During the PRADA America`s Cup World Series Auckland and PRADA Christmas Race regattas players can also select the virtual AC75 of the defender Emirates Team New Zealand.

Until the start of the e- PRADA Cup all virtual regattas will be held as fleet race. Once the e-PRADA Cup starts the e-game will switch into a match race mode. One on One Match race battles for the first time on the Virtual Regatta platform.

The Schedule will follow the original PRADA Cup Race selection series schedule, simulating all the Round Robins, the Semi-finals and the Finals. The winners will receive over 100 exclusive PRADA Cup merchandise items.
