Press Conference on the Protocol for the 33rd America’s Cup

Michel Bonnefous, CEO of America’s Cup Management, on whether Valencia or another city will be selected to host the 33rd Cup: ‘Today we have a natural relationship with Valencia and Spain, and obviously we are discussing extensively the renewal of Valencia as a venue, but we haven’t reached an agreement so far. I imagine if we can reach an agreement with Valencia it will happen fairly soon, so we will be able to announce it quickly. If not, we start the process – for two or three months – to select another venue. We have a few cities already who have told us of their interest in hosting the America’s Cup.’
