Four hand-picked teams will be battling it out to make it to the cup final on February 11 which is expected to attract hundreds of polo fans and those looking for an entertaining day out. The final match will be followed by a VIP dinner for the players and specially invited guests.    

Founder and CEO of Nexus, Mahmoud Nodjoumi, said: “We are anticipating the second Nexus Valentine’s Polo Cup to be a fantastic day out for polo fans and Dubai residents alike – where everyone can enjoy an afternoon of world-class polo in a relaxed environment at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club.”

“Nexus are delighted to be the on-going sponsor for the Valentine’s Polo Cup because of the link between financial protection and relationships. Valentine’s Day is about couples who move on to marry and start a family, and sound financial planning is essential to helping couples at every stage of their life to enjoy a happy and secure time together,” he added.  

“We are very excited to host this event at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club for a second year in a row and we look forward to some exciting polo,” commented Vasken Vartanian, Sales and Marketing Manager, Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club.
