This year Maserati’s presence in the polo world, which first began in 2012, will be further reinforced as the Modenese car manufacturer will be main sponsor of the best polo events in its most strategic markets, from China to Europe and the USA.
On occasion of the 2015 Tour, La Martina and Maserati will launch a new capsule collection designed by La Martina for Maserati inspired by the concept of the "Polo Player Kit".
Immediately after its German inauguration, the Maserati Polo Tour will continue in the UK with the celebrated “Maserati Jerudong Park Trophy”, which supports the charities of HRH The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry and will take place on 24 May in one of the oldest and most prestigious English polo clubs, the "Cirencester Park Polo Club", inaugurated in 1894.
From 3 to 6 September, Maserati will also then compete with its team in the “USPA Maserati Silver Cup” at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, California, one of the oldest tournaments in North America, ranked in the top four USA polo tournaments.
Finally, the Tour will conclude in October in China at “Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club” with the “Maserati Metropolitan Polo Classic 2015”, the last unmissable appointment of these four international polo tournaments.
