AGMC, the authorised dealer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Dubai, Sharjah and Northern Emirates, and the sponsor of Dubai Polo Club’s first UAE National Day Polo Cup, presented the winning trophy to Bin Drai Polo Team, at a quintessentially classic event last week.
Hosted at Dubai Polo Club, the event paid tribute to the heritage of the UAE and the celebration of its 43rd anniversary. The National Day Polo Cup saw competition between six teams including Bin Drai, Ghantoot, Habtoor, Mahra, DCC and DR.A, there was also a friendly match of camel polo where spectators were able to participate.
In addition, several Rolls-Royce models were on display at the Dubai Polo Club including the Rolls-Royce Wraith and a limited edition Rolls-Royce Majestic Horse Ghost, released earlier this year, in commemoration of the historical importance of the horse in Arab culture.
“The UAE has a wealth of equestrian talent with horses having great significance in terms of national heritage. AGMC is delighted to pay tribute to this magnificent culture by hosting the Bespoke Majestic Horse for our distinguished clients.” said Mohammad Elarishy, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars brand manager at AGMC.
Polo is often referred to as the “sport of kings”, and is popular among international royalty, as well as ruling GCC families and other prominent UAE locals. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has historically been the first choice for international royalty and dignitaries, which further re-affirms the marque’s affinity with the luxury sport of polo.
After a successful inaugural event, AGMC will again present the UAE National Day Polo Cup in 2015.
