The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz Postponed

No event in January 2021

Today it has been announced the 37th Snow Polo World Cup which was due to take place 29 – 31 January 2021 has been postponed to 2022. The Board of Directors of the event cited several contributing factors; not least their responsibility towards visitors, partners, players, their staff and volunteers in the difficult times caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The global uncertainty surrounding the freedom to travel also has added to the complexity. Sound planning for this huge event has become all but impossible given the ever-changing entry restrictions and quarantine regulations, which would have rendered it difficult to plan travel to St. Moritz for the tournament. Shifting consumer booking patterns borne out of unprecedented planning insecurity have made it impracticable for the organisers to stage this major event. Despite the postponement, the event’s founder and organiser Reto Gaudenzi believes the world's only high-goal polo tournament on snow’s long-term future is bright telling us, "We have been delighted to note that the response to our tournament from sponsors and partners, players and VIP guests has steadily increased over the years. The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz enjoys an unrivalled reputation around the globe." The enigmatic ‘Godfather of Snow Polo’ Gaudenzi and his team are now focusing their energy and attention on the next objective: The Snow Polo World Cup 2022, which will be held between 28 to 30 January. The 2022 edition will see a first for the event: Six instead of four teams will compete on the frozen Lake St. Moritz. Newcomers Clinique La Prairie, the traditional champagne house Perrier-Jouët, and a lifestyle fashion brand will be challenging the existing team sponsors Badrutt's Palace Hotel, Azerbaijan Land of Fire, and St. Moritz Top of the World. VIP tickets that have already been purchased for the 2021 tournament may either be reimbursed or credited towards the 2022 tournament.
