The international property development firm The First Group is currently competing at the Threadneedle Dubai Polo Cup – a prestigious tournament featuring some of the world's best polo players.

According to Gulf News, the competition - which got underway at the Dubai Polo and Equestrian Club on Friday (March 5th) - has attracted six teams from across the globe.

While the UK is being represented by The First Group, Mohammad Al Habtoor is leading the challenge for Dubai as head of the Habtoor Polo team.

Tournament manager Santiago Torreguitar said: "The Gold Cup reflects the commitment of the polo community in the UAE and we are confident this world-class sporting tournament will add to the high-profile international sporting events Dubai is famous for."

The Threadneedle Dubai Gold Cup was launched last year as part of a concerted effort to raise the profile of polo in the UAE.
