (sponsored by Van Cleef & Arpels), Team Milan (sponsored by Maserati), and Team Buenos Aires – will battle it out for the Coutts Polo Cup over two days of unmissable action.
And, in keeping with the glamour of this star-studded event, iconic British designer Stella McCartney will unveil her newest collection in a one-off show in these palatial surroundings – her first fashion show in the United Arab Emirates.
