The FedEx Miami Beach Polo World Cup 2007 is also an opportunity for FedEx to work closely with one of its top customers: La Martina. The renowned Argentine company is responsible for some of the world’s highest quality polo apparel, equipment and accessories, with products tailored for use both on and off the field.
As official suppliers of both the Argentine Polo Association and Federation of International Polo, La Martina holds intimate ties with the world’s top clubs, federations and players. This year, FedEx Express will set the stage for La Martina to show off its newest designs at the Cup on Saturday evening, April 14, treating tournament-goers to an exclusive and premier fashion show.
“At La Martina, we approach our business the same way a polo player approaches the challenge of playing polo: with passion, devotion and an utmost commitment to excellence,” said Adrian Simonetti, La Martina Director. “FedEx has always understood this, and we’re delighted to be able to work with them to showcase our designs on the night before the big Finals match.”
The FedEx Miami Beach World Cup 2007 matches begin on April 13. The tournament’s Finals match and closing activities will be held on Sunday, April 15.
