World-Class Al Habtoor Polo Club Hosts Annual Gold Cup Tournament

WEST PALM BEACH, FL and DUBAI, UAE, Feb 29, 2024 - (ACN Newswire) - U.S. Polo Assn., the official brand of the United States Polo Association (USPA), served as the Official Apparel Partner of the Dubai Polo Gold Cup 2024. This world-renowned polo tournament was hosted at the iconic Al Habtoor Polo Club in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) from Feb. 6-24, 2024.

In collaboration with the Aydinli Group, U.S. Polo Assn.'s brand partner in the Middle East, the classic, sport-inspired brand provided performance jerseys for multiple teams, branded apparel for all on-site staff, and gifts to the finalists including branded leather duffle bags and watches.

The Dubai Polo Gold Cup was an unforgettable two-week tournament ending with the final game between two strong teams, Habtoor Polo and Dubai Wolves By CAFU, that fought to have their name etched into the Gold Cup trophy. Ultimately, Habtoor Polo won the cup with a final score of 11-10. The event offered spirited sports fans and generous sponsors the ability to watch the highest-rated polo in the UAE while also enjoying international musical entertainment, delicious cuisines, and retail shops.

"U.S. Polo Assn. is proud to once again support the iconic Dubai Polo Gold Cup as the Official Apparel Sponsor in one of the great venues for polo in the UAE," said J. Michael Prince, President and CEO of USPA Global, which manages the multi-billion-dollar U.S. Polo Assn. brand. "This region is a key market for U.S. Polo Assn., and we are honored to highlight the sport of polo along with our global, sport-inspired brand in front of so many sports fans and consumers in the Middle East."

U.S. Polo Assn.'s popularity in the UAE has grown since the launch of the first brick-and-mortar store in March 2012 at the Dubai Marina Mall. Available to consumers in the region on all sales channels, the classic, sport-inspired lifestyle brand currently has 10 stores in the UAE with Lals Group, U.S. Polo Assn.'s UAE Partner, with plans to launch additional locations in 2024. Globally, the U.S. Polo Assn. brand is in 190 countries and has global retail sales of more than $2.4 billion.

"We are proud to represent U.S. Polo Assn. in the UAE, and the Dubai Polo Gold Cup is the perfect opportunity to connect our authentic global brand with the sport of polo in Dubai," said Seref Safa, Chairman of the Board of Aydinli Group, the Middle Eastern and Eastern European partner for U.S. Polo Assn. "This tournament hosts some of the best polo teams and ponies in the world, creating an exciting mix of top-class sportsmanship and glamour for event attendees."

The Dubai Polo Gold Cup was founded in 2009 by His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai. This tournament is now one of the most prestigious events on the international polo calendar, on par with world-class events held in Argentina, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The Al Habtoor Polo Club was established in 2000 by Mohammed Al Habtoor, who played a pivotal role in the development of the Dubai Polo Gold Cup and was also a player in the 2024 tournament.
