Scottsdale Polo Championships

Heineken Expands Party Tent at Polo Event

Heineken may be known for brewing America’s highest quality and favorite pale lager, but equally as satisfying, its ability to help throw the biggest polo party in the country at the 3rd Annual Scottsdale Ferrari-Maserati Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013.

With space for more than 600 people, The Heineken Red Star Corral, A Polo Day Club features an outdoor patio, all-day D.J., and an on-site after party until 7:00 p.m. There is no more exciting place to watch the world’s hottest and sexiest polo players take to the field for an afternoon of non-stop polo action on November 2nd from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Heineken used a similar party tent at the Long Beach Grand Prix.  Check out the body surfing from last year’s Polo Party.

Here’s the quick rundown of the festivities – On Saturday, November 2nd, gates open at 10:00 a.m. for the Scottsdale Ferrari-Maserati Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower. The first match will pit America’s high school champions, Work to Ride, against the country’s 2012 college champions, the University of Virginia.

The next match, at 1:00 p.m., will feature a Battle of the Sexes with a Women’s All-Star Team vs. Arizona Polo Club (men).

At 3:00 p.m., the U.S. Military Polo Team will square off against the Clogau Wales Polo Team (United Kingdom). Jeff Hall, one of the best polo players in the world, and one of just a few top-rated Americans, will be captaining the U.S. Military team.

But heart-stopping polo action isn’t the only feature at WestWorld on Nov. 2nd. Attendees will also enjoy a sneak preview of the 2014 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and see some serious horsepower with a preview of the world-famous Barrett-Jackson 2014 Collector Car Auction along with local car clubs lining the field. This year will also feature the 2013 Arizona Porsche Concours d’Elegance car show.

And if you can’t wait until Saturday, join us Friday, November 1st, when gates open at 3:00 p.m. for a sneak preview of the Championships and a fashion show. There will be an all-star match at 4:00 p.m. and then a 5:30 p.m. introduction of the players. It will culminate with a 6:00 p.m. Sunset Equestrian Fashion Show presented by Phoenix Fashion Week.
