EMIRATES AMERICA'S CUP WORLD SERIES PORTSMOUTH JUNE 2020
America's Cup Defender, Emirates Team New Zealand, and local organising authority ORIGIN Sports Group have unfortunately made the unavoidable decision to cancel Emirates ACWS Portsmouth, which was scheduled to take place between 4-7 June.
The health and well-being of the public, the volunteers, the stakeholders, event organisers and America’s Cup teams have to be put first and foremost and proceeding with the event in the current global climate would simply be irresponsible given the safety considerations. This decision was not taken lightly and now allows all of the teams to focus their attention on their respective operations in their home ports in the coming months while planning logistics for their move to Auckland and subsequent development, testing and preparations for ACWS Auckland (17-20 December), PRADA Cup (15 Jan-22 Feb) and the America’s Cup Match presented by Prada (6-15 March).
Thank you for your continued support of the America's Cup.
