Ylvisaker Cup Announced

Teams and schedule confirmed

The teams and schedule for the 20 goal Ylvisaker Cup, due to take place at The International Polo Club Palm Beach, Florida, have been announced. This tournament is one of the most important fixtures in the USA high goal calendar and will kick off on Saturday 19 January, with the Final scheduled for Sunday 10 February.

This year’s tournament has seen just eight teams enter (in comparison to the 13 entered in 2018) following the USPA’s decision to lower the handicap threshold from 26 goals to 20 goals. Following the Ylvisaker Cup, most team’s organisations will amend their line-ups to participate in the inaugural 22 goal Gauntlet of Polo, which is set to see 16 teams take part in the illustrious US Open in April.
