Gold Cup Tournament 2012
For the fifth consecutive year Piaget will continue its support of polo at one of the world’s premiere venues, the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC), with the kick-off of the USPA Piaget Gold Cup tournament. Introduced in 1974, this event is one of the most prestigious 26-goal tournaments in the world and is a highlight of polo season.
The Piaget team will be captained by a friend of the brand, Marc Ganzi (1). Fellow Piaget polo ambassador, Jeff Hall (7), along with Nico Pieres (8) and Gonzalito Pieres (10) will also help carry the team. Piaget will be competing against teams from ERG, Alegria, Zacara, La Ensenada, Valiente I, Coca-Cola, Las Monjitas, Lechuza Caracas and Orchard Hill throughout the course of the tournament. Also participating will be team Audi, captained by Marc Ganzi’s wife, Melissa Ganzi, who is fresh off her win at the Ylvisaker Cup tournament where she led the Piaget team to victory in the final match-up against her husband.
The USPA Piaget Gold Cup tournament will take place over the next few weeks and will conclude with the final match on Sunday, March 25th at IPC’s championship venue, Piaget Field. Larry Boland, President of Piaget North America, will host a celebratory VIP field-side brunch for players, patrons, and Palm Beach’s best and brightest.
Piaget has a long history with polo and for more than three decades has been associated with the sport of kings in the United States, Argentina and Europe. Mr. Yves Piaget was a major supporter of polo in Palm Beach in the late 1970s, and strongly believed that polo embodies the same attributes as Piaget luxury watches: beauty, daring and precision. The brand introduced the iconic Piaget Polo watch in 1979.
