2017 East Coast Open Format

The 2017 East Coast Open will be played with 2 brackets of 2 teams. Teams

play cross bracket so everyone gets 2 bracket games and all 4 are ranked

together on record. In the case of tied records, who beat who will be used to

break a 2-way tie when two teams and only the two teams have played each

other, and USPA one man penalty shootout tiebreaker will be used to break

any ties on record between two teams who have not played each other OR

are in a 3-way tie or more, regardless of whether 2 of the teams in the three

way tie have played each other.

Semifinal pairings

1) #1 ranked team plays #4 ranked team

2) #2 ranked team plays #3 ranked team

Semifinal games are scheduled for Wednesday, September 6th.

Each team to lose their semifinal game will advance to the Tommy B. Glenn

Subsidiary Cup, scheduled for Saturday, September 9th.

Each team to win their semifinal game will advance to the East Coast Open

Final scheduled for Sunday, September 10th.

In the case of bad weather semifinal matches may be moved to Thursday,

September 7th or Friday, September 8th. If Semifinal matches have not been

played by September 8th the top 2 ranked teams from bracket play will

advance to the East Coast Open Final and the bottom 2 teams will advance

to the Tommy B. Glenn Subsidiary Cup.

All games will be played under International Rules with a tournament

condition to the Penalty 2. Penalty 2’s taken from the 30 yard line will not

be defended.


Each team is required to provide 2 umpire horses suitable to 20-goal polo.

If an umpire deems a horse unfit for the job he may refuse the horse in

which case a suitable horse must be provided immediately.

The USPA Polo Network will be present to live stream all matches. Instant

replay will be set up for the umpires to use the triggers, but teams will not be

able to challenge.

If you have any questions comments or concerns please address them to the

Host Tournament Committee.
