U.S. Polo Assn. supports the Queen’s Cup Pink Polo 2019 in partnership with Thailand Equestrian Foundation
U.S. Polo Assn. announces its support of THE Queen’s Cup Pink Polo 2019, an event to be held February 16 – 17 at Thai Polo & Equestrian Club. A fundraiser for The Queen Sirikit Center for Breast Cancer, the popular tournament is now entering its 11th year. Others lending their support this year include BMW Thailand and B. Grimm’s Dr. Harald Link, President of the Thailand Equestrian Federation. Nunthinee Tanner, Thailand’s first female polo player and initiator of Queen’s Cup Pink Polo, will also be front and center throughout the two-day tournament.
Situated about 90 minutes by car from Bangkok, with three full-sized, international-standard polo playing fields, clubhouses designed by Tanner and a Chukka Bar modeled after the famed polo bar at London’s Langham Hotel, Thai Polo & Equestrian Club is an ideal venue for this high-profile annual event.
“Queen’s Cup Pink Polo has grown in visibility and prominence with each passing year,” said Viroj Thavornwattanayong, CEO, Thailand-based BVC International. “In addition to raising much-needed funds for The Queen Sirikit Center, the tournament also builds awareness of female polo in Thailand, a sport growing in popularity.”
As co-sponsor of the event, U.S. Polo Assn. will serve as the official apparel provider. “We couldn’t be more honored to participate in this wonderful event and collaborate with our partner, BVC International, to raise money and awareness for this incredibly important cause,” said J. Michael Prince, President & CEO of USPA Global Licensing. “Breast cancer touches all of our lives, and we’re committed, through our Pink Polo initiative, to doing everything we can to help find a cure.”
