The Patrons Cup 2023 has commenced with a round-robin club chukker involving the White, Red, and Blue Teams, consisting of players hailing from various teams, including Habtoor Polo, Al Faisal Polo, AM Polo, Hesketh Polo, and Dubai Wolves.
Tomas Iriarte of El Basha opened the exhibition match of the day, scoring the first goal in the initial chukker for his team. The first chukker concluded without Al Faisal-PBS securing a goal. Al Faisal-PBS eventually scored their first goal with an intense strike delivered by Petra Spanko. The teams maintained a score of 1-1 until the third chukker. As the two teams battled on the field until the fourth chukker, El Basha solidified their lead by scoring three goals before the buzzer, while Al Faisal did not manage to add a goal to their score. Ultimately, El Basha clinched the trophy as the winner of the Patrons Cup 2023.
