36th America's Cup
The America’s Cup is the oldest sporting trophy in the world. The 36th America's Cup comprised a number of regattas, including the America's Cup World Series Auckland, Prada Christmas Race, the Prada Cup Challenger Selection Series and the 36th America’s Cup Match, and took place in Auckland between December 2020 and March 2021.
The 36th America’s Cup (AC36) was delivered successfully, at a time when very few other events could take place anywhere in the world because of the global pandemic. Nearly 280,000 people attended the event in person, and the broadcast made Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and Aotearoa New Zealand look incredible the world over. As an event, AC36 enhanced New Zealand’s reputation as a destination and as a place to host major events.
A range of post-event reporting on the 36th America’s Cup has been undertaken by the key agencies involved.
