Asia Cup Polo Pits England Against India

The fight for the trophy will be between India and England as these two proud nations take on each other in a classic encounter. Cricket?! No -- POLO! I'm talking about Asia Cup Polo at Kirtlington Park on June 30th. The clash will be one of the highlights of this year’s British polo calendar, played out in front of thousands of spectators at the Oxfordshire venue.

Sponsor is a gaming site for South East Asian communities in the UK and abroad. In March, sponsored the Asian Poker Classic, held in Goa, India. They'll have poker and casino tables set up at Kirtlington Park so fans can play a variety of casino games while they enjoy the days events.

Asia Cup Polo is part of “Celebrasian”, a festival celebrating all aspects of Asian culture. Running from June to July, “Celebrasian” brings together Asians and non-Asians through events as diverse as business, food, fashion and sport.

The setting for the Asia Cup couldn’t be better. Kirtlington Park Polo Club founded in 1926, is one of the UK’s most prestigious venues and has been a breeding ground for some of the nation’s top polo professionals.

“The sport of polo has a long tradition in India and England", said Sachin Pawa of “So both sides will be determined to prove their supremacy -- it's going to be a great day!”
