AMEX Cup Village Reaches All Time High

America's Cup Village Release

The counting doesn't end for another two weeks and already the AMEX Cup Village has reached the incredible achievement of having had over four million visits.

To date 4,005,512 visits have been recorded at the Cup Village well in excess of the 3.3 million target set since counting began on the 1st of October last year.

The official counting ends on the 31st of this month and it's expected the final tally will get another boost this weekend with two major events planned for the area.

The National Dragon Boat festival is on all weekend with the finals taking place at 3pm on Sunday afternoon, while all 60 vehicles taking part in the Variety Club Bash are due to arrive at 3pm on Saturday afternoon at Waitemata Plaza.

The AMEX Cup Village wants to thank all those people who have congratulated us on the success of the event. We have appreciated all the positive feedback. Our aim from the start was for the Cup Village to be something all New Zealanders could be proud of, somewhere where everyone felt welcome. It seems four million people would agree we got it right.
