The Newport International Polo Series 30th anniversary season is set to commence on Opening Day, June 5th, 2021. Thanks to the support of State and local leaders, our corps of loyal fans, and dedicated staff, the Polo Series weathered the turbulence of 2020 with a full season of 17 matches enjoyed by weekly audiences. Now, the approaching milestone season is coming into focus with developments underway to mark three decades of polo re-born in its American birthplace. This ongoing monthly blog will bring the latest updates as plans unfold. Subscribe to our private eMagazine to get the monthly email digest delivered to your inbox.
Work has commenced on a website overhaul. The key feature of the site development is a move to the latest ticketing platform, with a new integrated checkout process for seamless online ticket purchasing, to also extend to polo lessons & related services, and Pro Shop sales. Maintaining the checkout process on one platform from start to finish is expected to improve site speeds and up-to-the-second ticket availability. Customers can also expect new features making it easier to access and distribute electronic tickets. Along with the upgraded platform, new ticket scanners will be deployed at the polo grounds to speed up entry on game day. Expect more updates on the website upgrade as work progresses.
