George FM presents Heineken Urban Polo
Polo in the city, first of its kind in New Zealand
We are excited to announce the launch of Heineken Urban Polo, the first event of its kind in New Zealand, giving Kiwis the chance to watch a one-day polo tournament in the heart Auckland and Wellington.
In February 2017, the world-class sport of polo will be played within the urban surroundings of Auckland and Wellington. The traditional game of polo will have a fresh new format exhibiting a faster, more spectacular variant of the game.
To accommodate the urban setting, the format of the sport will be adapted to a smaller field with simplified rules to make the action just as exciting to watch as it is to play.
Each competing team will have three players, one less than traditional polo.
According to Simon Wilson, Urban Polo Director, these modern adaptations improve the overall spectacle of the game, with the sport often being paralleled to the Twenty20 and Sevens Rugby of the polo world.
Ian Galloway Park, Wellington 11th February
Shore Road Reserve, Auckland 25th February
