England Will Face Argentina in Coronation Cup

Two pairs of brothers to represent Argentina

The Argentine Polo Association has accepted the Hurlingham Polo Association’s invitation for an Argentine team to take on England in this year’s Coronation Cup at Guards Polo Club on Saturday 27 July. 

Since the cup's revival in 1971, Argentina and England have clashed five times – in 1995, 2000, 2009, 2014, and 2019 – with the visiting team triumphing on each occasion. After an undefeated international season in 2023, the English team is hoping to break Argentina's winning streak and reclaim the Coronation Cup. Their victories against The Commonwealth and Uruguay in 2023 and 2022 have bolstered their confidence for this match.

It has been confirmed that the Argentine team will be made up of two pairs of brothers: Hilario and Carlos M. Ulloa along with Rufino and Beltrán Laulhé, with Marcos Di Paola chosen as their coach. The England team is yet to be decided. 

Guards Polo Club Chairman Lt Col Sean O’Dwyer commented, “Guards Polo Club is delighted to host the ultimate polo contest, England vs Argentina, and welcome the international polo community to Smith’s Lawn for International Day. Regardless of the final score we will be guaranteed a wonderful display of high-goal polo featuring some incredible players and their amazing horses. The Coronation Cup is international polo at its very best, being played on one of the finest polo fields in the UK. I recommend everyone to save the date – this could be the game of the year.”
