More information and context on America’s Cup
The America’s Cup is considered the oldest running international sporting tournament, predating the modern Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup.
In 1851, a yacht sailing race was held around the United Kingdom’s Isle of Wight for a trophy called the 100 Guinea Cup. The winning yacht, helmed by a team from the New York Yacht Club, was named America. The trophy—and the competition—was renamed the America’s Cup in honor of the winning vessel. In the longest winning streak in international sports history, teams from the U.S. won the event every year after that until 1983. Since then, there have been winners from Australia, New Zealand, and Switzerland. The winner of the America’s Cup gets to select the location of the next one.
