Ralph Lauren to Sponsor the Polo World Cup on Snow

While we’re all still coping with post-holiday depression, wealthy jetsetters across the globe are gearing up to attend one of the world’s most prestigious winter sporting events. The 2012 St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow will be held at the famed Swiss ski resort on the frozen Lake St. Moritz from January 26 through January 29. Ralph Lauren will serve as the USA team sponsor and the official outfitter for the tournament. 

In addition to producing the shirts that will be worn by the four competing teams (BMW and Cartier are fielding sponsors), the American fashion designer will also outfit all on-site staff and volunteers. The USA team will be lead by top polo player Michael Bickford, and for the first time, Ralph Lauren spokesmodel and polo superstar, Nacho Figueras (pictured here in his official St. Moritz Polo World Cup outfit) will hit the frozen field to represent.

Although show tickets start at an easy 50 Swiss francs ($50), you still need to pay your way to Switzerland.
