The first edition of the 2014 Lagos International Polo Tournament which kicked off on Wednesday 19th February lasted till Sunday, 23rd February where teams competed for the Dansa Cup and Open Cup; Lagos Unity Polo defeated Kano Tripple KKK 6-3 to emerge champions of the Dansa Cup while Lagos Fifth Chukker beat Lagos Shorelines 9-6 to clinch the Open Cup as the first week of the 2014 Lagos International Polo Tournament ended Sunday.
Lagos Polo Club, Ikoyi thronged with luminaries from around the country on Sunday 23rd February 2014 for the ongoing annual Lagos International Polo Tournament held in conjunction with premium champagne house, Veuve Clicquot.
Synonymous with the tradition, the day was not all about polo. Long time sponsor – Veuve Clicquot offered a refreshing alternative to the sport with the exclusive Veuve Champagne Lounge. Sporting the daring Veuve Clicquot signature yellow label color as décor accents, the exclusive area offered guests premium field-side seating in very modish theme – clear Lucite chairs, dummy Veuve bottles as chandeliers, along with plush sofa settings and, of course, a private Veuve Clicquot bar.
After a spectacular afternoon of exciting polo matches and a number of glasses of Veuve Champagne, guests were treated to a glamorous fashion show in the evening featuring select Nigerian designers like IamIsigo, Eclectic Chic, MimiLee London, Grey and special accessories showcase by Polo Avenue.
The second week of Lagos International Polo Tournament – which has a tradition to get turbo-charged, will run from the 26th February 2014 to 2nd March 2014 at the Lagos Polo Club, Ikoyi
