Michael Prince, President and CEO of USPA Global, the company that manages and oversees the U.S. Polo Assn. brand. “As a sport-inspired, global brand, this partnership for the Big Game is one that’s a great match with the DNA of U.S. Polo Assn.”

Produced by Authentic Entertainment and Medium Rare, the sports and music spectacle brought musical performances and immersive activations and an ultra-luxe, VIP experience to fans in Vegas for the Big Game. XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas, one of the most exclusive and top-rated nightclubs in the world, was reimagined with enhanced production and oversized activations for all attendees to enjoy.
