Highly anticipated, the Emaar Masters Cup 2020 kicks off on 11 February at Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club. The action packed tournament will see prestigious polo teams battling it out for the entire week, with the finals set to take place on Saturday, 15 February. The club, with the support of the Dubai Sports Council, will reward tournament finalists a cash prize of Dh120,000. Details of the tournament were revealed during a press conference last week. The event was attended by Chris Newman, CEO of Emaar Hospitality Group, Khalid Essa Al Jayassi, director of Emaar Leisure Clubs, and Lisa Matthews, general manager of Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club.
