The draw has been announced

The draw has been announced for the 2018 Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz. During the last weekend of January, the crème de la crème of snow polo will be competing in the Alpine home of snow polo for the coveted Cartier Trophy.

The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz is the only high goal tournament on snow in the world and during the three-day tournament, spectators will be treated to thrilling polo in front of the magnificent Engadin Valley backdrop. 

Following the official team and sponsor presentation on Thursday 25 January, play will get underway with an initial match between Cartier and Badrutt’s Palace Hotel on Friday 26 January at 12pm.
This will be followed by the second match of the tournament at 2.15pm between Maserati and Azerbaijan Land of Fire. The next day Maserati and Cartier will begin the day’s proceedings, followed by Badrutt’s Palace vs Azerbaijan Land of Fire. On Sunday, the teams will come together in the Final and Subsidiary Final to end an exciting weekend of snow polo. Alongside the exhilarating polo, guests will be entertained by glamorous social events and experiences.
