New York city hasn't seen a polo match in decades -- over 70 years -- but that's about to change as the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic is set to take place May 31.

Asprey's house team will challenge Ralph Lauren's Black Watch team on Governors Island. The RL team will include Nacho Figueras, the face of Polo Black who happens to be the best player in the world. Alongside the field, Veuve Clicquot will host a champagne bar, and the sidelines are open to picnics.

The 172-acre New York landmark island is filled with beautiful parks that will play host to lunches in the park, bike rides and tours of the National Historic District, all in celebration of the island's opening. The fourth Annual Family Festival will take place at the same time with a wide variety of activities and entertainment for children, so there will be something for the whole family.
