In compliance with the Governor of Illinois's Executive Order and Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan and direction from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity's (IDCEO) Outdoor Seated Spectator Events Guidelines, the Oak Brook Polo Club is permitted to host spectators.

Under the IDCEO Industry Guidelines, venues are allowed to operate at 20% capacity while instituting social distancing and PPE mandates for the health and safety of spectators.


Polo is a unique sport in that it is played on a nine acre field with an additional 2-3 more acres surrounding the field used as a safety barrier and for other game-essential staff to operate. This size of space allows the sport to easily enforce social distancing guidelines instituted and recommended by state and federal health authorities.

As a result, the Oak Brook Polo Club has transformed its venue layout into a limited capacity all-tailgate environment with strict social distancing and buffer zones between each tailgate party. The following two (2) tailgate ticket options are available for purchase only online.
