After years of development, the Gallo|Thomas Jumbotron is set to go live during USA vs. Morocco on Saturday, August 4th. Polo fans will witness the official ribbon cutting ceremony and first activation of this new multimedia experience. Attendees will get a new in-depth experience of the game, with rules explanations, player and pony profiles, special highlights of the day, and a chance to see themselves and their messages on the big screen.
This exciting project is made possible through the support and partnership of Gallo Thomas Insurance, an independent firm protecting the businesses, homes, and families of New England for almost 70 years. As an independent insurance broker, Gallo Thomas represents over 30 distinguished carriers who enable it to provide the most cost-effective solutions backed by personal relationships with clients that extend beyond the office and into the field during a crisis.
"This has been a rewarding accomplishment as the Polo Series approaches its 30th season," commented Dan Keating, president of Newport Polo. "It wouldn't have been possible without the strong support of Gallo|Thomas and our community leaders. I am looking forward to seeing the audience's reaction."
The 30-foot video wall will replace the existing scoreboard that has greeted fans entering the grounds for the last decade. The new installation is located on the east side of the field, opposite the current scoreboard. Fans can expect the launch of an online message portal to make personal announcements during the games, and advertising opportunities may be available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
