The Bryan Morrison Trophy is Postponed

The International Test Match for The Bryan Morrison Trophy to be played at Polo in the Park

Today, the announcement was made that The International Test Match for The Bryan Morrison Trophy, originally scheduled to take place on Saturday 7 March at The All England Polo Club, Hickstead, has been postponed. 

The Hurlingham Polo Association (HPA) have commented that the match will now take place on the Friday afternoon of Chesterton’s Polo in the Park, on Friday 5 June at Hurlingham Park, London. The idea behind the move is to enable more spectators to witness arena polo in all its glory, with over 20,000 spectators expected to attend.
The HPA are hoping the US Polo Association will continue to support The International Test Match for The Bryan Morrison Trophy, by sending a team over to compete against Frasers England. 
The HPA have commented on the postponement, “The match will now be played in Hurlingham Park on the Friday afternoon in order to showcase arena polo to one of the largest crowds at polo in the UK.
“Although played on grass and with slightly different rules, the games at Chestertons Polo in the Park are very similar to arena polo and attract huge crowds. It is anticipated that the USPA will still provide the opposition, as was the intention in March, although this is still to be confirmed. Max Charlton will remain as Frasers England Captain for the day.
“Complimenting the on-field attractions, the HPA will also have a #trypolouk trade stand promoting polo across the three days of the event. Similar to what was done at the recent Olympia Horse Show, this is intended to ensure that the polo world in general benefits from the publicity created by what promises to be an excellent Test match at the spiritual home of polo, Hurlingham Park.”
Earlier this month, the HPA announced that 10 goaler Max Charlton had agreed to Captain the Frasers England team set to compete in this illustrious match, taking to the arena for the first time as his nation’s Captain.
