Dubai Masters Cup

UAE beat Habtoor Polo to take the win

On Thursday 15 February, the UAE Polo Team became the new champions of the 2018 Masters Cup, the second trophy in the Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series 2018, after defeating Habtoor Polo in the Final by a 5½-5.

In a very close match, HH Sheika Maitha Al Maktoum's team won the trophy thanks to a great goal scored by young gun Lucas Monteverde Jr. after spending the majority of the match trailing by half a goal to Habtoor Polo.

Field Two of the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club was ablaze with some fantastic polo, to the delight of the gathered spectators and guests. 

In the Subsidiary Final, Wolves defeated RA Polo 5-4 taking the hotly contested third place.

The next instalment in the Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series, The Julius Bäer Cup, will begin today at the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club, with two games taking place on the first day. Wolves will begin proceedings against Abu Dhabi Polo Team at 2pm, followed by Zedan Polo versus UAE Polo at 4pm. 

The Dubai Masters Cup Final Teams:

UAE Polo (8): HH Sheika Maitha Al Maktoum (0), Lucas Monteverde Jr (0), Pablo Avalos (2) & Matias Benoit (6)

Habtoor Polo (10): Mohammed Al Habtoor (0), Jimbo Fewster (2), Matias Gonzalez (2) & Guillermo Cuitiño (6)
