Al Habtoor Polo Cup

The first ever Al Habtoor Polo Cup event was held on Friday the 23rd of March 2007 in Dubai Polo Club at The Arabian Ranches.

Al Habtoor Group and Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ABDB) were the sponsors of the event.

The event featured a stunning match between the Al Habtoor polo team and Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank team.

For the Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank team, the players were Susan Sanderson from Australia, John Fisher from the UK, James Harper from the UK and Herman Echague from Argentina.

The players arrived on the pitch, in style, on camels.  After this, they mounted their horses and the match started.

There was a big excitement in the first few minutes, with two goals being scored in quick succession. The five chukkas ended in a 9 5 result in the favour of Al Habtoor Polo Team.

Walid Tabbal presented the prizes from ADCB. Quatra Terra won the best horse award, while Mohammed Al Habtoor won the Best Player award.

The evening continued with a gala dinner and the guests throughout the evening were entertained by The Diva Duo and The Tahiti Group.
