About the tournament

The Champions Cup, an 8-goal tournament that has been hosted at Empire Polo Club since 2011, is back again for 2017 with a great team line up. This tournament format is especially unique as there is major prize money on the line. Teams pay an entry fee which the club matches. Unlike other money games, the only deciding factor is the final score. For 2017, a pot of $40,000 is available to be won. The victors garner seventy-five percent of the total prize money available while the runner-up collects the remaining twenty-five percent. A unique feature considering the majority of prize money tournaments are geared towards a mid- to high-goal level of polo. 2016 defending champions Lockton are slated to appear in the final again, hoping to take home the prize money and Champions Cup title.

The Venue

Empire Polo Club

Empire Polo Club, situated in the Coachella Valley in Indio, California, is the self-proclaimed “Disneyland” of polo in the United States. Boasting one of the most exquisite and elaborate grounds, the club aims to impress players and spectators alike with a polo experience like no other. Offering a competitive polo season mid-December through March with public Sunday matches and a seasonal polo school, the club operates year-round hosting numerous non-polo events, such as music festivals—including, but not limited to, the famous Coachella music festival.

Established in 1987, the club has steadily grown over nearly three decades to include 12 grass polo fields, an indoor polo arena with stadium, two exercise tracks, on-site stabling for 650+ horses and the only fully-lit grass polo field in the United States for night polo. Equine amenities aside, the club houses not one, but two restaurants—The Tack Room Tavern Restaurant & Bar and Polo Pizza Co.—as well as “The Date Shed” a former date packing facility turned nightclub and live music venue.
