In March 2022, Emirates Team New Zealand and the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron confirmed the Spanish city of Barcelona is to stage the 37th edition of the regatta in September and October 2024.
After an extensive selection and deliberation process, Grant Dalton, CEO of Emirates Team New Zealand, is delighted to announce the 2024 host venue; in which he commented that
"Barcelona really is one of the most recognized cities in the world so to have the ability to host the most recognized sailing event in the world is hugely exciting. As Defender of the America's Cup, we have always felt the responsibility to grow the event, the audience, and the sport of sailing on a global scale and certainly, having the event hosted in a significant city such as Barcelona will allow us to propel the growth trajectory on the global sporting stage. When thinking ahead to the 37th America's Cup and the AC75's racing within a few hundred of the Barcelona beach, waterfront, and race village fan engagement zones it will be nothing less than spectacular".
Further details on the venue and 37th America's Cup will be available in time to come, but the excitement and anticipation have already begun. Our team at 37south looks forward to assisting our New Zealand-based clients to ensure they have a Premium America's cup experience in Barcelona.
