City Events Announce Chesterton Humberts as Title Sponsor for Polo in the Park 2014
With the polo season just around the corner, Managing Director at City Events, Rory Heron is delighted to announce Chesterton Humberts as the title sponsor of this year's event, returning to Hurlingham Park for its sixth year. Chesterton Humberts is a residential property specialist offering a wide range of estate agency and consultancy services to clients across London, the UK and internationally.
On Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th June 2014, Chesterton Humberts Polo in the Park will host more than 30,000 spectators who will pack the stands over the weekend to cheer their favourite team to victory as they fight to win the Chesterton Humberts Trophy amongst a total of six fully professional teams.
"Polo in the Park has made polo more accessible to a wider audience and has grown to become a hugely successful and anticipated event on the London summer sporting and social calendars. We welcome Chesterton Humberts on board as title sponsor of this event and look forward to working with the team to make 2014's event the most successful ever."
- Rory Heron, Managing Director, City Events
Before being ploughed into allotments in 1939 for the 'Dig For Victory' campaign, Hurlingham Park, Fulham, was the world's most famous polo pitch. To this day The Hurlingham Polo Association is still the governing body of UK polo. In 2009 Hammersmith and Fulham Council, alongside City Events, re-built the historical pitch and rejuvenated much of the park. With the same turf-team that handle Wembley Stadium, Hurlingham Park received an incredible makeover resulting in the re-build of 'Hurlingham Pitch One' and saw the return of polo as Hurlingham had never seen it before. Imagine the sense of history and pride the teams will feel as they gallop out onto the pitch in June to bring Polo back to its spiritual home for the sixth time.
Chesterton Humberts has been involved with Polo in the Park event almost since the beginning, and has helped the event grow in size and popularity for the past three years in its capacity as exclusive property partner. This year, however, it has upped its involvement to become title sponsor and is working closely with City Events to ensure that this year's Chesterton Humberts Polo in the Park is the best yet.
"This is a huge deal for Chesterton Humberts as it is one of, if not the biggest sporting sponsorship in the industry and will allow us to celebrate one of London's most exciting social events with our clients, our staff and the communities in which we work everyday.
With a network of nearly 30 London offices, 11 of which are in southwest London, we are working very closely with the organisers and our branches to try and involve as many local residents and community groups as possible, whilst ensuring that the event remains accessible and enjoyable to a wider London and UK audience."
- Giles Milner, Marketing Director, Chesterton Humberts
