Argentina Polo facts:
Argentina is undoubtedly the world’s best polo team, so much so that international play has been modified because of the Argentines. The maximum total handicap that a team can have is 14 goals: each of Argentina’s players has 10 goals or more. So basically the Argentine national team doesn’t play with their best players so that the rest of the world can try and compete.
The Argentine national polo selection has won the Olympics more than any other team in the world with four titles in 1987, 1992, 1998, and 2011.
The world’s best polo tournament takes place in Palermo, the “Campeonato Argentino Abierto” and the tournament begins on Nov. 15th. Tickets can be purchased in advance via ticketek.com.
