Welcome to the Green Cup Polo Home Page
On Saturday September 19, 2015 our 9th Annual Green Cup Polo Tournament will be held at the Capitol Polo Club in Poolesville, MD. The main match will be determined by the results of preliminary matches played between the six international teams. The preliminary matches will be held on Friday September 18th, also at the Capitol Polo Club in Poolesville, Maryland.
The Green Cup is an opportunity to invite friends, family, clients, and employees to share in the exhilarating polo tradition, enjoyed by royalty throughout the world. The event welcomes between 500 -800 guests each year and is the first sporting event to be certified “green”in Washington DC, planned to minimize its ecological footprint. Played to raise awareness of environmental issues, it is hosted by the Capitol Polo Club and carried out in cooperation with various Embassies and local non-profits. This year we are proud to be partnering with Cultural Polo and the Mexican Cultural Institute. All proceeds benefit non-profit organizations involved with sustainable missions such as: Mind over Poverty, Mexican Cultural Institute, Charity Support Trust and Equestrian Partners in Conservation(EPIC).
