As was the case last year, POLO+10 is once again present at the most important tournament in the polo world – the Palermo Open. The feedback from Argentina was overwhelmingly positive last year and reassured that we want to offer a communicative platform for the polo community that also comprises international editions, not just those that focus on European regions. But this is just one aspect of our current plans. Plenty of new countries are just starting to embark on their polo careers, including Kazakhstan and Monaco, and we have devoted some space in this edition to highlighting these countries.
We published the first edition of our POLO+10 magazine at the start of 2004. Back then, we confronted some doubt as some in Germany and Europe did not consider the sport important enough for it to have its own publication. Ten years later, we are all better informed – including the naysayers. For our tenth anniversary, we would like to thank you for your generous support, friendly communication and your many new visions about the sport! POLO+10 has made friends and partners across the world and follows the sport from an unrivalled international perspective. As usual we look forward to your feedback and comments in future and hope you enjoy reading the current issue of POLO+10 World.

Palermo – The Mecca of the Sport of Polo: Palermo. Not Sicily, but rather a district in the city of Buenos Aires. It is here that the Club Hipico Militar is located. Of two fields, field one is known affectionately as “The Cathedral” to those passionate lovers of polo, Palermo is to polo as Wimbledon is to tennis or St. Andrews is to golf. It is the site of the most coveted tournament in polo, the Argentine Open. This year will be the 120th year of the tournament. It may come with some unusual surprises.
