The St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow has always been an exciting event and tournament that people look forward to. This year for the 27th edition of the tournament the format has been modified to make it a Nations Cup tournament. In the earlier editions of the tournament the teams participating were known by the names of their sponsors, but this year the teams will represent their patron’s country of origin.
The tournament will be staged this month on the frozen lake of St. Moritz. The countries participating in the tournament are France, Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland. The matches will be played from January 27 onwards with the finals taking place on the 30th of January 2011. The patrons of the teams this year are Philipp Maeder for Switzerland, Vivek Rawal for Great Britain, Thomas Wolfensberger representing Germany and François Le Barazer, playing for France.
The players participating in the tournament this year would be motivated more as they would be representing their country. The organizers are also confident that converting to a Nations Cup the tournament will become even more thrilling and attract more spectator support. The St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow, 2011 will have the highest level of play on snow on display.
