Message From The GM Of Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club
Welcome to the FIP Fortune Heights Snow Polo World Cup 2017!
It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome all of you, international polo teams, as well as officials and polo fans who have come from around the world joining us for the sixth edition of our annual signature polo extravaganza featuring top-class polo, haute cuisine, and superb entertainment at our exclusive location in Tianjin.
Snow polo originated in Switzerland back in 1985 when the world premiere of a polo tournament on snow took place on the frozen lake of the renowned ski resort of St. Moritz. Nowadays, polo on snow is played across the globe from Aspen in the US and Cortina in Italy to our Metropolitan Polo Club – the birthplace of snow polo in China hosting the most prestigious snow polo tournament in Asia fetching the highest prize money.
This year, we are going to witness a fierce battle for Team Hong Kong China to defend their crown with Team England. The comeback of the strong rivals Team Argentina and Team USA are both the variable in the games, making it hard to predict the result. Then, there are Australia and South Africa creating potentials for upsets and excellent games.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Federation of International Polo, Hong Kong Polo Development and Promotion Federation, and the Buenos Aires Opera Show for their partnership and support over the years as well as our media partners and sponsors for placing their trust in us and once again working with us for making this tournament possible and a success.
May you have fun and a memorable lifetime experience!
See you on the polo field.
See you around the Club!
General Manager of Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club
