North American Cup®

Tournament History

Instituted in 1974, the North American Cup® has been a staple in American and Canadian polo for several decades played at the 16- to 20-goal level. The first winners of the tournament Tulsa boasted Hall of Famers John T. Oxley and Dr. William “Billy” Linfoot along with Corky Linfoot and Jason “Jim” MacGinley. During the late 1990s and early 2000s Calgary Polo Club in Alberta, Canada, was host to the tournament with Millarville dominating the competition. Residing at Grand Champions Polo Club in Wellington, Florida, since 2011, the North American Cup® relocated in 2019 to sister club Aspen Valley Polo Club (Aspen, Colorado) and has returned to GCPC for 2020.

In 2019, Aspen-based polo team La Karina led the game from start-to-finish, defeating McClure River Ranch in a stunning 15-12 victory. Among the 2020 competition are Team USPA alumni Grant Ganzi (Casablanca) and U.S. Polo Assn. Global Brand Ambassador Juancito Bollini.
