America’s Cup World Series

The America’s Cup World Series is back to kick start your summer from the 4-7th June!

There’s now only three months to go until the four race teams line up on the Solent for the Emirates ACWS Portsmouth, the second event on the ACWS 2020 circuit.

Here’s a reminder of what to expect from the four days of racing.

Tickets are selling out fast but there’s still time to get yours, choose from the Race Village Fan Zone (from £25) or enjoy elevated views and a designated seat for the day within the Premier Grand Stand (from £60). Looking for that extra special experience for you and your guests, there’s also VIP hospitality on offer in the Emirates Lounge from £150.
