Traditionally referred to as the ‘Sport of Kings’, after much anticipation, the original Beach Polo Cup is set to return to its roots on the sands of Dubai this 19th and 20th of April, 2013.
Arguably the world’s grandest and most entertaining sport, Beach Polo adds an electrifying dimension by swapping ‘turf for surf’ as players battle it out on the sands of one of Dubai’s iconic beach locations.
Founded in 2004 by mamemo productions, the Beach Polo Cup has since grown tremendously, making its way to more than 30 cities all over the world, including Miami (USA), Ibiza (Spain), Cabo San Lucas (Mexico), Riviera (Mexico), Rimini (Italy), Poole (England), as well as soon to be, Tianjin (China).
During a recently held signing ceremony, Sam Katiela, Beach Polo Cup organizer and mamemo productions’ Managing & Creative Director, proudly announced Julius Baer, the leading Swiss private banking group, as the presenting and team sponsor for this year’s event. Now officially named the “Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013”.
Remy Bersier, Member of the Executive Board of Julius Baer, and present at the signing ceremony commented: “The sponsorship activities of Julius Baer share the same goals towards which we strive every day as a business enterprise: to consider the individual needs of our clients. That is why we support carefully selected sports and cultural events that represent innovation, consciousness of tradition and the exceptional quality of performance. We are delighted to showcase our commitment to the game and the region in our latest partnership with mamemo productions to launch the “Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013”.
Featuring an invitation only Exclusive Players Night on the 18th of April and two days of heart pounding tournaments on the 19th and 20th, Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013 will celebrate the event’s success by bringing an entourage of professional polo players from around the world as well as recognised personalities and celebrities from the region.
“Dubai is continually being stamped on the global map as a world class destination”, says Sam Katiela. “Since gaining international momentum and after the success of previous years, it’s now time to bring Beach Polo back to Dubai!”
Bringing world class horsemanship, nail biting pace and international glamour to the shores of Dubai, the legendary tournament, under the new name, Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013, promises to be a weekend to remember.
