Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup to Close Prince Harry’s Official Tour of Brazil

Prince Harry’s first official visit to Brazil will include a game of international polo, with the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup on Sunday 11 March marking the finale of the royal tour.

Taking place in Campinas, São Paulo State, the match will be a star-studded event both on and off field with leading Argentine player Nacho Figueras heading up the St Regis team, rivaling the Sentebale team which will include Prince Harry.

Christian Porta, Chairman and CEO of Chivas Brothers said: “We’re so proud to be supporting such a deserving charity at an event that will no doubt be the highlight of the Royal Salute World Polo calendar,”

“The Brazilian appetite for the world’s leading luxury Scotch is clear with sales of Royal Salute more than doubling over the past year. The thriving market combined with the priority brand’s status as the fastest growing* within the Pernod Ricard Group are both strong signs of a bright future in this stunning country.”

The Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup further highlights the Scotch whisky brand’s solid commitment to international polo, with recent tournaments including the Foundation Polo Challenge in California, the Royal Salute China Open Beijing, the Royal Salute Maharaja of Jodhpur Golden Jubilee Cup in India and the Royal Salute UAE Nation’s Cup, Dubai.
