The historic Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club (GRPC) entered a new era on Friday with the commemoration of the Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Polo ground to mark 25 glorious years of the club.

Ever open to change in the year 2020, Ghantoot renamed its main polo field to honor the support and passion of its founder HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his son Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

To celebrate the auspicious occasion in its Anniversary year, the club staged an entertaining Sultan Bin Zayed al Nahyan exhibition polo match between Ghantoot Yas Properties and Ghantoot Maserati

“Since it’s founding in 1994, the club has grown steadily from a unique sports model into a proud and permanent headquarters in the UAE for top-level polo,” said HE Zayed Khalifa Zayed Alaboudi Al Zaabi, Ghantoot’s Executive Director.

“It gives me great pleasure to congratulate HH Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed, our patron, on 25 glorious years of sport and entertainment at this beautiful sporting facility.

“I assure that Ghantoot will conduct special activities and events during this milestone year and I invite all our patrons, sponsors and fans to join us in celebrating the 25th Anniversary,” Al Zaabi added.


“We have come a long way since the club was created by His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and we could not have crossed so many memorable milestones without your support and I thank you for that.”

Al Zaabi also thanked the club’s strategic partner, the UAE Heritage Club, the Sultan bin Zayed Centre, Maserati, Premier Motors and Yas International Properties.

Speaking about the development, Jad Elias Vice President, Maserati Sales, Al Tayer Motors said: “As the exclusive car sponsor of the Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club, Premier Motors along with Maserati congratulates the Ghantoot Racing and Polo Club on celebrating 25 years. It is an important milestone in the history of the Club and we wish them all success for the future.”
