AC Challenge invitation

With two months until the 37th America’s Cup officially gets underway in Barcelona 22 August, Team Australia Challenge has announced its hospitality and spectator access packages to coincide with the Youth and Women’s America’s Cup racing.

27 June 2024


Special team, event and location access is being offered through the Team Australia Challenge website and direct enquiry to syndicate supporters planning to attend with one or both regattas as well as the main AC37 racing.

Barcelona has been unveiling its major refurbished and new venues and precincts to coincide with the Cup that will feature the addition of the first ever Women’s America’s Cup with a glamorous new trophy the Australian women’s squad will be competing for.

The fully revamped Port Olimpic will be home to the 12 nations contesting the UniCredit Youth and Puig Women’s competitions and Australia has now booked their Port Base headquarters to prepare to host supporters.


There will be plenty of action on the water with the Louis Vuitton Cup round robin starting 29 August before the fast-foiling AC40 yachts are handed to the Youth teams for practice from 10 September and the start of the Unicredit Youth Regatta 17 September, culminating in a Match Race Final 26 September.

The Australian women will then start practice days on water from 28 September ahead of the regatta kick off on 5 October for this historic first series that will culminate in a final on Sunday 13 October.

Our national squad has already clocked up impressive podium results racing the other nations in real time on the high-tech simulator with online regattas in recent weeks.

As the team starts foiling on water training, the TAC campaign is also rolling out its supporter packages for members to join the excitement in Barcelona with special access events, spectator exclusive locations and hospitality packages.

By joining the Team Australia Challenge syndicate with tax deductible donations starting at AU$1,000, members gain inner sanctum exclusive access.

Australia has secured one of the limited brand-new dock venues to establish the team’s dock base HQ – with direct views to the AC40 berths, regatta viewing access and hosting capacity. The team will also have its own hospitality base with membership of the exclusive Norrsken House on the beachfront in la Barcelonetta offering prime rooftop viewing over the sailing racecourse.

The campaign has also secured spectating and hospitality access in the all new AC37 club house during the competitions. Dates have been set for opening cocktail parties with the Youth competition 16 September and for the Women’s competition on 2 October.

An Australian team dinner hosted with Patron John Bertrand is scheduled for 9 October at an iconic Barcelona venue with sweeping Port Vell views and traditional Spanish fare.

The Australian cheer squad in Barcelona will have an official waterside bar for gathering throughout the competition and cheering on the team, plus a number of Barcelona experiences are scheduled including lay day vineyard tours with lunch and the chance to bottle your own wine at one of the most technologically advanced wineries in the region – a picturesque location overlooking the coast back to Barcelona which is also an Agri research and development hub.

Information and a form for enquiries are now available on the website under the AC37 Barcelona button.
