Silver Air, the private jet management and charter company with operations in Santa Barbara, is returning as title sponsor of the 2019 Silver Air Pacific Coast Open at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club.
The polo tournament will be played Aug. 15 to Sept. 1, culminating with the final match on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.
Silver Air, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2018, has expanded to become a worldwide operator with bases across Southern California, the Bay Area, Washington, Texas, Florida and New York.
“Everyone at Silver Air is excited to be back and supporting the premier polo event on the West Coast, the Pacific Coast Open at the Santa Barbara Polo Club,” said Chuck Stumpf, Silver Air’s president of business development. “The Santa Barbara Polo Club and Pacific Coast Open are great partners and friends, and we look forward to being a part of this wonderful tradition again this year.”
Silver Air made history at the 2018 Pacific Coast Open with a Boeing Business Jet fly over, and is already working on new ideas to uniquely celebrate this year’s grand event.
More than 100 years old, the Pacific Coast Open polo tournament is the most prestigious polo trophy in the Western States. Some of the best polo players in the world have competed for and won the Pacific Coast Open.
“We are thrilled to welcome back Silver Air as our Title Sponsor of the Pacific Coast Open,” said Santa Barbara Polo Club General Manager, David Sigman. “And we are looking forward to a most exciting season.”
“To our knowledge the Silver Air BBJ is the largest non-military jet to fly over a sporting event like the Pacific Coast Open, creating a historic moment for our club,” said Charles Ward, who directs the club sponsorship program. “We’re so happy to have Silver Air back, and we look forward to sharing more wonderful polo experiences with them and our polo teams and fans all year.”
