America's Cup Refinement of City Shortlist


America's Cup XXXII

XXXII America's Cup - Announcement Of Further Refinement Of The Candidate City Short List

GENEVA - 4th September 2003 - In the process to determine the identity of the host venue for the XXXII America's Cup, five European cities were retained for further consideration in June of this year.

The five, in alphabetical order: Lisbon (POR), Marseille (FRA), Naples (ITA), Palma de Mallorca (ESP) and Valencia (ESP), were each provided with a document entitled Manual for Candidate Cities, which contained 80 questions whose answers would become an important tool in evaluating each of the five cities real suitability.

The detailed answers, returned to AC Management at the end of July, became the basis of each city's principal candidature dossier. Three weeks later all five cities travelled individually to Geneva to make final oral presentations to AC Management.

And now, before entering into detailed contractual negotiations with the candidate cities, AC Management has decided it must reduce the current city list. AC Management will publish this new short list on its website (www.americascup.com) and by Press Release, on Friday 5th September 2003 before noon CET.

Following Team Alinghi's America's Cup victory in Auckland in March 2003, the Société Nautique de Genève (SNG), the new trustee of the Cup, has appointed AC Management Ltd (ACM) to organise the 32nd America's Cup, including selection of the host city.
