Prince Abdul Mateen Bolkiah of Brunei, son of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, is part of the Sultanate’s polo team which clinched an early victory in the sporting event.

The Brunei team, which also includes Prince Mateen’s sister, Princess Azemah Ni’matul Bolkiah, won over the Philippines’ polo bets on November 24 at the Inigo Zobel Polo Facility.

They’re looking to take home gold after Brunei settled for bronze against defending champion Malaysia in the 2017 SEA Games.

Aside from the game last Sunday, the Brunei royalties were a draw for some Filipinos who were at the Calatagan, Batangas venue.
