Maserati Miami Beach Polo World CupApril 26 – 29, between 20th and 22nd Streets on the sands of South Beach

The Polo Life, LLC announces the eighth annual Maserati Miami Beach Polo World Cup, the world’s largest and most prestigious Beach Polo competition, taking place from April 26th to April 29th between 20th and 22nd Streets on the sands of South Beach, Florida. Maserati, the award-winning automotive manufacturer of sports-luxury cars, celebrates its inaugural year as Title Sponsor and establishes an unmistakable Italian flair in race bred performance vehicles alongside a gallant troupe of thoroughbred horses.

The four-day, globally renowned sporting event, considered the most coveted of its kind, features top polo players from around the world competing in two tournaments for both men and women. Attendees at this year’s Maserati Miami Beach Polo World Cup will once again experience the annual series of lifestyle and evening VIP events that form an essential part of the four-day festivities. Nighttime fashion shows by La Martina and Blank Silk will see the return of Meghan Walsh, the talented daughter of America’s Most Wanted TV host, John Walsh, and founder of the Indian-inspired Blank Silk women’s clothing line that she designs. To commemorate this year’s event, Maserati and its long-standing partnership with designer La Martina have come together for the creation of a ‘La Martina For Maserati’ polo shirt that will be on-sale at the La Martina retail tent on-site throughout the four days.

General admission to both competitions and adjacent Retail Village is free, and concessions will be available to purchase. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for purchase. VIP tickets allow entrance to the shaded Grandstand, where free food and drinks are served. VIP ticket prices are $100 for Thursday, April 26th and $130 for Friday, April 27th through Sunday, April 29th. Children 12 to 18 years old pay half the adult ticket price and children younger than 12 years old receive free admission. A percentage of all ticket sales will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami, the tournament’s official charity partner.
