Inside the 10th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

“It’s beer and chicken wings for the Super Bowl, but it’s Champagne and lobster for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic,” noted Nacho Figueras ahead of the annual event at Liberty State Park overlooking the Manhattan skyline Saturday. A decade ago the Argentinian-born player partnered with the French brand to bring the sport back to New York City for the first time since the Thirties.

“It’s a wonderful achievement and my next big goal is really to take this live-streaming [of the event] to the next level and hopefully get millions of people to tune in and thousands to show up,” he continued, brushing a hand through his tousled mop of brown hair.

For years, the daytime event has been the unofficial kickoff to outdoor summer events in and around the city. This year, the event did draw 1,000 more guests compared to last. “Hopefully, one day we’ll create something like the Kentucky Derby or the Super Bowl,” he added.
