The 2012 FIP European Polo Championships hosted by the Santa Maria Polo Club – Sotogrande – 2012

We attended the finals of the 2012 finals of the FIP European Polo Championships held at the Santa Maria Polo Club on Sunday 16th September.


Spain came out winners of the IX European Polo Championship after defeating Austria in the final by 8 goals to 2.

The young Spanish team players were: Yago Espinosa de los Monteros, Luis Domecq, Pelayo Berazadi and Gonzalo Entrecanales and they ended the tournament in a perfect way, by winning all the games they played and beating Austria in the final.

Ireland won the subsidiary final to take 3rd place and the Bronze medal by defeating Italy 5 goals to 4.

Our TV presenter Claudia Peifer interviewed many of the officials including Luis Estrada – the Vice Presedent of the hosts – Santa Maria Polo Club and an FIP representative as well as members of the victorious gold medal winning team Spain and runners up silver medal winners Austria.

Not to miss out the program finishes with an interview with the Irish team – and not to be missed, very entertaining!
