From 25-27 August the tenth edition of the Genghis Khan Polo Cup takes place at Genghis Khan Polo Club in Mongolia. Six international teams will compete against each other on three match days. The tournament will be played on Mongolian polo ponies – these are the horses Genghis Khan used to conquere large parts of Central Asia and northern China.

POLO+10 will also participate in the Genghis Khan Polo Cup with an own team and will fight for victory. Furthermore the tournament is part of the POLO+10 World Tour, which takes its participants to the most beautiful and exotic polo destinations of the world.
