The Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2016 presented by Cadillac closed the UAE polo season to rave reviews from local and international spectators as Team Cadillac successfully defended their title in a thrilling match.
Beach Polo is internationally credited as a brainchild of mamemo, having been first played in its current form on the sands of Dubai UAE in 2004. Since then, it has spawned similar tournaments in more than 33 cities around the world. The 2016 edition of the Beach Polo Cup Dubai was held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman, Dubai Sports Council for the second consecutive year.
Sam Katiela, Beach Polo Cup founder and organizer said, ‘We are privileged to be given great opportunities by the government of the UAE to visualize our dreams in an atmosphere of innovation and creativity. The Beach Polo is our way of paying back to the country by staging a world class sporting concept that raises the nation’s significance on the world map.”
“Our event partners – our peers in the Middle East events industry – have been amazing in realizing our concept and design. We are also thankful for the sponsors, who have stepped out with us. We have so much more activities parallel to the sport because of their belief in the impact of beach polo to the community and the market.”
“Despite the storm-like conditions that hit Dubai and delayed our schedule by 24 hours – not an easy decision to make – we were able to turn things around. In the process, we created the very first “Super Sunday”, where the Arabian night sky gave us our perfect backdrop for an amazing final evening of polo action and great entertainment!”
