Emirates renews partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand

Posted 24 December 2019 · Add Comment

Emirates has reaffirmed its commitment to Emirates Team New Zealand through the renewal of their contract for the 36th America's Cup.

 

The airline will also be the 'Official Airline' partner of the 36th America's Cup presented by Prada which includes the America's Cup World Series (ACWS), sponsoring all preliminary regattas leading up to the main event in 2021. In addition, Emirates has signed up to be the 'Presenting Partner' of the ACWS event in Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

Emirates joined the team as its naming sponsor in 2004 when it began its quest to bring the America's Cup back to New Zealand. It remained a stoic supporter through two close Challenges in 2007 in Valencia and 2013 in San Francisco before Emirates Team New Zealand proudly lifted the 'Auld Mug' again in Bermuda in 2017. Now, as The Defender again they have returned the 36th edition of the America's Cup back to Auckland where it will be raced in March 2021. 

"We have enjoyed a memorable journey with Emirates Team New Zealand since 2004, and the response and support we have received since has been tremendous. Emirates Team New Zealand is dedicated and ambitious, mirroring Emirates' commitment to deliver game-changing and world-class experiences to its customers. We will continue to build our partnership with the team as they journey towards the 36th America's Cup," said Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates airline.

"Emirates is also proud to expand our involvement in world-class sailing by sponsoring the 36th America's Cup which includes the America's Cup World Series as well as becoming the official 'Presenting Partner' of the ACWS event in Portsmouth. The America's Cup has grown to become one of the world's greatest major sporting events and we look forward to using this great platform to share and grow the passion for sailing as a sport and bring communities together," he added.
