Motorpoint, the UK’s largest independent car retailer, has renewed its support for Polo at the Manor by returning as the event’s title sponsor for a second year.
Motorpoint has a network of branches throughout England, Scotland and Wales, including one close to the Celtic Manor Resort, next to the Newport Retail Park.
The new and nearly new low mileage independent car specialist will turn its attention to horsepower of a different kind after agreeing to sponsor Polo at the Manor for a second time on Saturday 16th June 2018.
The event will see international players and ponies from across the UK compete in a day of professional, fast-paced polo matches on a specially created polo field next to the Twenty Ten Ryder Cup golf course at Celtic Manor.
Having established itself as the sporting and social event of the summer season since its inception in 2011, guests also have the opportunity to sip champagne and cocktails whilst indulging in a spot of celebrity-spotting.
Reality TV star Lydia Bright, from hit TV show The Only Way Is Essex, has just announced she will also be returning to Polo at the Manor sponsored by Motorpoint in 2018.
Motorpoint Newport General Manager Chris Brown said: “We had a wonderful day in the sun at last summer’s Polo at the Manor so Motorpoint is delighted to confirm our title sponsorship of the event again this June.
“This fantastic event gives us a wonderful opportunity to promote our brand and strengthen our links with the local community. As the UK’s leading car supermarket, Motorpoint makes customer service a priority and a day at the polo is a perfect way to bring people together to enjoy themselves and build relationships.
“The Celtic Manor Resort has a track record for putting on brilliant sporting events and first-class hospitality, and we look forward to another day to remember this June.”
Polo at the Manor sponsored by Motorpoint will see more than a thousand guests enjoy a sumptuous day of hospitality in the main pavilion and an even greater number of spectators watch the action while enjoying lavish picnics on the sidelines.
Celtic Manor Resort Sponsorship and Hospitality Manager Gemma Smith said: “We are delighted that Motorpoint has renewed its support for Polo at the Manor for a second year. We established a fantastic partnership in 2017 and it is great to align our brand and event with such a prestigious national company once again.
“Polo at the Manor has grown into a very popular fixture on the social and sporting calendar in South Wales and it is always pleasing to see sponsors return after seeing the value of being involved in our events. We look forward to another special occasion on 16th June and another sell-out success on the polo field.”
International polo players will be on show as two invitational matches organised and officiated by the prestigious Cirencester Park Polo Club are played during the afternoon.
Live music will entertain guests before, between and after matches, and the Polo Village will also include retail and catering outlets. A best-dressed competition and the traditional treading of the divots will complete a glamorous day at the polo before an After-Polo Party keeps the festivities going at the Resort Hotel in the evening.
Other sponsorship opportunities are still available at Polo at the Manor sponsored by Motorpoint, including the chance to sponsor one of the four competing teams.
