NETJETS PACIFIC COAST OPEN

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

Standing at a striking height of five feet, the glorious silver and gold trophy for the Pacific Coast Open is a dazzling sight. Crowned with an eagle supporting a globe and adorned with semiprecious stones, the trophy is mounted on a redwood base, featuring side panels depicting lively polo scenes. Initially titled the All American Polo Trophy, the cup was commissioned in 1908 by friends and members of the Coronado Country Club in Southern California.

Throughout the late 1920s until the early 1940s, the tournament was hosted by numerous clubs throughout California. After World War II, the Pacific Coast Open moved to the posh and glamorous Beverly Hills Polo Club until 1952, when it took residency at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club where it remains today. In contemporary history, the competition has been led by Klentner Ranch, earning the prestigious title in 2018, 2020 and 2021, when the team capped off a spectacular undefeated high-goal season.

In 2022, L.I.N.Y. and Farmers & Merchants Bank (FMB) battled in front of an electric sold-out stadium. Early energy provided L.I.N.Y. (Santino Magrini, Paco "Paquito" de Narvaez Jr., Kristos “Keko” Magrini, Poroto Cambiaso) with a lead they would not relinquish, as a three-goal fourth chukker and last-minute drive from Cambiaso saw L.I.N.Y.'s young guns withstand FMB’s (Danny Walker, Lucas Criado, Facundo Obregon, Peke Gonzalez) late charge to claim the title 12-11.

The NetJets Pacific Coast Open will feature all six teams currently competing in the summer high-goal season. Newly-crowned Farmers & Merchants Bank Silver Cup champions Brookshire will set the pace alongside CK Shack (formerly A Team), Antelope, BenSoleimani.com, Farmers & Merchants Bank and Klentner Ranch.

Team USPA, an Association program designed to enhance and grow the sport of polo in the United States by identifying young, talented American players will be readily represented in the NetJets Pacific Coast Open. Three Team USPA alumni and two Active Team USPA Members are represented across four teams highlighting the depth of American talent.

U.S. Polo Assn., the official global apparel brand of the United States Polo Association, announced it will serve as the Stadium Sponsor and Official Apparel Brand for the 2023 NetJets Pacific Coast Open. U.S. Polo Assn. will be featured in multiple ways including stadium branding and apparel throughout the tournament.

NETJETS PACIFIC COAST OPEN

TOURNAMENT FORMAT

All teams will play three preliminary games cross-bracket. Following bracket play, teams will be ranked 1-6 based on record, with the top four ranked teams advancing to the semifinals. If possible, semifinalists will face an opponent they have not played in bracket play, otherwise semifinal pairings will be determined by draw. Winners of the semifinals will advance to the NetsJets Pacific Coast Open final.

If two teams have tied records and they did not play each other, the tie will be broken by a shootout. If three or more teams have tied records, the tie will be broken by a shootout regardless of who beat who.

The second preliminary match of the NetJets Pacific Coast Open between Brookshire and Farmers & Merchants Bank on Sunday, August 20 will be played as the final of the America Cup. Finalists for the America Cup were determined by draw.

During the preliminary game on Friday, August 25 between Farmers & Merchants Bank and Antelope, there was a procedural rule violation by a player on the Antelope team, consequently the remainder of the game was played under protest. After the match concluded, the USPA Host Tournament Committee ruled that the appropriate penalty for the violation warranted a forfeiture of the match by the Antelope team.
