Jump on board Te Waka and host an America’s Cup FanZone!
The America’s Cup races start on 6 March 2021 and will take place every two days until the first team wins nine races. The Far North District has been asked if we want to host official America’s Cup FanZones in March 2021. We think this is a great opportunity for communities to get behind Emirates Team New Zealand!
We anticipate venues such as schools, town halls, sailing clubs and marae across the district becoming buzzing venues for watching the races. Council wants to support communities to take the lead. Communities can use the event as a fundraising opportunity to support local projects/charities.
Official FanZones are recognised by America’s Cup Events and may have sponsors attend in a promotional capacity – they may also be visited by news crews, keen to see how even those in more remote areas of New Zealand are sharing in the excitement of the America’s Cup.
What you need to host an official FanZone?
- Capacity to site a big screen
- Fast and reliable connectivity (WiFi or 4G) for broadcast
- Adequate parking facilities
- Publicly accessible/welcoming venue
- Capacity for minimum 100 attendees
- Potential local sponsors
- Clearly identified potential recipients/projects of any funds raised
- Evidence of strong community support for hosting and support of Emirates Team New Zealand’s bid to retain the America’s Cup.
