Miami Beach Polo World Cup Returns to the Shores of SoBe
Saddle up for a weekend of beach polo fun on the shores of SoBe. White sands, blue skies, and Miami Beach breezes form the quintessential backdrop to the athletes competing in this year’s Miami Beach Polo World Cup. The annual tournament is being held at the 22nd Street beach entrance, only a five minute walk from Sagamore. Take the short walk north along the beach to catch a match of the “most notable and most prestigious beach polo event in the world.”
Eight international teams compete for the coveted trophy. The 2019 champion polo player roster features players from the United States, Argentina, Germany, Peru, Italy, and Switzerland competing in games of two three-player teams as they battle it out in four seven-minute periods of play. The weekend of activities includes high-goal matches, a pop-up retail village, and offsite events that fuse sports, luxury, and much more to create an epic weekend.
We’ve rounded up the hottest polo events that are open to the public.
