Polo for a sports fan’s bucket list? Really? Absolutely, positively, yes. You’ve been sitting around watching football, baseball, or basketball, perhaps an auto race or golf tournament. Maybe it’s time to branch out a little bit and see something that you can tell your friends about. It’s called the Argentine Open Polo Championship, but polo fans know it as "Palermo," the biggest polo match in the world.
So you head down to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and check out why this is called the "sport of kings," and see the greatest polo players in the world on world-class thoroughbreds. Why not add this to your bucket list? Buenos Aires — that says it all about what kind of venue is offered. Like, one of the world’s greatest places for hotels, sightseeing, shopping, food and drink.
The website Trillionaire explains the event best: "Stepping into a magical 'Great Gatsby' world, you are immediately swept up in the passion and glamour of a sport that seems foreign to even the most veteran of travelers; yet, it is a world that has endured for centuries." And, while you're there, you can learn about the sport.
On game day, they have team tents with chairs and couches, and if the players are not playing, you can meet some of them. Then, you check out the best polo has to offer, and who knows, you might become one of the sport’s newest fans with a greater appreciation seeing it live.
