By; JACOB ONJEWU DICKSON
As the Abuja Unity Polo Tournament gallops off at the Guards Brigade Polo Club Asokoro tomorrow (Tuesday), four teams are expected to compete for the high goal category in this year’s edition.
Captain of the club, Mustapha Junaid disclosed this while speaking exclusively to New Nigerian Sports.
According to him, polo lovers are looking forward to the tournament which is part of the annual Abuja Carnival.
“We are prepared for the tournament which is one of the biggest in Nigeria. Let me assure Polo lovers that the Unity Tournament is well organized and it gets bigger every year,” he assured.
When asked if the Abuja tourney can now be compared to the Kaduna International Polo Tournament, he said that would be impossible.
“In the entire Africa, no tournament can be compared to the Kaduna Polo Tournament. Kaduna has the most prestigious Polo trophy in Africa; Georgian Cup, that gives it an edge over others,” he said.
The Unity Polo Tournament is expected to end on Sunday and would feature 20 teams.
The first edition was held in November 2009.
