The much anticipated Savannah polo tournament scheduled to hold in Abuja and the ancient city of Zaria has been moved forward because of Easter and Ramadan fasting coming up in April and early May.

Rubicon Polo Tournament Manager, Bashir Dantata confirmed that the eagerly awaited 2022 tournament that was inaugurated with pomp last year would still hold shortly after the religious holidays.

He also said the postponement would give the organizers and the participating teams more time to prepare for the high profile sporting fiesta.

“We are working toward it. What remains is to finalize the tournament date and send out invitations to participating patrons and teams,” Bashir opened up, adding that unlike the inaugural edition, this second edition will be exclusive to Nigerian players only.

The Kano born polo patron who led his Lintex team to their first ever Majekodunmi Cup victory in Lagos last month, pointed out that the  planned tourney  is part of series of events lined up to gradually open up the Rubicon Turf to the public and lovers of the noble game.

“We are pushing to increase spectator turnout this year, while creating more opportunities for home based players. The level of team interest is inspiring and we look forward to watching the competition unfold in what promises to be the most exciting high-goal season ever,” he told Polo Royals.
