Auckland Council, The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), Mana Whenua, and America's Cup Event Ltd (a subsidiary of Emirates Team New Zealand formed to run the event) are working together on a comprehensive programme to prepare for the 36th America's Cup in a way that will ensure a great event with maximum shared benefits.

The infrastructure being developed for the 36th America's Cup will provide a stage for the races and associated events, leaving a waterfront destination that Kiwis and visitors love.

The Wynyard Edge Alliance has been formed to develop the infrastructure required to support the 36th America's Cup and other associated works in the Auckland downtown area.

On 26 March 2018, a Host City Appointment Agreement (HCAA) was signed between ACE, ETNZ, MBIE and Auckland Council confirming Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau as the location of the 36th America’s Cup.
