Newport Polo fans discovered the best salve for the pandemic was to Keep Calm and Polo On. Attending the matches was the closest thing to normalcy last summer, and by observing basic protocols in effect at the polo grounds, families and friends were ensured a Covid-safe and socially-distanced environment for outdoor entertainment, as enjoyed in seasons past.
To welcome these gregarious supporters, our partner of nearly 10 years, the world's #1 Belgian beer and host-with-the-most, Stella Artois rolled out the red carpet, toasting the most spirited Newport Polo fans at each match with a special prize, bestowed by a cast of weekly guest judges, photographed by our resident portrait photographer, inspired by weekly themes and applauded with a Jumbotron moment of fame.
As an encore tribute to the good cheer that our fans bring, we're calling upon the most discerning polo enthusiasts - our fans - to join us in this ovation and pick the Best of the Best In Show 2020!
