The WPL Founders Cup

Debut Win for Park Place

On Sunday 17 March, U.S. Open champions, Park Place, sought their first World Polo League title but they faced La Irenita who not only featured two of the 2023 finalists (Gonzalito Pieres and Pablo MacDonough) in their line-up, but had also reached the Final after defeating the 2023 Founders Cup champions – Audi. Park Place’s defensive resilience and lightning-quick offensive manoeuvres from the throw-ins propelled them to a nail-biting final chukka which they began by leading 15-11. However, La Irenita refused to concede defeat, mounting a spectacular resurgence in the sixth chukka. With three consecutive goals, they narrowed the gap to a single point at 15-14, setting the stage for a nail-biting finish.In the closing moments of the game, amidst frantic action and heart-stopping plays, Park Place's Ulloa seized a crucial opportunity, breaking away from the pack to score a decisive goal, securing a 16-14 victory for his team.
