St. Regis to Launch New Polo Championship in Greenwich

On September 17, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts will host its first-ever North American polo match at the Greenwich Polo Club in Connecticut, featuring St. Regis Connoisseur Nacho Figueras, the Ralph Lauren model and international polo star.

The winning team will be presented with the St. Regis 1904 Polo Cup, celebrating the legend and legacy of the St. Regis brand. The event will also commemorate the 30th anniversary of Greenwich Polo Club and the 135th anniversary year of the birth of polo in the United States. The legendary St. Regis hotel in New York was opened in 1904 under the auspices of John Jacob Astor IV.

In 2010 Figueras was named the first-ever St. Regis Connoisseur, initiating a series of programs to bring St. Regis guests into contact with the aristocratic sport. St. Regis has long been associated with the world of polo; its founding family, the Astors, were prominent figures at matches held on Governors Island in New York City and

The St. Regis brand continues the Astors’ commitment to the sport today with celebrated polo series The St. Regis International Cup, which most recently took place in May at the UK’s Cowdray Park Polo Club, among other events. Visit for more information.
