To race on the stadium-style racecourse on Bermuda’s Great Sound will be six teams representing Japan, New Zealand, Britain, the USA, France and Sweden.
Passes are available to access to the America’s Cup Village on every race day, each weekday, each weekend or just one weekend. The ticketing office also offers upgrade tickets and family tickets.
The America’s Cup Village Tickets to the America’s Cup Village give access to the custom-built, nine-acre site which will boast live entertainment, views of the racecourse finish line, ‘dock-out’ shows and sailor-signing sessions throughout the event schedule. Overlooking the iconic Great Sound and showcasing the best of Bermuda’s food and beverage vendors, this family-friendly site will also be home to an America’s Cup merchandise store and a dedicated Kids Zone.
The America’s Cup Village will provisionally be open between 11am and 5pm throughout most days of the event schedule, enabling visitors to soak up the atmosphere before racing commences at 2pm.
Grandstand Seats A ticket can enable visitors to enter the America’s Cup Village before enjoying America’s Cup racing from the comfort and convenience of their own waterside grandstand seats, with preferred access to delicious local food and beverages. Grandstand ticket holders have entry into the America’s Cup Village included in their ticket price and will be able to keep up with the race action through big screens and live commentary, enjoying the view of America’s Cup racing as the boats fly towards the finish line, right in front of their seats.
Spectator Boat ticket holders will enjoy three hours on board, with boats taking guests onto the Great Sound and up close to the action as it unfolds in front of them, and on TV around the world. Each boat will be equipped with live radio commentary of the racing, with food and beverages available to purchase on board. Prices start from $150 for an adult ticket on a fleet of motor cruisers and catamarans.
Longtail Lounge VIP can relax in informal waterside surroundings and enjoy a complimentary bar and delicious assisted service buffet lunch. The open-air private viewing deck will be perfect for watching the boats fly towards the finish line and, with screens throughout the Longtail Lounge, there will be no excuses for missing a minute of the action.
With a raised viewing terrace and striking views over the Great Sound, tickets will include a delicious buffet lunch and official America’s Cup merchandise.
Private Boat Registration ticket holders can enjoy America’s Cup action in Bermuda for themselves, with access to the designated spectator zone on the racecourse. Throughout every race, up-to-date information and commentary will be shared with all registered boats, giving them incredible views of the action on the same water on which the teams will be battling it out for the oldest trophy in international sport.
During the race the America’s Cup teams will compete in a double round robin series of match races. That preliminary round of racing will conclude on Saturday June 3, when one team will drop out of the reckoning, and Oracle Team USA, the Defenders of the America’s Cup, will stand back from the next round, the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs. Featuring four teams, the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs are the prelude to the main event and will run June 4-12, by which date the identity of the team which will challenge Oracle Team USA for the America’s Cup will be known.
The America’s Cup Match presented by Louis Vuitton will then run June 17-27 in a ‘first to seven’ race programme (with one point for a win).
