FIP Snow Polo World Cup

The FIP Snow Polo World Cup Invitational Tournament marks a milestone in FIP’s mission to promote the sport worldwide and enhance the image and stature of this great game.

Played on a flat area of compacted snow or a frozen lake, Snow Polo provides the same speed and physicality as traditional field polo, but is considered much quicker due to the smaller playing field. Snow Polo audiences also get to see the game at much closer quarters thanks to the high sideboards right at the edge of the pitch.

Held at Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club, in Tianjin, China.
