For the third time the HPA Gaucho International Polo event will take place at the London O2-Arena on May 21. Some of the world’s best polo players will compete in this prestigious tournament in three international matches.
In the first game of the day Merchant Hub will fight against Hedonism Wines, followed by a competition between the teams Royale Salute Scotland and Maserati Mexico. The main event will be the last match, in which Jamie Morrison (+7) with his team IG England will meet his rival Nacho Figueras (+7) with the team Cheval des Andes Argentina. Last years Gaucho International Polo was won by England against Argentina, with only one goal in advance.
The event will be accompanied by the music of the Argentine band Tanghetto. Their music, which blends tango and electronic music, is called Electrotango and will fill the gaps between the matches. The hosts expect many spectators, after last years tournament attracted more than 8,000 visitors.
