Land Rover Palm Beach Announced as Title Sponsor of 9th Annual International Gay Polo Tournament

Wellington, Fla. – Nov. 8, 2017 – The Gay Polo League is proud to announce that Land Rover Palm Beach has signed on as the prestigious Title Sponsor for the spring season’s hottest social and sporting event, the 9th Annual International Gay Polo Tournament. The tournament and all its festivities will be held April 5 – 8, 2018 at the world-class International Polo Club Palm Beach.

“We are so excited to sign Land Rover Palm Beach, such a prestigious and respected brand, as the Title Sponsor for the tournament,” said Chip McKenney, Founder and President of the Gay Polo League. “As a premier equestrian sponsor for years, Land Rover has made quite an impression in the industry sponsoring multiple United States teams and numerous major equestrian championships, and we are honored to be in such great company.”

Historically, Land Rover has been a longstanding global supporter of equestrian events. In fact, Land Rover has been a prominent force worldwide in the equestrian industry, specifically eventing and show jumping, for more than 30 years. Therefore, it is extremely exciting that Land Rover Palm Beach’s Title Sponsorship of the 9th Annual International Gay Polo Tournament marks its entrance into the polo and LGBTQ spheres, as well. As an elegant luxury brand, Land Rover Palm Beach aligns perfectly with the vision and presence of the 9th Annual International Gay Polo Tournament, a luxury event in its own right, and the capabilities and characteristics of Land Rover’s vehicles equally match the rigors of equestrian sport.

Land Rover Palm Beach, a dealership known for its unsurpassed customer service and a product know for luxury, elegance, performance and durability, is a premier community asset and the perfect pairing for the spring tournament. With Land Rover Palm Beach onboard, the Gay Polo League is positive that the appeal of the tournament will grow, and the organization is excited to foster this beneficial relationship.

“This event is a natural fit for us. After attending last year, and hearing how much fun our staff and customers had, we knew we wanted to return for more fun. Land Rover Palm Beach is ecstatic to be the Title Sponsor for this year’s event,” said Matt Atkins, General Manager of Land Rover Palm Beach.
