WELCOME TO MAJOR LEAGUE POLO - MLP-USA
Founded in 2000, Major League Polo's World Series of Polo Championship Title Event Series is comprised of female and male players from the MLP's National Polo Conference (NPC) and the American Polo Conference (APC) Regional Divisions.
Polo is one of the few sports wherein the athlete is given a performance rating which allows them to play evenly against other athletes, whether male or female, on the field based on their proficiency skill level. Major League Polo does not require a rating, as all players are deemed Pro level in MLP Conference Play.
Major League Polo was the first U.S. governing polo authority to establish and organize U.S. sports competitions between U.S. City-based pro polo sports teams in 2000 in a national format for grass polo. It is currently led by Kimberly Casey Carr, its Founder, President & CEO. She also serves as Creative Director for the organization’s Apparel Licensing division.
The World Series of Polo 16 Co-Ed Pro Polo teams will continue to adhere to international rules of play as dictated under the Federation of International Polo. MLP is the sole governing authority for its U.S. City-designated pro Polo sports teams (PCs). World Series of Polo Properties, Inc. presently holds the licensing, merchandising and broadcast rights for the MLP World Series of Polo Cup title event series.
History: When first launched in 2000, the USWPF, U.S. Women's Polo Federation, was originally comprised of 8 Eastern and 8 Western Circuit Women's Polo Club teams. In their 2000/2001 Inaugural Season, the Atlanta, Charlottesville, Dallas, Houston, L.A., Miami, Palm Beach and San Diego teams competed in the World Series of Polo Championships in Atlanta.
The World Series of Polo expanded to field Men's U.S. City-based regional polo teams under their U.S. Men's Polo Federation ("USMPF") branch. The two pro sports leagues are now combined and divided into 2 conference Leagues: the National Polo Conference (NPC) and the American Polo Conference (APC) Regional Divisions, with PCs vying for the World Series of Polo Championship Cup title and all teams are members of co-ed play for the MLP World Series of Polo Cup title event Championship Play-off series.
