La Martina in association with the Argentinean Embassy in the UAE and the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club are organizing the “La Martina Argentina Polo Cup” from April 19 to 23.
Announcing details of the La Martina Argentina Polo Cup 2010, His Excellency Ruben Eduardo Caro, Ambassador of Argentina in the UAE said: “Polo is an elegant and martial sport where loyalty, strength and intelligence are given equal weightage. Class and character distinguish polo players within, but above all, outside the field. Two hundred years ago Argentina chose its own destiny and we are marking that today with this event. We are proud to organise this tournament along with La Martina which we think is putting immense efforts to popularise this game in the UAE. Dubai is qualified to host world class polo games and it enjoys a great sense of hospitality to welcome all the international teams coming to compete here in a sporting ambience, reflecting the great spirit of the UAE and Argentina.”
Ayman Hanbali, Marketing Manager, La Martina, said: “It is a matter of pride for La Martina to co-organise this event with the Argentinean Embassy in the UAE. The tournament is evolving into one of the most important and prestigious polo tournaments in the region. We are also happy that the ground at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian club meets the global specifications.”
Ershad Ahmed, Sales and Marketing Manager of Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club playing host to this event said: “We are very excited to work with La Martina and the Argentinean Embassy to host this prestigious event. We noticed pleasantly that the game of polo is attracting growing interest in the UAE. We anticipate this tournament to get a wider response and anticipate a great number of spectators to watch the games.”
The “La Martina Argentina Polo Cup” will be held under the rules and regulations of the Hurlingham Polo Association, the governing body of the sport in the UK and Ireland.
