Hublot loves Polo! After the famous Hublot Polo Gold Cup in Gstaad and the Hublot Polo Cup in Ascona in Switzerland, the Sotogrande Polo Tournament in Spain and the Tang Polo Club Partnership in China, here is the first edition of the Hublot Prague Polo Cup in Czech Republic!

Lovers of polo, equestrianism and extraordinary events met on Saturday, September 13, at the Velká Chuchle horse-racing track to watch the finale of the second annual international Hublot Prague Polo Cup polo tournament. Four teams vied for the 2014 title: Hublot, Assental Group, Moser and the winning team Saffron & Eden Island Seychelles.

The winning team of this year’s Hublot Prague Polo Cup tournament received not only the prestigious title, but also special prizes donated by the tournament partners. In addition to a magnum-sized bottle of Veuve Clicquot, one of the best champagnes, and a crystal trophy from the Moser glassworks, the team received a gold medal that was made by Prague Mint especially for the tournament. The weather turned out well for event organisers, headed by Nina Popová, and over 600 fans of the “sport of kings”, as polo is also called, were in attendance. Polo is not only an extraordinarily attractive sport for spectators, but also a popular social event, where ladies can show off their most extravagant hats and head decorations. The prize for the most beautiful hat this year was awarded to Ms Naděžda Mitrofanova, who donned a creation by the Paris fashion house Dior.

“Preparations for the tournament are very demanding and last almost year-round. We focus on every detail, from stabling the horses, which includes their feed, trainer and vet, to selecting the best delicacies and flower arrangements,” reveals tournament organiser Nina Popová.“ More than 600 guests took part this year, which is an extraordinary success, with Prague now ranking among other European destinations where polo has become naturalised,” adds Nina Popová.
