About the project
Emirates Team New Zealand will host the 36th America's Cup in Auckland in 2021. In our preparation for this event it is important that we create an attractive destination for Aucklanders that lasts well beyond this single sporting event.
We have delivered the infrastructure required for the Emirates Team New Zealand base. Emirates Team New Zealand launched its first boat in September 2019.
The Viaduct Events Centre on Halsey Wharf is home to Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ), who transformed the building to accommodate the operation of their syndicate base.
In May 2019, we completed upgrading utilities and installation of the pontoons for the base, which provided Emirates Team New Zealand the ability to launch their race boats and support vessels.
