Facundo Pieres to Captain Royal Salute Team in Closing Match of the Season
Royal Salute Scotch whisky is returning to Greenwich Polo Club with world number one, Facundo Pieres. He is set to play alongside his brother-in-law, Mariano Aguerre, and patron Peter M. Brant for the Royal Salute team as they compete in the highly anticipated Royal Salute Jubilee Cup later today. The event marks the end of the polo season in North America.
The triumphant team will be awarded with a magnificent crystal trophy which has been generously donated by specialist designers, Waterford Crystal. Each player will also be presented with a bespoke whisky tumbler to commemorate the occasion.
This prestigious final game rounds off a successful season in North America, which began at the very same polo ground in Greenwich for the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in May. The event was held in aid of the charity set up by His Royal Highness, Prince Harry.
Prior to the match, local and international VIPs will enjoy a private tour of the exhibition, ANDY WARHOL at The Brant Foundation Art Study Center. After witnessing the action on the field, guests will be treated to an award winning afternoon tea from L’Escale, with a specially curated whisky salute to end the season. To add to the prestige of the event, the Most Valuable Player will be awarded a jacket specially created for the Royal Salute World Polo Series by British Savile Row tailor Norton & Sons. England national player and Royal Salute ambassador, Malcolm Borwick will award the jacket to the MVP after the match.
