America's cup


Between August 22 and October 27, 2024, Barcelona will host the 37th edition of the America’s Cup, the oldest sporting competition in history and the most important one in the world of sailing.

With this spectacular regatta, Barcelona will become the first city in the world to host the three global sporting events with the most audience: the Olympics, the football World Cup and the America’s Cup.

The participating teams are based in Port Vell, where several areas for watching the regattas will be set up, in addition to the Race Village on Moll de la Fusta quay, which can be entered free of charge, and the new Port Olímpic, which is opening this summer after an in-depth transformation.

State-of-the-art vessels equipped with hydrofoils will fly over the waters of Barcelona’s beaches at almost 100 km/hour in an attempt to come in first in a race with only one winner.
