Polo season is nearly upon us again and Monday, Empire Polo Club announced their 2020 season schedule – which actually kicks off in 2019.
The first day of Sunday Polo is Dec. 29th, which is Empire’s “soft opening.” The official “Opening Day & Hat Day” is scheduled for Sunday, January 5th, 2020 – so there’s still time to find that gigantic hat to wear.
Sunday Polo games are scheduled every week from December 29th through March 29th, 2020 – with the exception of Sunday, January 19th and Sunday, March 8th. Sunday Polo games are at 12 noon and 2 pm.
There is a $ 20 parking fee (cash only) to attend all Sunday afternoon polo games – and that covers everyone in your vehicle. Tailgaters are welcome; space along the sidelines is available on a first come, first served basis. Bleacher seating is also available in the General Admission area. General Admission gates open at 10 am. Spectators are welcome to bring their own food and beverages into the General Admission area. Food and beverage service is also available for purchase.
VIP Admission is $30 per person and includes parking, VIP seating and a complimentary Champagne Divot Stomp. Cash or credit is accepted for VIP admission. The VIP seating area is located in front of the Olympic-peaked tents on the west side of the main polo field and offers field-side covered seating.
Spectators can also watch multiple televised sporting events while enjoying polo at the VIP Sports Lounge and Bar, located adjacent to the VIP seating area. The Sports Lounge offers viewers three flat screens featuring Sunday football games and other popular sports.
