Last weekend, the Argentine Day Polo Cup was held at Thai Polo & Equestrian Club, in Pattaya, Thailand. Four teams partook in the tournament, which was held over two action-packed days.
The most notable aspect of the tournament was Argentina’s presence in Thailand, and the positive relationships between the two countries. The tournament was a celebration —Argentine and Thai flags lined the club— and many Argentine brands, that are based in Thailand, shared their products at the event. It was a typical Argentine weekend, with plenty of meat and wine, which aimed to promote polo and the huge industry behind it.
To further emphasise the bond between the countries, the name of each team referenced the spectacular travel destinations that can be experienced in the South American country. To conclude, the final was followed by a traditional tango show and a delicious asasdo.
