Team Italy makes its first transatlantic crossing since 2019, as the players return to challenge Team USA in the continuation of the Newport International Polo Series’ 30th Anniversary Season at 5 pm on Saturday, July 10th. According to Newport Polo, the celebrations kick off with a meet and greet on Friday evening at the Brenton Hotel, followed by the Saturday Polo match and Après Polo menu catered by A Mano Pizza + Gelato.

Cocktail reception attendees at the Brenton will have the opportunity to meet Captain Marco Elser and his teammates, journeying to Newport from Rome – home of the oldest of Italy’s 15 polo clubs.  The sport cultivates a smaller community in Italy, where around 150 dedicated sportsmen and women play year-round everywhere from Lazio’s white-sand beaches to frozen Alpine lakes, and the polo fields that lay in between, according to Newport Polo.
