The fifth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic will be staged in northern New Jersey this summer.

The benefit social event, which often draws scores of celebrities and wealthy patrons, is planned for June 2 at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. The classic is open to the public, but tickets must be purchased prior to the event and only those 21 or older can attend.

Spectators will watch Nacho Figueras -- a world-class polo player who will co-host the event -- lead his team, Black Watch, against a team comprised of some of the world's best players.

The event will benefit a charity, to be announced in the coming weeks, as well as the Friends of Liberty State Park group.
