Why Gladiator Polo™ will be the BEST NIGHT of the Fall!

Oct 12, 2017 - 3:30 PM

Throughout the fall at the Tryon International Equestrian Center, Gladiator Polo™ brought nights we will never forget with the Battle for South Carolina and the Battle for North Carolina! Are you ready to see who will become the champion at the Battle for the Carolinas?!

Team Greenville, presented by Greenville Turf and Tractor, emerged victorious for South Carolina and Team Asheville, presented by Ingles, earned the victory for North Carolina.

You don’t want to miss your LAST CHANCE to see Gladiator Polo™  this year at TIEC on Saturday, September 30th! Follow along through our re-cap as to why we think the Gladiator Polo™ Battle for the Carolinas presented by Coca-Cola will be one of the absolute BEST nights of the fall… we’ll see you Saturday!

P.S. Purchase your Argentine Asado tickets here!

1. The kids will LOVE it!

Whether your kids get to dress up as Gladiators, ride the carousel, get their face painted, meet the players, or play Gladiator games, we guarantee they will be telling all of their friends about Gladiator Polo™ when they go back to school on Monday!





2. The team rivalry is intense!

Whether you are cheering for #TeamGreenville or #TeamAsheville, the players went all out to the best of their abilities in order to secure a win against their opposing teams!

3. Fans will be on the edge of their seats!

Just like the players fight to the end, fans are also going crazy down to the last second. The players even said it themselves –  the harder the fans cheer, the harder they will play! So, let them hear you!

Dress in your team colors, and sit on your team’s side to show who YOU want to bring home that Championship! Team Greenville will be in black, and Team Asheville will be wearing purple. So show up, and show out for your team!

(P.S. did we mention cheering is encouraged?)





4. The weather is always perfect.

The skies clear up and cooler temperatures will begin to roll in, creating a picturesque and perfect night. Ahh, we love fall…

6. The half-time show is impressive

With cheerleaders, mini ponies, coca cola, music, and more – there is no stopping the entertainment just because the players are on a break!





7. The celebration lasts ALL night long!

The players celebrated accordingly in their Coca Cola spray, but the after party at the Silo Bar was the place to be! Get ready for another fun night this weekend!




So, who will it be? Team Asheville, or Team Greenville?

Come out and watch for yourselves as the most exciting night of the fall unfolds at TIEC. Want in on the front row action? Purchase your Argentine Asado tickets here! (However, general admission is free, just like always!)
