Dubai, UAE, January 30, 2018:  The Maserati Polo Tour 2018 began with a thrilling start at the “Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz” that took place in the spectacular setting of the frozen lake of St. Moritz from 26th – 28th January 2018 and saw Team Cartier claim victory over Team Maserati  by 4.5 to 4, in a breathtaking final.

Over the three days of the tournament, the four polo teams played entertaining and high-class polo matches to the delight of over 15,000 spectators – setting a new tournament record. The spectacularly sunny  weather conditions transformed the polo field on the frozen lake of St. Moritz, with the captivating snow-capped mountains providing a picturesque backdrop. Among the guests of the renowned “Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz” were a number of VIP personalities such as England polo star Malcolm Borwick and Slalom World Champion Giorgio Rocca. The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz is the only high-goal polo tournament played on snow.

'We are proud to have kicked off in the breathtaking environment of St. Moritz for this year's Maserati Polo Tour, a spectacular event presenting both social and sporting highlights to our guests and spectators', said Alberto Cavaggioni, Head of Maserati Europe: “Today's match highlighted why we look forward to our annual International Polo Tour. The thrill of the competition and the power together with the agility of the horses are intrinsic values of our cars DNA”.

Enrico Roselli, CEO of La Martina, adds “La Martina has been part of the Snow Polo Tournament since its very beginning, over thirty years ago, and our excitement remains unchanged. Our brand is built on a genuine passion for polo and all of the components that make it a uniquely compelling sport: vigor, fair-play, discipline, hard work and a level of entertainment that never ceases to amaze us. Like every year, we are delighted to be a part of an unmissable event and to endorse such a passion showing it to the world for what it really is, in the breathtaking frame of St. Moritz”.

The ‘Maserati Polo Team' with Zhanna Bandurko/Raya Sidorenko (Handicap +0), Gerardo Mazzini  (Handicap +6), Hissam al Hyder (Handicap +6) and Robert Strom (Handicap +4) played in St. Moritz for the first time and received thrilling support and cheers from the audience throughout their performance. 

Besides the horsepower shown on the polo field on the lake of St. Moritz, Maserati had a fleet of vehicles with a different kind of horsepower on display in the polo village. Spectators could take a closer look at the new Ghibli MY18, which was launched in Summer 2017. The Ghibli MY18 with its trim lines GranLusso and GranSport performed a record number of test drives throughout the entire Polo weekend. 

The guests could also discover the Quattroporte and the Levante MY18 with their GranLusso and GranSport  trims  and advanced driving assistance systems. 

Maserati aficionados were also able to enjoy exclusive weekend packages ranging from a Maserati Snow&Ice Experience and the World-class Snow Polo with the Maserati Team to an exclusive Gala dinner. 

The “Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz” marked the exciting kick-off of the Maserati Polo Tour 2018 and emphasized the long-lasting involvement of Maserati in this sport. Accompanied by the successful partnership with the world's leading supplier of polo equipment, La Martina, the Maserati Polo Tour 2018 will bring many more highlights to this year's international polo scene. 

The official polo worn by Team Maserati during the competition is a product of the continuing collaboration between La Martina and Maserati. Made in pure cotton with a fleece lining, it can be purchased online from the La Martina e-commerce website.
