My Experience at the Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series

There are a few colorful events in Dubai  and one of them is Dubai Polo Julius Baer Gold Cup. Every spring when the sun is still mild and the weather is just right for an outdoor activities , the final game of a Julius Baer Gold Cup polo championship takes place.  The carnival of beautiful dresses, various entertainment, amazing brunches, happy people and wonderful sunny weather !

It was my first time attending Dubai Polo Gold Cup as I’ve never happened to be in Dubai on the exact date before. I just loved the atmosphere! Besides having a lovely brunch and trying to watch the game (I am not a “polo girl”, I must confess), I was happy to meet new people and run into old friends I haven’t seen for ages!  If you are a polo lover – you will definitely appreciate this kind of event. You can have your friends over for a picnic on the grass with an ideal view on the field. Or enjoy a brunch in one of the lovely tents before watching the game.  If you want to stay tuned for the upcoming championships, you can check the schedule and follow up all the polo games here.

     Dubai Polo Survival Tips

  • Bring a hat with you, as it already gets pretty hot in Dubai in the middle of March.
  • Wear a sunscreen. You really feel the sun, especially in the peak hours. Couple of my friends who were visiting Dubai got a bit sunburned…
  • Wear a comfortable shoes! As you are outdoors –  you will be walking on the grass or a dry mud all the time :)
  • As for the parking – it is pretty spacious!
