The iconic Spanish tournament is the fifth round of the #maseratipolotour 2016 - The first #maserati Store in Spain is now officially open

The 45th International Tournament at the Santa Maria #polo Club in Sotogrande has officially started and #maserati took centre stage as it made its debut as the Official Car of the Tournament as well as the title #sponsor of the Bronze Cup. The #maserati Bronze Cup Final will take place at the Santa Maria #polo Club in Sotogrande on August the 11th, 2016.

The opening match saw Dubai #polo Team beat Brunei by 16 to 12. Emir Rashid Albwardy’s team, led by Adolfo Cambiaso, the best #polo player in the world, had a really good start defending their title at the Santa María #polo Club.

The International #polo Tournament in Sotogrande is the third #event of the Grand Slam circuit, and its highly competitive nature attracts the best players and teams in the world. Last year over 88,000 visitors attended the #event, which is regarded both nationally and internationally as one of the largest of its kind, as well as a firm social fixture in the Spanish Summer calendar.

Although this is the first #polo tournament sponsored by #maserati in Spain, 2016 is the third year of the #maseratipolotour in collaboration with #lamartina: Sotogrande represents the fifth stage of the six planned for this year. The #maseratipolotour will end in September in Beijing with the China Open #polo. The #maserati 2016 #polo season lasts for nine months, covering three continents and six different time zones.

In Sotogrande #maserati has a strong presence within the different facilities of the Santa Maria #polo Club, with a lounge, two VIP boxes and a #maserati Store. Visitors of the Santa Maria #polo Club can also book a test drive: from the Ghibli executive saloon, to the Quattroporte flagship, as well as the first #maserati SUV, the all new Levante are all available to be test driven with Maserati’s team of professional drivers.

Maserati has unveiled exclusively at the Santa Maria #polo Club in Sotogrande the first #maserati Store in Spain: located in the main pavilion and open daily from 17: 00h to 22: 00h until August 28, the #maserati Store in Sotogrande offers a selection of accessories, clothes and memorabilia of the historic Italian car manufacturer.

Giulio Pastore, General Manager #maserati Europe, commented: "In the sport of #polo we find elements that we consider of great relevance, since they are a strong part of Maserati’s DNA: #polo means passion, performance, action and pursuit of perfection. Furthermore, this particular Tournament is a high octane #event that combines sport and fashion in an environment of great elegance, where the attending public shows great affinity with our brand. This is Maserati’s third year in this wonderful sport and #maserati could not miss the opportunity to be a fundamental part of one of the most prestigious events of the Grand Slam circuit ".
