Habtoor Secure IFZA Silver Cup

Undefeated run to the Final

Habtoor secured The Dubai Silver Cup on Saturday 3 February after defeating reigning champions UAE Polo with a score of 10-8 in the championship match held at Al Habtoor Polo Club in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Mohammed Al Habtoor's team clinched the Cup undefeated, while HH Sheikha Maitha and her team were unable to replicate their success from the previous year.
With Facundo Fernández Llorente substituting for the injured Bautista Bayugar, Habtoor dominated both the match and the scoreboard. UAE Polo faced a formidable opponent that showed no mercy. Until the fourth chukka, Habtoor maintained control, starting the fifth and final chukka with an impressive 9-3 advantage. Despite UAE Polo's unexpected comeback attempt, scoring five goals, their efforts fell short. In the end, Habtoor emerged victorious, securing the Dubai Silver Cup.
Simultaneously, The Subsidiary Insignia Cup was claimed by Dubai Wolves by CAFU, who defeated Bangash with a score of 13-6½.
