The match will conclude with a Trophy Presentation and Après Polo celebration to break bread with the teams.  Make it a full experience by joining the after match celebration when the teams reunite for Après Polo: Amici Riuniti . 

Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina, situated on Goat Island and surrounded by Narragansett Bay, offers the seclusion of a private island yet is just a jaunt from the shops and eateries of downtown Newport. Our waterfront resort is centrally located to the area’s abundant attractions and activities, Gurney’s 360-degree water views provide an ideal setting for its fine restaurant overlooking Newport Harbor, lounge with wraparound deck, full-service spa, and outdoor saltwater pool. Whether you are traveling on business or pleasure, staying for a weekend or a week, we think you will love our gorgeous location, in the “City by the Sea.”
