This year, the Cartier Queen’s Cup Final marked Cartier’s 31st year of polo sponsorship as the longest standing polo sponsor in history.
In 1984, Cartier first sponsored the International Day at Guards Polo Club and continued for 27 years before sponsoring the Queen’s Cup. 31 years later, Cartier polo events are still much-anticipated and never ceased to expand internationally. The guests have always included royalty, celebrities, the respected polo community and many more.
Cartier and polo’s long standing rapport has resulted in something truly iconic and it is a relationship that Cartier is honoured to uphold for years to come.
