The Emirates America’s Cup is going to be a different kind of event from last year.
It’s the first event of its kind in the world to be staged in the US and its organisers are expecting it to be packed out with people of all ages.
“We have had a lot of requests from a lot different communities to have this in the States.
We are going to do it as an event for all ages,” Emirates’ chief executive officer, Alan Ross, told the BBC World Service.
The US’ Cup, held every four years, is also a huge event and attracts the likes of celebrities and top athletes from around the world.
The new Emirates America Cup will also have more than 3,000 competitors including two teams, and will be hosted by the US Open and Women’s Open.
“The Emirates America will be one of the most unique sporting events of the year and I think it will really be a big deal for the US,” Mr Ross said.
“It is a great thing to be able to bring to the US, it is a good thing to have in the middle of the summer, and it is also an event to see a bit of the world and the US as a whole.”
So the challenge is, how do we make this happen?
“The tournament is being staged in partnership with the United States Tennis Association, and organisers say the event will be the first time the US has hosted a major international event on a sailing ship.”
This will be our first major sailing event of the season,” Emirates CEO Alan Ross said in an interview with the BBC.”
I think this is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our sport and the country to the world.
“The new US Open will be staged on the USS Kidd, a vessel that is the largest sailing ship in the United Nations fleet.
The tournament will also feature a women’s team and a team of professional sailors.”
“We want to make sure that there is a fair mix of people from different backgrounds and a fair amount of people who are going into the sport in a different way.”””
There are a lot people on the team that are extremely well-known and there are a few guys that you could say are new to the sport and that we will be looking at from a younger age.”
“We want to make sure that there is a fair mix of people from different backgrounds and a fair amount of people who are going into the sport in a different way.”
“We are looking at making sure that we are making it inclusive and we are going down the pathway of diversity to be really successful.”
The tournament starts on July 6, and has been called the biggest ever sailing event.
The Emirates American Cup has already taken place in Australia, and Mr Ross says it is now time to take it to the United Kingdom.
“A lot of the people in the UK, I think they will be very excited to see it.
It is a really big event for the UK and we can’t wait to get it there,” he said.
