Team #maserati wins the Snow Polo World Cup Tournament
2 February 2016 – The #maseratipolotour 2016 began with a thrilling start at the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz that took place on the frozen lake of St. Moritz from 29th - 31st January, where Team #maserati won the final at the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz.
Over the three day tournament, the four polo teams played entertaining and high-class polo matches to the delight of the 13,000 spectators. The favourable weather conditions transformed the polo field on the frozen lake of St. Moritz with the snow-capped Engadine mountains in the background providing a spectacular backdrop. Among the guests of the renowned Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz were a number of local and international VIP-personalities from business, politics and show business.
“We are delighted to have kicked off the #maseratipolotour with such a magnificent tournament” said Giulio Pastore, General Manager #maserati Europe: “There is something special about snow polo, that gives the thrill of the game an additional level of excitement, especially with such a unique atmosphere as here in St. Moritz.”
Enrico Roselli, CEO of La Martina, adds “It is always exciting for us to participate at the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz, since we were among the creators of the tournament over thirty years ago. To share such an experience with #maserati came naturally, given our similar backgrounds characterised by a burning passion for sports and excellent performances.”
Team #maserati with Team Captain Rommy Gianni (Italy, Handicap +1), Luciano Vazquez (Spain, Handicap +2), Dario Musso (Argentina, Handicap +7) and Frankie Menendes (Argentina, Handicap +6) received the support and cheers from the audience to win the finals of the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz over Team Cartier in a thrilling finish 5 to 4.
The demonstration of horsepower continued from the lake of St. Moritz to the Polo Village, where #maserati displayed the Ghibli Diesel. In addition, VIP guests had the pleasure of experiencing the entire #maserati saloon range during the shuttle service from the village centre of St. Moritz to the Polo Village, testing the Q4 all-wheel drive system.
Maserati aficionados were also able to enjoy exclusive weekend packages ranging from a snow golf tournament and test drives on snow and ice, to attending the world-class Snow Polo Tournament with the #maserati Team as well as the exclusive Snow Polo Gala dinner.
The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz marked the exciting kick-off of the #maseratipolotour 2016 and emphasised the long-lasting involvement of #maserati in the sport of polo. Accompanied by the successful partnership with the world's leading supplier of polo equipment, La Martina, the #maseratipolotour 2016 will bring many more highlights to this year’s international polo scene.
