The Seventh Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic - Match

This weekend Veuve Clicquot brought the country club to the city! On Saturday, May 31, the brand welcomed a bevy of stars and more than 7,000 guests for the seventh annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park.

Aside from the champagne, the highlight of the match was undoubtedly the presence of the world’s most famous polo player, Nacho Figueras. Figueras was joined by his wife Delfina Blaquier and his son Hilario, who took to the field with his father to play on Team Black Watch.
