This year’s final caps off the Diamond Jubilee of the annual high-goal Gold Cup tournament, a 22-goal contest drawing the top players from across the world. The British Open ranks among the top three annual international tournaments.
"Everyone looks forward to the Gold Cup all year long, and the final is always incredibly exciting," said Ty MacCarty of polochannel.com. “Filming and broadcasting the British Open Polo Championship is an honor.”
Polochannel.com and one of its production companies, horseplay.tv, were founded by three polo players: MacCarty, Matt Baker and Robert Jornayvaz, who have been members of Team USPA. Jornayvaz competed for semifinalist Valiente in this year’s British Open.
The three have revolutionized how polo is covered, using state-of-the-art technology to provide a bird’s eye view of the sport of polo. It combines traditional views from the sidelines with aerial footage from a masterfully piloted drone camera that flies above the action.
Polochannel.com follows polo around the world and provides video of matches from the major international tournaments.
