Tickets for the Opening Ceremony of the 35th America’s Cup are sold out.

The ACBDA announced today that while there’s a “very limited number of tickets remaining for spectator boats on Saturday”, there will be no ticket sales at the AC Village entrance.

America’s Cup Event Authority CEO Sir Russell Coutts said: “It is great that Saturday is sold out, and the weather is looking very good for Sunday and beyond, where a full schedule of races is planned.

“It is shaping up to be incredibly competitive on the water, with the best sailors in the world going head to head, and the AC Village also looking magnificent. For the people that have missed out on securing tickets for Saturday, there should be opportunities to attend one of the days next week,” he added.

The ACBDA said: “While it may be customary for fans to arrive at an event with the hope of buying last minute tickets at the door, this will not be possible for any AC event that is sold out.

“On days where the event is not sold out, this option will be available, although online sales can happen quickly so it is always recommended to pre-purchase.

“There will also be an option to upgrade tickets, from a General Admission to Grandstand seating or the Gosling’s Dark n Stormy bar, provided there is space available. This option should not be relied upon as the primary source of tickets.

“For transport, if the dedicated AC Village ferries are fully booked, public ferries and buses are a good option.”
