King Power already has an impressive history with polo and in particular the Cowdray Park Gold Cup for The British Open Championship, the King Power team having secured a hat-trick of wins in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Mr Srivaddhanaprabha‘s ambition is to take the model into Asia and create a similar status for the most coveted trophy in polo in the Far East.
