According to Uako, athletes from Great Britain, Italy, Argentine and Russia will participate in the tournament. The organizers will provide the guests of the tournament with polo-ponies, he added.
Director of the racing track Vladimir Zhukovsky acknowledged that the place for the tournament was selected on purpose. "It's the center of the Russian capital," he said.
The demonstrative polo tournament, which is by the way the oldest team game with a ball, was held last September on the territory of the Moscow polo club, situated in the Moscow region.
Only one Russian athlete will participate in the tournament - Vladlena Bernandoni-Belolipskaya. This athlete heads the Vladi team at the Berkshire club (Great Britain) and is the first Russian professional polo player (since 1996).
Uako, who can be considered as one of the main initiators of the polo revival in Russia, believes it's very important that polo players emerge in Russia. At the press-conference he introduced four Russian polo players, who will not participate in the event this time, but are more likely to participate in the other tournaments.
The tournament in Moscow concludes a series of winter polo games, which have been already held in France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
