Latest update: On June 28, 2016 there was a public City Council Smart Growth and Land Use Committee meeting, whereby the City’s Real Estate Assets Department asked for approval to proceed with a long term lease of the polo fields with Surf Cup Sports as the new lessee. The City Council Smart Growth and Land Use Committee unanimously approved to move forward with a 28-year lease with Surf Cup Sports, as well as approved the usage of the property to continue host soccer, polo and approved special events.
Representatives from the San Diego Polo Club and United States Polo Association spoke about the history and heritage of polo in San Diego. Both parties are in support of Surf Cup Sports’ new long term lease and continued use of the polo fields for both soccer and polo. Surf Cup Sports pledged to continue polo and equestrian activities at the facility for years to come, and with your support, the sport will continue to grow.
If you are interested in meeting the key leaders of Surf Cup Sports, we are hosting an Open House and informal Q&A session. We look forward to meeting you, answering your questions about the future of the polo fields, and finding ways to partner with you.
