Teams will be housed in bases on Hobson Wharf, Wynyard Wharf and in the Viaduct Events Centre. Bases will be accessible to the public to view teams' daily operations, training and launching and return of their AC75 yachts.
Based in the Viaduct Events Centre, Emirates Team New Zealand will be in the heart of it all, with a new public interactive innovation space to enable everyone to rally behind their team and the Cup.
The surrounding area will be transformed into the America's Cup presented by PRADA Race Village. Open daily to the public, this completely free space is expected to welcome thousands of spectators each day.
