Dear Beach Polo Friends
When we take a look back 12 years ago, the city’s skyline was starting to rise from the sands and its beautiful coastline served as an idyllic calling card for visitors from every corner of the planet. It was on these pristine beaches that the Beach Polo Cup was born.Till today, Dubai continues to boom and bloom in equal measure – a shining beacon of the Gulf’s civil and economic modernity and so does the Beach Polo Cup with its great venue here at Skydive Dubai. Located between the Dubai Marina – a living, breathing embodiment of Dubai’s spectacular transformation – and the enchanting Arabian Gulf this truly unique venue is the perfect home for our tournament.
We are grateful for the patronage of His Highness Sheik Hamdan bin Mohammed al Maktoum, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Dubai this second consecutive year; it is proof of the high standard that we always aim for as we share in our way the image of this great city as an international sporting destination.
A warm welcome to the Polo fans who have travelled from near and far to be part of this year’s tournament. Your support is one of the many reasons why our event continues to go from strength-to-strength and your cheers help motivate the players to aspire for our coveted trophy.
We would also like to extend our gratitude to the teams and players. Without your efforts, this event would simply not be possible. In this majestic Skydive Dubai arena, our modern day ‘gladiators’ battle with levels of energy and passion befitting of these sands. They are the true heroes.
A very special appreciation goes to all of our sponsors and event partners for their involvement and for making this sporting spectacle a true success year after year. We are very proud to welcome back a majority of our sponsors and partners from previous years and also welcome the new additions to the Beach Polo Cup Dubai family
Last but not least we would like to express our gratitude to the Dubai Sports Council, Dubai Police and Dubai Civil Defense, for all their continuous assistance and full support.
This event will reflect the UAE as an innovative & creative hub in terms of sport excellence and Dubai as the wonderful and inspiring city we all call home!
