The English high season starts shaping up. There are 12 teams confirmed for the Queen's and Gold Cups, a very interesting number. There will also be two new teams that play the high goal for the first time: Andrey Borodin's Park Place and Alshair Fiyaz's F Polo Team. Additionally, there is a very special comeback: Valiente, Bob Jornayaz's organization, multiple tournament winner in America, along with Adolfo Cambiaso.
Another point to note is, with the absence of King Power, the Pieres brothers will be playing in different teams. Facundo will be playing for La Indiana, while Gonzalito will play for Corinne Ricard's team, Murus Sanctus.
The Gold Cup will also have the return of Max Gottschalk and his Les Lions teams. It's an organization that has played in England for many years. This time they will have Guillermo Terrera, Joaquin Pittaluga and Jaime Huidobro in the Queen's Cup. The same three players will continue on to the Gold Cup, with with a new patron for that team: Harald Link, for Thai Polo.
Finally, Spencer McCarthy will put Emlor in the Prince of Wales Trophy and the Queen's Cup, and will be playing with Agustin Merlos, Diego Cavanagh and Nacho Gonzalez.
