THE EVENT (R18)
The Heineken Urban Polo is the closest you can get to the sport of Kings and is the event of the summer, showcasing a fusion of sport and music in the heart of city, and right at your door step. Polo and Music collide in a way that has never been seen in New Zealand before.
The Heineken Urban Polo is a licensed R18 event.
Polo, the sport of kings, is played against an urban backdrop of New Zealand’s major cities for the first time. As well as witnessing the skill and pace of some of the world’s best polo players, the Heineken Urban Polo also features a not-to-be-missed music line-up – guests have so far enjoyed the likes of Kilter and Miami Horror and equally awesome acts are planned for future events.
Heineken Urban Polo is played on a significantly smaller playing field, this works to bring the game as close to spectators as possible, so close in fact that they can high-five the players as they ride past!
The day will include two adrenaline-filled games of Urban Polo at each event enabling spectators the chance to view some of the world’s best polo players from the four teams.
The Auckland event is taking place in the Shore Road Reserve in Parnell. This inner city location boasts stunning views over the harbor which will serve as a perfect backdrop to the fashion and sporting prowess on display.
