July 7, 2017
After an exhaustive work alongside the Argentine Olympic Committee (COA), the Argentine Polo Association received the much awaited news: the Argentine Olympic committee has accepted polo to be present as an exhibition sport in the Junior Olympic Games, to be held in Buenos Aires from October 6-18, 2018. 

There will be around 4000 athletes (men and women) between 15 and 18 years of age (born between 2000 and 2003 inclusive) from 206 countries, in over 30 sports. After 81 years of Olympic absence, our sport is back!

The AAP is already working on the format of the tournament; it will be a historical event for polo in Argentina.
