The America’s Cup Race Village is where you want to be in the middle of the action and experience the buzz of the event off the water. The Village is completely FREE throughout all America's Cup events and it is located in the Viaduct Marina, the heart of Auckland.

    It has been a long held objective of the Defender, Emirates Team New Zealand since winning in Bermuda, that the 36th America’s Cup presented by PRADA be the most inclusive and easily viewed America’s Cup ever. And this vision has been supported by all stakeholders involved in the events. The waterfront will allow a FREE experience accessible for everyone, connecting people to boats, team bases and event. The Village spreads across the waterfront beginning at Hobson Wharf, continuing through Te Wero Island, Eastern Viaduct, North Wharf up to the Silo Park area.

    The Race Village has begun an exciting roll out of village activations. Locals and visitors to Auckland have had a taste of the America’s Cup Race Village experience during the ACWS and the PRADA Cup, but just as you can expect a whole lot of great action on the water for the America’s Cup Match, it’s heating up just as much on shore.
