Top tickets for the final weekend of this year’s America’s Cup international yachting event have sold out after organisers reported high demand.
Tickets for the 35th America’s Cup, taking place in Bermuda from May 26 until June 27, went on sale in mid-December.
The America’s Cup Event Authority has announced that tickets for grandstand seating and for all official spectator boats have sold out for the June 24-25, the final weekend of the America’s Cup Match.
Organisers said other spectator experiences for the final weekend are still available, including general admission to the America’s Cup Village, and access to hospitality areas. Sailing fans can also still register their boat from $15 (£12/€14) to secure a place in the allocated public viewing area.
“The 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda is going to be the best yet,” America’s Cup chief executive Russell Coutts said.
“The number of tickets already sold confirms there is significant interest in the events that will take place in Bermuda in May and June, and with what lies in store, I am not surprised. Competition for the oldest trophy in international sport is shaping up to be one of the most hard-fought, competitive events ever.
“Bermuda’s Great Sound is an incredible race venue that will provide fantastic conditions for these top sailors and in the America’s Cup Village we have the perfect hub for all the fun and entertainment on offer. We cannot wait for the party to begin.”
