Land Rover Palm Beach Returns as 2019 Title Sponsor for Gay Polo League Tournament
February 18th, 2019

Back in the saddle for the third year, Land Rover Palm Beach is proud to be the Title Sponsor for the 10th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament Presented by RSM US, April 4-7, 2019. The weekend festivities are once again being hosted at the International Polo Club Palm Beach, one of the world’s premier polo venues. Partnering with the Gay Polo League (GPL) is an exciting collaboration, especially when considering the tournament will attract world-class talent plus feature the renowned and imaginative tailgate competition. The event is a jewel in the winter polo season.

“Our sponsors represent organizations that proactively support and advance equality and diversity. It is important that we recognize the importance of our LGBTQ allies – the people, brands, and companies who enthusiastically embrace and support our community, namely our wonderful sponsors,” says Chip McKenney, founder of GPL. “To these people and companies, we extend a heartfelt thanks. We are PROUD and grateful to be associated with you.”

No stranger to equestrian events, Land Rover is a longtime supporter of the sport, with decades of show jumping and event sponsorships to their name. Land Rover Palm Beach’s 2019 status will further solidify their pre-eminence in the equestrian sphere. As an elegant luxury brand, Land Rover Palm Beach aligns perfectly with the vision of the Gay Polo League’s flagship tournament; the capabilities of Land Rover’s vehicles equally match the rigors of equestrian sport.

“This is the third year Land Rover Palm Beach has supported the International Gay Polo Tournament, and we are confident that 2019 will be the best year of them all for this event, especially considering it is the 10th anniversary. Our staff and customers have enjoyed the sport and festivities each year immensely, so it was a sure thing to return as the Title Sponsor. We can’t wait for the tournament, and are proud to be able to participate,” said Matt Adkins, general manager of Land Rover Palm Beach.

Since its inception in 1987, Land Rover Palm Beach has been recognized not only by drivers in the Palm Beaches and beyond, but also through industry accolades. The dealership is proud of its 10 Pinnacle Awards, the top-most honor acknowledging the best quality service and sales, as well as being named a top-performing Land Rover Certified Pre-Owned Retailer in North America, consistently ranking among the top 5 in the nation for customer satisfaction overall. A 2004 remodel made Land Rover Palm Beach the largest Land Rover Centre in the country, with 39,170 square feet of space and 32 service bays.

This year, GPL celebrates the 10th anniversary of its unique polo event and plans are in place to make it the most memorable event of the year. As GPL is a platform for human rights, the party on Friday, April 5, will be a fundraiser for SAGE, the nation’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to serving and advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults.

Tickets for the 10th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament Presented by RSM US and its festivities are currently on sale here. Though the Title Sponsorship slot has been claimed, GPL is still offering sponsorship opportunities for the tournament. Custom sponsorship packages are also available upon request.
