The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Presented by Talking Stick Resort, is making a splash with its return to the pitch by bringing “unusual” elements among and in between the matches.

According to event organizers, the unusual elements contributes to making Scottsdale the most attended polo event in the country.

The 2021 Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championship celebrates its 10th anniversary, kicking offing with festivities at an invite-only preview party on Thursday, Oct. 7 at the new Sanderson Lincoln showroom at Scottsdale Quarter, 15059 N. Scottsdale Road.

Then, on Saturday, Oct. 23, start the day with a brand-new field-side Scottsdale Morning Beer Festival, 10 a.m. to noon.

Brand new for 2021 – The Polo Party will also debut DJ MPower who will be spinning his electric house music sets in various tents, alongside several of the Valley’s top other DJ’s. The 22-year old inspiration with down syndrome has overcome challenges of a learning disability to DJ on a professional level. Also entertaining on site is Jazz Musician Doc Jones and acoustic guitarists.

As always, fans can expect to see four exciting and action-packed polo matches. Since its inception, the event has traditionally brought in many of the world’s most talented and notable polo stars. It is only fitting for 2021, polo fans will see the return of GQ model and one of America’s best players — Nic Roldan who returns representing the former champion Aspen Valley Polo Club, owned by Marc and Melissa Ganzi.

Roldan’s team will go head-to-head with La Mariposa Argentina Polo Club on Saturday, Oct. 23.

La Mariposa is making its first appearance in the event.

Among the other new teams also scheduled to play in 2021 include the Grand Champions Polo Club and the Jet Set Woman’s All-Stars who will take center stage in Battle of the Sexes match-up.

  •  ASU Rugby vs. Prescott Black Sheep Rugby
  •  Brophy College Prep vs Anthem Boulder Creek High School Lacrosse.

Gates will open at 10 a.m. on Oct. 23.
