Layout confirmed for 37th America’s Cup

The 37th America’s Cup has confirmed the base locations for the 2024 competition in Barcelona, Spain.

“All of the bases are located in the Barcelona Port Vell area along with the dedicated America’s Cup race village, hospitality and fan zone areas which will create an amazing atmosphere in the lead up to and during the event in 2024,” said Grant Dalton, CEO of Emirates Team New Zealand.

Emirates Team New Zealand, as holder of the America’s Cup has the honor of picking their base area first and has selected the World Trade Centre site at the western end of the official America’s Cup race village.

INEOS Team Britannia, as Challenger of Record, have selected the IMAX base, right next to the Real Club Nàutico de Barcelona and set close by to the eastern end of the America’s Cup village for maximum fan exposure and engagement.

According to the Protocol for the 37th America’s Cup, the final allocation of bases for the remaining Challengers is in the order that their challenges were accepted, with Alinghi Red Bull Racing as first followed by Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli and American Magic.

Once the allocation is confirmed, the Port Authority will continue preparations, conversions and groundworks ahead of the teams assuming their plots around the port area progressively between October 2022 and April 2023.

The course area will be set just outside the port entrance breakwaters in front of significant fan zones, beach viewing platforms and a hospitality area.

Following the publication of the AC37 Protocol and AC75 Class Rule on November 17, 2021, the AC75 Class Rule and AC Technical Regulations were finalized on March 17, 2022. The entry period opened December 1, 2021 and runs until July 31, 2022, but late entries for the 37th America’s Cup may be accepted until May 31, 2023.
