Site secure for America’s Cup in New Zealand

America’s Cup defender Emirates Team New Zealand has reached an agreement with the New Zealand government and Auckland Council to race the 36th America’s Cup in Auckland 2021, pending approval by the Auckland Council Governing Body and final sign off by Finance Minister Grant Robertson.

“This is a huge relief to have reached the agreement with Government and Council over the event venue and host agreement,” team CEO Grant Dalton said in a statement. “Our determination to have the event in Auckland never wavered despite plenty of challenges right up until the 11th hour.”

The Emirates Team New Zealand plan essentially eliminates the need for any extension of the Halsey Wharf, which brings with it a cost reduction and situates the team in the Viaduct Events Centre. One team would then be housed on the extension on Hobson Wharf, while the remainder of the team bases lines up along the Wynyard Wharf.

“Excitingly, what we have in the agreements is essentially the start of the event build,” Dalton said.
