St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow: high-goal teams have been named


Once again some of the world’s best polo players are set to compete for points and prestige in St. Moritz. The four teams BMW, Cartier, Ralph Lauren and Sal. Oppenheim will be entering with team handicaps of 15 to 18 goals and are sure to delight the eager audience with polo at its highest level.


The patrons of this year’s teams are Andreas Knapp Voith (ESP) for BMW, Richard Davis (GBR) for Cartier, Michael Bickford (USA) for Ralph Lauren and Jonathan Munro Ford (AUS) for Sal. Oppenheim. With team handicaps of 15 to 18 goals, the 2012 St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow will once again be staged as a high-goal polo tournament, and thus remains the world’s highest-level polo tournament on snow.



St. Moritz Polo AG is committed to the Children Beyond charity project

On the occasion of the 28th St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow 2012, St. Moritz Polo AG takes part in the Children Beyond charity project – a fundraising music project by Tina Turner, Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay for the benefit of spiritual education projects for children and adolescents. A percentage of all the gala tickets’ proceeds are donated to the project. In addition, Ralph Lauren, team sponsor and official outfitter of this year’s tournament, will donate 20 per cent of the proceeds from all the articles sold during a drinks reception at its St. Moritz store. The donation will support a specific project with local relevance under the patronage of St. Moritz Polo AG.
