Home to professional sports teams, an array of collegiate and high school teams, and countless intramural and recreational sports leagues, New York City is constantly abuzz with a love for sports. Given the city’s nature as a premier destination in the world, it is no surprise that New York has a legacy of hosting outstanding sporting events. That legacy continues this summer with the Copa America Centenario tournament and the America’s Cup.
Held for the first time outside of South America, the Copa America Centenario will take place during the month of June and span a number of locations throughout the United States, including the New York City metropolitan area. With three matches, including the June 26th championship match, held at MetLife Stadium, the Copa American Centenario will bring world-class talent and excitement to New York City. The tournament includes fan favorites like Brazil and Argentina, as well as America, Mexico, and 12 other teams.

New York is excited to welcome back the America’s Cup this May. For the first time since 1912, New York Harbor will host six high-performance, sailboat race teams, each competing on behalf of a home country. The defending champion ORACLE TEAM USA will race each of the other five competitors, including teams representing France, Britain, Japan, New Zealand, and Sweden, over the May 7 and 8 weekend, with a New York Champion crowned after Sunday’s final race.
