Each polo team has four players, unlike other sports with larger teams.
If you happen to watch or take part in any polo match, you will notice that polo shirt numbers go from 1 to 4. It is as simple as that.
By now you may be wondering why some polo stores jerseys with higher numbers on them. The answer is that those numbers are specially used by fashion companies that manufacture polo style clothes and accessories.
Polo players do not pick their number randomly. Each number represents the player’s position on the field. For example, a player wearing the number 3 shirt is usually the team captain. This is why you will probably see most jerseys in polo stores with this number on them.
