A Passionate

Polo Patron.

ALSHAIR FIYAZ

A fan of top-class polo, in early 2006 Alshair oversaw the creation of a new polo team, Polo Team F. The team has achieved a string of successes worldwide – having taken home the International Polo Cup, the Jaeger La Couture Polo Master, the Farewell Cup and the Côte d ‘Azur Cup, as well as reaching the quarter-finals of the prestigious Golden Cup.

Today Alshair is the proud owner of Polo Club Saint Tropez, based in Gassin in the French Riviera. With a climate and setting ideal for polo, the Club hosts both the Côte d’Azur Cup and the Open du Soleil high-goal tournaments, as well as the prestigious British Polo Day St Tropez – most recently in May 2019. His passion for polo stems from its ability to bring together people from across the world.

Alshair has overseen the recent transformation of the club into a modern, world-class resort. In addition to offering first-rate professional facilities for players and spectators across the polo calendar, Polo Club Saint Tropez hosts a polo school and infrastructure for the full range of equestrian training. Water for the ground and stables is sustainably sourced, with no impact on the mains supply. The country club boasts a gourmet restaurant, luxury accommodation, and a sports and wellness centre for spectators, players, recreational riders and holidaymakers alike in the heart of the Riviera.

While keen to build the club into a top destination for global polo, Alshair also seeks to broaden its appeal and benefit the wider community in St Tropez – and so is promoting use of the facilities by both visiting sports teams and local schoolchildren.
