Spain is no stranger to the America's Cup, having hosted the 32nd edition in Valencia in 2007. That edition was won by the Swiss team Alinghi, which beat the American defender, Oracle Team USA, in a series of races held in February 2007. Barcelona was chosen as the venue for the competition because of its modern harbour and world-class sailing facilities, as well as its generally favourable climate for sailing from August to October. The team defending its title in 2024 is Emirates Team New Zealand.

Major architectural works by 2014
Port Vell and the Olympic Port of Barcelona are already undergoing a transformation in preparation for the great competition that will be the America's Cup. As with the 1992 Olympic Games, Barcelona is being transformed once again.
The Olympic Port has begun a long transformation that will end in the summer of 2024.
A new marina will be built with a brand new Olympic Port with a refined and luminous architecture that is even more oriented towards the sea and more ecological. On the agenda: a 24,000 square metre space, 11 restaurants, gourmet areas, a new Moll de Gregal with a great new design.
Over the next few months, the Old Port of Barcelona will receive more than 86 million euros of public and private investment for 17 new architectural projects, including an elevated promenade to be built on the Llevant pier and a belvedere.
See you in 2024!
