In just over two weeks, six international teams will descend upon the beautiful Engadin Valley for the 37th edition of The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz. The three-day tournament is preceded by a day of training matches on Thursday 27 January, followed by the players and sponsors presentation at the Kulm Hotel and a Fondue Night at Hotel Steffani, to kick off the tournament.

Day One sees three matches played, the first time in the tournament history, with Azerbaijan Land of Fire vs Perrier-Jouët, Clinique La Prairie vs World Polo League and Badrutt’s Palace Hotel vs Casablanca and after day one there will be a team ranking from one to six, with the three winners proceeding directly to the Semi Finals, with the team in fourth position also progressing to the Semi Finals; the first ranked team will play the best losing team, the second ranked team will play the third.
