CARTIER QUEEN’S CUP 2013Cartier is pleased to present its annual sponsorship
‘The King of Jewellers’, Cartier, has a long-standing tradition of supporting polo, the true ‘Sport of Kings’ the world over. Cartier UK has enjoyed 27 wonderful years of sponsoring polo through the Cartier International Day and is now proud to be involved in the prestigious high-goal Queen’s Cup tournament.
Arnaud M. Bamberger, Executive Chairman Cartier UK, comments on the second year of supporting the Queen’s Cup: ‘We are honoured to uphold our loyalty to the sport of polo with the Cartier Queen’s Cup. It is a much-treasured privilege to have such a standing in the British social calendar and I look forward to enriching further our strong heritage with both the sport and with Guards Polo Club’.
The Cartier Queen’s Cup is one of the world’s leading polo tournaments, starring the world’s greatest players. The opportunity to win the Cartier Queen’s Cup is a highlight for the sport’s elite and creates memorable high-goal matches for both players and spectators alike. HM The Queen first presented her cup in 1960 and has seen HRH Prince Philip play in the final and HRH Prince Charles go one better and win the trophy.
The tournament itself began on Wednesday 22nd May, the start of three weeks of thrilling high-goal polo. This world-leading tournament concludes with the historic final on Sunday 16th June, traditionally played in the presence of HM The Queen at Guards Polo Club, and the prestigious lunch in the Cartier enclosure.
