It’s only fitting that one of the world’s most acclaimed arena polo competitions will return to the United States in 2017 and take place within a globally recognized automotive lifestyle event.
The Townsend Cup, in which teams from England and America have been competing since 1928, will take place at Barrett-Jackson, January 14-15, 2017. Encompassing over 74 acres at WestWorld of Scottsdale, Barrett-Jackson is attended by over 350,000 people per year and routinely sells over $100 million in collector cars. Within the facilities used by Barrett-Jackson is the Equidome, a top indoor equestrian arena with seating for 4,000 spectators.
The two-day polo event is organized by the United States Polo Association, The Arizona Polo Association, Being The Change (a Phoenix-based polo club) and the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships, and will present four matches.
