Palm Beach Illustrated announced recently that it will sponsor a high-goal polo team for the International Polo Club Palm Beach’s 2015 season in Wellington.
The Palm Beach Illustrated polo team made its debut during the 2015 Ylvisaker Cup on Feb. 5, when play began in competition with FlexJet. The team’s lineup included Jared Zenni, Tommy Collingwood, Facundo Obregon and Michael Dorignac. Zenni, Collingwood and Obregon played for Palm Beach Illustrated’s 2014 team, while Dorignac rounds out the roster for 2015.
In addition to the Ylvisaker Cup, the Palm Beach Illustrated team is entered into the Iglehart Cup tournament. A field of 13 teams is expected to compete in the 20-goal season at IPC.
“We’re excited to continue our commitment to the sport by sponsoring a team for the second consecutive year,” Group Publisher Terry Duffy said. “With our company’s annual publication of the International Polo Club Palm Beach magazine and all things polo, this is a natural brand extension.”
All four members of the Palm Beach Illustrated polo team have significant tournament experience. In the 2014 season, the team had a 3-0 record during the qualifying rounds of the Ylvisaker Cup, and then secured a 2-0 record in the Iglehart Cup, which propelled the team into the finals.
