Why Gold Cup Polo, Dubai?

Cultural influences work both ways - the west gave Dubai its skyscrapers, shopping malls, fast cars and bling... in return, The Middle East gave the rest of the world coffee, shawarma, oil and the most magnificent horses on the planet. 

And what did we do with those fine Arabian horses? We trained them to be ridden so we can hit balls through goals with sticks and called it The Sport of Kings!

Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, The Dubai Polo Gold Cup now attracts the highest echelons of society - famous personalities, businessmen and the rich and glamorous. 

What makes Dubai's Polo the Gold Standard?

By day you can watch the leading players from Argentina, England, UAE and their beasts working in perfect unison to win the prestigious Gold Cup. 

By night, fine hospitality allows you to dine in VIP stands, bring your friends for a picnic on the lush lawns, or (in the ultimate blend of Middle East meets West) party to bling beats in the bedouin-style tents...

If you’re a Gulf VIP, a mover and shaker, or a Sheikh - The Dubai Polo Gold Cup is the place to be seen this April.

In short:

  • Watch The Sport of Kings with the Rulers of Dubai
  • Bet on the finest Arabian horses 
  • One of the finest events in the Middle East's social calendar
  • Watch from VIP stands and picnic on the lush lawns
  • Party to bling beats in the bedouin-style tents
