Pent-up demand for outdoor Arizona events revealed by record ticketing pace for upcoming Scottsdale Polo Championships

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) –The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Presented by Talking Stick Resort is less than 3 months away but organizers say the level of ticket buying to date is at the highest level they have ever seen since the event started 10 years ago.

Tickets officially went on sale in mid-June for the October 23rd Scottsdale Polo Party, which will take place outdoors on the polo fields at WestWorld of Scottsdale. The 2021 event will return to its regular format and celebrates the 10th Anniversary for what is America’s most attended polo event.

Current ticket sales are trending at nearly 400-percent over the same period in 2019, with the greatest surge occurring in the high-end VIP sections. Among those reserved seating areas are The Molina Fine Jewelers Drivers and Players Lounge, Barrett-Jackson Champagne and Jazz Lounge, and Prime: A Luxury Tent Experience by Steak 44, Neiman Marcus, Barrett-Jackson, and Bentley Scottsdale.

“We have been in the event business for a while now and have never seen the pace we are currently seeing,” said Jason Rose, Co-Founder of The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships. “This is normally velocity we would see after Labor Day when people are back from summer vacations and start planning their fall outings.

There is definitely a shift in people’s mindsets. They are ready to be back out and attend events again,” Rose said. He added that ticket revenue is not only at historic levels but a full month and a half over 2019’s pace.

Rose said he saw a similar trend in ticket sales during the company’s Bulleit Bourbon Derby DayClub event at Turf Paradise for the Kentucky Derby in early May. Ticket sales ended nearly 191% up for that event over 2019.

Fans attending the 2021 Scottsdale Polo Party can expect to see four thrilling and action-packed polo matches, plus a full day of events within the event, including newly enhanced and elegant VIP experiences. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the October 23rd event will also offer a diverse lineup of polo teams from around the world.

  • The Wales Polo Team vs The Royal County Berkshire Polo Club
  • Aspen Valley Polo Club vs Argentina La Mariposa Polo Club
  • Jet Set Women’s All-Star Polo Team vs Bogata Polo Team
  • Arizona Polo Club vs Grand Champions Polo Club
