Did you know that polo attracts some of the most highly educated and affluent people of any sport? It is international and, in a country where equestrian sports dominate, polo is not only growing in popularity but is being heavily invested in. It also attracts major media interest plus sponsors from across sectors, think Cartier, Land Rover and Jack Wills.
Being a sponsor of the Dubai Polo Academy is something pretty special. Not only are you associating yourself with the sport at grass roots level, you are entering a world synonymous with success, luxury, excellence and friendly competitiveness.
And as such give you an opportunity to establish your niche within polo, and its social fabric at a player’s entry point into the sport. Only an Academy can give your brand exposure at that point.
