WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.

The tournament is organized by the Manipur Tourism Association in partnership with the All Manipur Polo Association and Huntre! Equine.

As the official apparel supplier, U.S. Polo Assn. will outfit each of the six teams with official jerseys. Additionally, U.S. Polo Assn. will provide hats and shirts for staff and volunteers, as well as have signage throughout the event promoting women’s polo.

“We’re excited to see the Manipur Women’s Polo Tournament return to our region and are pleased to support the event efforts by outfitting the entire staff and officials with our branded product,” said Alok Dubey, CEO, Arvind Brands, U.S. Polo Assn.’s India partner. “This helps us reinforce the authenticity and awareness of U.S. Polo Assn. worldwide”
