All Asia Cup is held every alternate year with great success and is known for its level of fair, transparent play based on international and professional standards. Many major polo nations flock to Bangkok to compete for their respective countries in this exciting tournament and consider it the highlight of the Asian polo season. From its first year, All Asia Cup has been recognized as a major national tournament across the international polo community.
The inspiration for All Asia Cup came from the 24th SEA GAMES in 2007 in Thailand where polo featured for the first time and Thailand finished a respectable 3rd. The games were a huge success and Mr. Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha wanted to create a regular polo tournament that could be hosted in Thailand every 2 years to continue the growth and development of Southeast Asian polo.
The inaugural All Asia Cup began on 9th January in 2012 when 4 teams from across Southeast Asia took part in the tournament, coming from China, India, Mongolia, and Thailand. Thailand played against India in the final, emerging victorious after a 6.5-6 score line. In the subsidiary final Mongolia battled against China for third place and, after drawing the match, secured the bronze trophy due to their previous matches.
