The match will begin with national anthem(s), player introductions, and Official Coin Toss. Halftime intermission includes a stroll on the polo field for the divot stomp, a ‘treading in’ to replace divots, a time-honored tradition to repair the field for the second half.
After 6 periods of competition, called chukkers, the match will conclude with a victory lap by the teams as they circle the field in the Newport Polo Fan Salute – a tradition originating at the Newport International Polo Series in 2003, and now emulated at polo clubs around the world – followed by the Champagne Toast & Trophy Presentation, autograph signing, and an après polo cocktail hour celebration at the Patio Bar to conclude festivities.
