U.S. Polo Assn. to Be the Official Clothing Sponsor for the World Snow Polo Championship on December 19-20 in Aspen, Colorado

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - December 10, 2014) - USPA Properties, Inc. announced today that its North American U.S. Polo Assn. licensee, JRA Trademark Company, LTD., will be the official clothing sponsor for the World Snow Polo Championship on December 19-20 in Aspen, Colorado. Other sponsors include Piaget, Flexjet and the St. Regis.

The U.S. Polo Assn. brand will supply jerseys to all players participating in this tournament, which is organized by Marc and Melissa Ganzi, co-founders of the Aspen Valley Polo Club and Grand Champions Polo Club in Wellington, Florida. The Ganzi's are very active in the polo community, in addition to being talented players themselves.

Last year's event (which was the first World Snow Polo Championship held in Aspen) attracted a dynamic audience who gathered to watch some of the best polo players in the world face each other in fast-paced snow polo matches -- the St. Regis team took home the gold. In addition to polo matches, several parties were held in conjunction with the tournament, throughout the town of Aspen.

This year's teams will include U.S. Polo Assn., Piaget, Flexjet, Audi and the St. Regis, and will feature talented professional polo players, such as, Tommy Biddle (the only Arena 10 goal American player), Juan Bollini, Kris Kampsen, Jeff Hall, Robert Gonzalez and Nic Roldan. The final match will broadcast on NBC Sports Network (NBC SN) on the 27th of December at 4:00 p.m. eastern.

Set against a backdrop of snowy mountains, the second annual World Snow Polo Championship held in Aspen will surely draw a great crowd, a mix of avid polo fans and VIPS. Below is a schedule of events.
