All is set for the 120th edition of the NPA Lagos International Polo Tournament sponsored by Guaranty Trust Holding Company Plc (GTCO). The expanded four-week long polo series will be held at the prestigious Lagos Polo Club, Ikoyi, from January 23rd to February 18th, 2024.

The Lagos Polo Club has consistently played host to some of the sport’s finest players from around the world, alongside their equine athletes. Last year saw a repeat of one of the oldest rivalries in the competition’s history, as Leighton Kings put on a top-class performance to reclaim the coveted Majekodunmi Cup with a win over Lintex Intercontra in a well-matched contest. This year, the Tournament will feature a total of 39 teams competing in 4 major league cups including Silver Cup, Low Cup, Open Cup, and Majekodunmi Cup amongst other cup categories.
