The Façonnable Polo Team Participates In The “Copa Tradición Calá Vicuña” Tournament in Chile
Over 500 high-profile polo fans gathered at the Polo and Riding Club Calá Vicuña in Cachagua, Chile, to chill out at three of the country’s most notorious polo tournaments, disputed between January and February 2013 when summer bathes these latitudes.
For the occasion, Façonnable sponsored and outfitted one of the teams that participated in the three tournaments of the Polo de Cachagua Circuit (level 8 to 10 goals), part of the “Copa Tradición Calá Vicuña”. The talented Façonnable team, captained by Luis Vidal (1 Gol), and featuring players Juan Ruiz (0 Gol), Mauricio Lopez (3 Goles) and Gonzalo Ossandón (4 Goles), captured the attention of the polo fans thanks to their impressive swings and extraordinary team spirit. The players caught the eye of spectators also with their sophisticated bespoke Façonnable riding kit, wearing blue and white exclusive polo shirts.
The Façonnable team ranked third in the first Tournament (Copa Apertura) and second in the last two tournaments, the “Copa Banchile Inversiones” and the “Copa Club de Polo Calá Vicuña”. The other teams participating in the competition included: Equipe Zapallar (the winner of the Circuit), Casa Silva, Peugeot, La Florida, Cachagua, Soledad Vial Propriedades, Rauten Sur and Olmue.
The green polo fields are a boon at the Polo and Riding Club Calá Vicuña in Cachagua and can easily accommodate 100 horses in its sprawling 100 hectares of lush greenery. It is considered one of the most exclusive clubs down the impressive coastal line of Chile, targeting the villages of Marbella, Cachagua and Zapallar.
Even the non-players will have now the chance to dress like one during their leisure time. Façonnable is in fact offering the Special Edition Polo Shirts at select stores worldwide. Channeling the spirit of the French Riviera, these exclusive polo shirts are offered in many colors for a special Façonnable polo season that never ends.
