Spectacular Experience at the Argentine Open Polo Tournament
Dec. 2019
We were lucky enough to be there for the Argentine Open Polo Tournament. We thought we go for a short time and leave, but we spent the whole afternoon there. The polo was amazing to watch (the best players in the world were there) but there was also food and drink and so much people watching!

Review & 101 tips to get the best experience
Nov. 2019
For over two decades I’ve been a visitor to Palermo at all different times of the year for different events and at different levels. Off the bat this is it as far as polo is concerned. Argentina is the best in every aspect of this sport from the players, the level of the tournaments and the horses to this literal Mecca of a polo stadium in the very centre of populated Buenos Aires. Every polo player dreams to play on that field and see their name up on the boards.

The Argentine Open takes place in November and the first half of December which sees the best teams in the world take each other on in this full contact sport. This is a venue for people to enjoy and not quite your Pretty Women scene where it’s all about what shoes you’re wearing. You don’t need to be a polo aficionado to go and it’s the perfect place to loose your polo virginity.

Not so long ago the culinary highlight was a “sandwich polo” (white bread, mustard, mayo, lettuce, ham, cheese, egg and tomato) which BTW was always a winner. There’ve been a lot of changes in the last few years, mainly for the better. There’s a raft of places to eat and drink on site and there’s a pumping after party scene with tickets available. I remember excellent sushi.

A huge improvement this year was the ticketing system. You can buy your tickets ahead of time and have them electronically on your phone, a different barcode for each ticket which is an excellent system and makes life so much easier.

A good thing in theory, but the practical result is that the venue is cashless meaning you have to buy a food card, put funds on it and then use that to pay (even in the stands). Not a great system as prices are inflated and it’s hard to judge how much money you end up expecting to pay. It’s more than a mission to try to get your money back. It has unexplainable smatterings of being taken advantage of.

You may wonder where to sit? Well my recommendation is B central. C is technically the best stand right in the middle, but sit in B central and you’re 1 yard across yet paying a third less. Plus you will get the shade first. Also go for a high row to get the best birds eye view of all the action. However, be aware the stands are very steep.

If you want to be part of the Cool Cats don’t go wearing whites (white jeans) unless you’re playing! Such a rookie mistake to do.

BTW parking can be a struggle, but in Dorrego there’s a multi-storey which is a go to solution.

Now don’t forget that this is of course the jewel in the crown of the Argentine Open, but you’ll be surprised by how much polo is played on these fields throughout a large chunk of the year. Almost all these other events are free of charge with anyone being able to walk in and take a gander.

Excellent Polo
Nov. 2019
We went to the opening day of the 2019 Abierto de Polo. It was the first time we had been to a polo match, and we enjoyed it very much. There was some conflicting information about when the matches would start, and which of the two fields they would be played on, but we found ourselves in the correct place for the first match. A nice gentleman from Scotland sitting behind us helped us understand the rules, and we quickly caught on and enjoyed the matches. Argentine polo players are some of the best in the world, and if you are in town while a match is being played, it is definitely worth seeing.

Great experience but lacked direction

As a newby to polo thought be good to try it. Confusing where to buy tickets tobegin with but ok in end..dont buy online but buy at site much cheaper..warning they dont accept mastercard to pay and need id -canbe photo of passport. Once inside had no idea where to go what to do and few spoke english to help. Seemed was cashless onsite so you need to download cash or money onto a prepayment card...ididnt do this so couldnt buy food or drink. Polo good fun and enjoyed it..saw two matches at two and four thirty...need to understand this as ticket states 12 but thats when admission starts. There are two fields only one relates to the ticket you get...free to sit anywhere on other field.

Fabulous day out
Dec. 2018 • Couples
December 2018 and we easily got tickets for the final day of the Polo season. We had a great time, watching both the ladies and men's finals matches.

Very hot in the stands so take plenty of cover.

Some good statues in the grounds, and a few food outlets and toilets. Promotions were going on.

A really different sports day out, and really pertinent to Buenos Aires.

Highly recommended.
