“We are so excited to bring Arizona and the Valley of the Sun yet another exciting year for The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships,” Beli Merdovic of Bentley Scottsdale stated in the release.

Top U.S. polo star Nic Roldan returns as well to play alongside the first family of American polo Marc and Melissa Ganzi, who are the event’s defending champions and owners of the Aspen Valley Polo Club.

Among the polo teams for 2022 include the United Kingdoms’ Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club and Wales Polo Team, as well as Aspen Valley Polo Club, the USA Women’s Team, Switzerland and the Arizona Polo Club.

As part of the 2022 festivities, retired NFL player AC Caswell will once again bring his Million Dollar Mingle charity experience to the event.

“As the event goes into its 11th year and we, Bentley Scottsdale, go into our 8th year as the title sponsor, we are thrilled to kick-off an incredible lineup of events, polo matches and cars on November 5th,” Merdovic stated. “We are equally as elated to show off and give everyone a sneak preview to our new Bentleys for 2023.”

Gates will open at 10:00 a.m. on Nov. 5.

“Last year was our biggest year ever with a quarter mile of tents. We maxed out the site and expect to again this year with an experience unlike anything in this American sport of luxury,” the event owner Jason Rose stated in the release.

General admission tickets start at $40 and includes field-side experiences like the Sanderson Lincoln Black Label Lounge and several other DJ-infused party tents including the Grimaldi’s Pizza & Beer Disco, Prosecco and Popcorn and the Riot House DayClub.

“The beauty of this event is that it sits at the intersection of so many senses, creating a unique atmosphere that can’t be replicated,” Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships general manager, Leslie Owen stated in the release.
