WELBECK JOIN INTERNATIONAL POLO TOURNAMENT AT THE 02

Press release   •   Mar 09, 2012 15:15 GMT

 

Welbeck Group have become Official Team Sponsors of Ireland for The Gaucho International Polo at London’s O2 arena, uniting high-octane polo with live world famous music to produce a unique event never seen before in Britain.

Following the triumphant inaugural year in 2011, Gaucho International Polo has now evolved into a superb occasion. The 2012 event will consist of two international arena polo matches merged with exclusive performances from Grammy award winning band, Bajofondo. 

Bajofondo will open and play throughout the tournament, creating a thrilling blend of polo and music.  The matches will see Scotland taking on Welbeck Group’s Ireland and culminate in a titanic clash between England and Argentina.

Gaucho International Polo will be a true Argentine festival, with tastings from some of the country’s finest wine producers. There will also be a fun and charitable twist to the event in the form of “The White Jeans Party” where, for every guest who arrives at the event wearing a pair, a pound will be donated to the BFF (British Forces Foundation).

 Welbeck Group Marketing Manager, Nick Evans said of the sponsorship:

“We are delighted to become a Team Sponsor. Gaucho International Polo is such a prestigious event and we are proud to be partners. It is an exciting opportunity to take our clients to the 02 for such a quality occasion. We also support the British Forces and shall encourage all our clients to wear white jeans to raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause.”

Martin Williams, Operations Director of Gaucho said; “'Gaucho are excited to create a unique event combining complimentary wine tasting, Grammy Award winning music and international polo. Based on last year’s event there's a lot of interest in the City for this event therefore we're delighted that Welbeck Group, IG Index and City A.M are partners.'
