The decision to host the next America’s Cup in Barcelona ruffled the feathers of some fans, but the Defender is happy with how the venue is shaping up. The process of allocating team bases, spectator zones and the race village is underway.
“I cannot speak highly enough of the work and commitment that has gone into getting us to this point with the Port de Barcelona,” says Grant Dalton, CEO of Emirates Team New Zealand. “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.”
The bases will be allocated based on the order teams’ challenges were accepted, with Challenger INEOS Team Britannia choosing second, followed by Alinghi Red Bull Racing, Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli and American Magic.
