Inaugural Gauntlet of Polo Series

USPA announces launch of new series in February 2019

The United States Polo Association (USPA), USPA Global Licensing (USPAGL) and International Polo Club have announced the arrival of a new high-stakes tournament series due to start in February 2019. The Gauntlet of Polo Series will see players from across the world battle for the coveted C.V. Whitney Cup, The USPA Gold Cup and The US Open Polo Championship, all of which are played at a 20 goal handicap level. What’s more, the team that wins all three tournaments will be crowned Gauntlet Champions and take home a total prize of $1 million, the largest prize money pot in the history of polo. 

The tournament series will include a ‘winner take all’ prize money format, guaranteeing $125,000 to each of the winning teams of the C.V Whitney Cup and The USPA Gold Cup and a $250,000 prize for the winner of the US Open Polo Championship. A $500,000 bonus for any team that wins all three tournaments in consecutive order will serve as an additional incentive, to yield a total of $1 million in prize money. 
“The GAUNTLET will challenge the world’s top players and horses to strive for the most prestigious trophies in the United States and provide a new platform for athletes, teams, sponsors and polo fans,” said Robert Puetz, CEO of the USPA. “Vying for $1 million dollars in prize money over the course of three months, the strongest teams and most talented players in the game will arise, elevating both their preparation and horses for the chance to etch their names in American polo history as the Gauntlet Champion.”
The C.V. Whitney will commence on 13 February 2019, with the Final scheduled for 24 February. Following this, The USPA Gold Cup will begin on 24 February until 24 March and the Series will culminate between 27 March and 21 April with The US Open Championship.
