Saratoga Polo Association Welcomes New Sports Market to Whitney Field

Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2013

For over 115 years, The Saratoga Polo Association has welcomed some of the most exciting and historic polo matches in the United States, and over the past few decades, the crowds and level of play has skyrocketed. In 2013, Saratoga Polo Association will be hosting eight additional weeks of sports in addition to polo. It’s not surprising that new and emerging sports such as lacrosse, soccer, rugby, and even Ultimate Frisbee are looking and booking their tournaments at the lush grounds of The Whitney Fields to make their mark in the Saratoga Sports Market. “Whitney Field is a remarkable venue for polo, ” said Jim Rossi, Managing Partner of Saratoga Polo Association, and Chief Marketing Officer for the U.S. Polo Association, “and what’s even more exciting is how so many burgeoning sports leagues see the size of our fields and attraction of the destination as the main reason to come here to Saratoga.” To give you an idea of why these tournaments work so well at the two fields of Saratoga Polo, it’s best to understand that each polo field is nine and one half times the size of a football field. “Just from the pure logistics of running a tournament with multiple matches, the size and scope of the Whitney Fields makes life simpler for the sports event managers,” said Alan Edstrom, The Events and Sponsorship Manager at Saratoga Polo. The sports market in the Spa City is growing in intensity and popularity due to the efforts of presenters like Saratoga Polo, event producers, and local agencies. Heather McElhiney, Director of Sports Sales at the Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau, added, ” We are very fortunate to have an accomplished sporting event venue partner in the Saratoga Polo Association. The field quality is top notch, the team at Saratoga Polo understands the unique needs of each event, and works diligently and professionally with owners and planners to make each tournament a success.” Source: iloveny
