Nacho Figueras appointed Sentebale ambassador

Polo star and Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras was appointed an Ambassador for Sentebale in April 2013.

Nacho’s relationship has evolved from playing in several Sentebale charity matches with Prince Harry in the US, in England and in 2012 in Brazil where he captained the St. Regis polo team in the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup.

In February 2013, Nacho attended the Sentebale Gala Dinner in Johannesburg, which marked the launch of Sentebale’s major capital fundraising programme to build the first permanent Mamohato Centre for children and young people with HIV. Following the event, the father of four travelled to Lesotho to meet children benefiting from Sentebale’s projects – many whom are orphaned, with disabilities and are HIV-positive.

Nacho Figueras said:

As a parent, it’s always difficult to see children who are suffering because of health issues or poverty. I can feel and see how Sentebale is helping and changing these children’s lives. It is really happening, and I see so much potential for these children in the future. We can help change a generation, so it’s a privilege to be able to help Sentebale carry out this vital work and I am so proud to be made an Ambassador.”

Cathy Ferrier, Chief Executive of Sentebale said:

“We are very pleased to announce Nacho Figueras as an Ambassador for Sentebale. Nacho has already shown great dedication to this new role, contributing his time and energy to help make a real difference to the lives of Lesotho’s most vulnerable children. He is an enthusiastic and devoted supporter who will be a huge asset to Sentebale.”

Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras is one of very few high-goal players who actively draw spectators and media attention to the “Sport of Kings” – a sport with over two thousand years of history, an Olympic pedigree and an ever increasing fan base who recognise its addictive charm.

Born in Argentina in 1977, Nacho developed a love for horses and the game of polo when he was nine. By the time he was 17 Nacho had begun his professional polo career, and today plays polo all over the world including Spain, England, Argentina, Brazil, Singapore, Philippines, China and the UAE.
