Welbeck Group’s Team Ireland Narrowly Lose to Scotland at Gaucho International Polo
On Weds night, 21st March, Gaucho hosted The Gaucho International Polo at London’s O2 arena, uniting high-octane polo interspersed with live world famous music to produce a unique event never seen before in Britain. A crowd of 7,000 enjoyed the event. Welbeck Group sponsored Team Ireland and entertained over 100 clients in a fantastic evening.
The 2012 event consisted of two international arena polo matches merged with exclusive performances from Grammy award winning band, Bajofondo. Celebrity attendees enjoying the music and matches included: Katie Price and Leandro Penna, Denise van Outen, TOWIE’s Lydia Bright and Lauren Pope and Take Me Out’s Zoe Hardman.
The matches saw Scotland narrowly beat Welbeck Group’s Ireland by 15-12 and culminated in the titanic clash between IG Index’s England and Argentina, pitting Britain’s finest player, Jamie Morrison against the Royals’ favourite star, Nacho Figueras. This exciting match saw England finally triumph with a 1-0 victory on penalties, after full time finished at 15-15.
Welbeck Group Managing Partner, Greg Knight was impressed with the event, stating, “It is the first time we have been involved with a Polo event and were all very impressed. It was a great evening, all our clients had a marvelous time and to meet all the other sponsors from City AM and IG Index was a bonus. It is a superb venue and an event we will look to support in the future.”
