Prince Harry & Team Win Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup - 12th March, 2012

Prince Harry & Team Win Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup - 12th March, 2012Prince Harry’s first visit to Brazil culminated in triumph yesterday at the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, which took place at Haras Larissa, Campinas, São Paulo.

Over 500 international and Brazilian VIPs including supermodel Fernanda Motta, who presented the Prince with the trophy, gathered to watch the Sentebale team play the St. Regis team, captained by Nacho Figueras, with a final score of six to three.

Speaking of his work for Sentebale the Prince said “I hope that with the position that I’m in and the title that I have, I will continue to be able to use that to bring attention to these disadvantaged kids all over the world."

Christian Porta, Chairman and CEO of Chivas Brothers also said: “We’re honoured to support Sentebale for the second year. It was great to witness such a well-played game, with the Prince’s team taking the Cup.

“Royal Salute World Polo has a fantastic presence in Brazil, including Triple Coroa Tournament at the Helvetia Polo Club in São Paulo. This amazing country, with a thirst for luxury is a natural home for Royal Salute and we look forward to a great future here.”

The game demonstrated the immense strength and skill of the ‘sport of kings’ with Most Valuable Player awarded by British jeweller Garrard to Calao Mello who scored three goals.

The Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup further highlights the Scotch whisky brand’s commitment to international polo, with recent tournaments including the Foundation Polo Challenge in California, the Royal Salute China Open Beijing, the Royal Salute Maharaja of Jodhpur Golden Jubilee Cup in India and the Royal Salute UAE Nation’s Cup, Dubai.  

The Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup partnered with Haras Larissa (Official Host and Venue Sponsor), St. Regis Hotels and Resorts (Official Team Sponsor), Garrard (Official Jeweller, Silversmith and Most Valuable Player Award), Jaguar Land Rover (Official Vehicle Sponsor) and Nespresso (Official Coffee Sponsor).
