2023 Sponsors Lead the Charge

2023 Sponsor Announcements

Date: Monday, January 30, 2023

The Newport International Polo Series is thrilled to roll out the first cadre of 2023 sponsors that will help launch its 32nd season. These industry leaders recognize the value of the polo experience for our community, and are investing in the quality of life in our state and region, to ensure summer-long exciting sports entertainment and fun outdoor social engagement for families & friends, neighbors & colleagues, brides, alumni and so many other connections.  

Newport Polo Nation enjoys the benefits of these strategic partnerships to elevate the Saturday polo experience, supporting continual facility improvements, seating enhancements, technological upgrades, new entertainment opportunities, an extensive roster of rivals, and world-class hospitality for polo fans and visiting teams. Additional sponsor introductions and acknowledgements are planned for the coming months.

"There is no doubt that without the support of our Sponsors over the past 31 years, the Polo Series would not be as extensive as it is today, and may not have endured the challenges of a startup and unforeseen setbacks along the way," explains Dan Keating, Founder and President.  "And it is not just at Polo where these businesses make a measurable difference.  They are the apex of their industry, providing the best, most competitive products, services, innovations and resources that you'll find, and it is an honor to represent them."
