Limited Edition Early Bird Tickets Now on Sale for America's Cup World Series in Chicago

Published: Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Three months ago, Chicago made maritime history when Lake Michigan was chosen as the first freshwater venue to host America's Cup racing in the event's 165-year history. Tickets for the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Chicago race are now on sale. 

Sailing fans can buy their tickets here: http://lvacws-chicago.americascup.com/tickets

Chicago sailors can also buy passes to watch the series from the comfort of their own boats, as well as special cruises on the Odyssey and the Spirit of Chicago.

Celebrating its centennial in 2016, Navy Pier will serve as event headquarters June 10–12, 2016 as fans enjoy seeing high-performance 45' foiling catamarans race by at 40+ mph close to the Pier. The ticketed ‘Race Village’ on Navy Pier’s East End will offer front-row views of the race course and be packed with innovative displays, food, beverage and entertainment. Fans can also listen to expert insight with the live Dock-out and Dock-in shows bringing the sailing teams to the fans before and after racing and meet the sailors with daily autograph sessions after racing.

Video footage of the catamarans in action on Lake Michigan can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3rznhe890y4ny95/ACWS_Chicago_VNR.mov?dl=0
