In a successful and monumental debut for the USPA-owned facility, the National Polo Center – Wellington (NPC) in Wellington, Florida, took center stage from Saturday, October 29 through Sunday, November 6 with the global XII FIP World Polo Championship. The competition welcomed eight talented teams from across the world for ultimate international polo glory, including Argentina, Australia, Italy, Mexico, Pakistan, Spain, Uruguay, and the hometown team, the United States.
