Following two highly successful tournaments organised by the Adris Group and Maistra, Rovinj Beach Polo Cup returns in all its glory. The official sports part of the tournament will be accompanied by an entertainment programme with many new features. The main star of this year’s evening entertainment is international star Sophie Ellis Bextor, who will perform at the polo arena on 9 June as part of the Rovinj Summer Music Festival. The concert by this leading British singer, known for her hits Murder on the Dance Floor, If This Ain’t love, and I Won’t Change You, is also the first of many concerts of the Rovinj Summer Festival. The people of Rovinj and their guests will be able to enjoy performances by famous DJs, Rovinj Majorettes, and various dance acts. Croatian representative at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Franka Batelić, will perform at the tournament’s closing ceremony.
In order to raise the level of enjoyment for the guests of the tournament, the organisers are planning an even bigger auditorium, and a new modern-looking arena overlooking the Old Town of Rovinj. The guests will be able to follow the polo matches from a VIP lounge on three levels. During the tournament, Rovinj’s best restaurants will be offering special menus dedicated to this event with menu items at special prices.
Rovinj Beach Polo Cup places Rovinj and Croatia alongside top polo destinations such as Dubai, New York, and Miami, and reaffirms Rovinj, Istria, and all of Croatia as a desirable and interesting destination. At the same time, the tournament attracts to Rovinj many celebrities from Croatia and abroad, and contributes to an increase in the number of overnights in the shoulder season in accommodation facilities of the highest category – four-star and five-star hotels.
