Fifth Chukker Commends FirstBank’s Commitment to Patrons Cup

The management of Fifth Chukker Polo and Country Club have commended First Bank of Nigeria Limited for supporting the prestigious African Patrons Cup; a polo tournament which holds annually in Kaduna.

The commendation came at the closing ceremony of the 2019 edition of the competition featuring notable polo teams drawn from across the country. 

The Bank was lauded for its contribution to the development of Polo in a statement by the club’s management.

“We will like to recognise the sterling efforts of our esteemed sponsors, FirstBank. The African Patrons Cup Polo Tournament will never be the same without your support.  

“We sincerely hope that this partnership will be sustained and you will continue to support us in our future endeavours”, the statement said.

The Africa Patrons Cup Polo Tournament is an annual event put together by Fifth Chukker Polo and Country Club to create awareness about the prevalence of Breast Cancer among women in the society.

The weeklong competition which had the participation of over 10-teams saw YY Kangimi defeat Keffi Pony’s by 12-goals to 4-goals for the prestigious Patrons trophy.

Only recently, FirstBank sponsored the prestigious Georgian Cup of Kaduna Polo Tournament for the 100th year, possibly the longest-running sports sponsorship in the world and a Guinness Book of Records potential.
