Season tickets for the 2013 America’s Cup in San Francisco go on sale Saturday February 9 at 08:00am (PST), giving race fans the first opportunity to guarantee their place in the best seats on the Bay.

The America’s Cup ‘Summer of Racing’ includes three months of hard-fought competition, culminating with the best two teams in world dueling for the oldest trophy in international sport.

Racing will take place in the brand-new AC72 wingsail catamarans, extreme machines capable of highway type speeds (45 knots, 50 mph, 85kph), on the knife-edge of control. With the race course just yards from the shoreline, the action in this America’s Cup will be breathtaking and best appreciated live, up-close, and in person.

The America’s Cup Season Pass includes a ticket to bleacher seating in a prime waterfront location at the America’s Cup Village, with an elevated, seated and close-up view of the race start and the top turning marks of the course.

A full list of seating options will be released in early March, including the opportunity to select seating in the America’s Cup Village at either Marina Green or on the Peninsula. With tickets to these prime viewing locations selling out in 2012, the America’s Cup Season Pass is the best way for fans to guarantee a seat to see all of the on-water action.

Prices for the Season Pass start at only $999.00 (US dollars). A $100, non-refundable deposit, will guarantee your seat.
