Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce its new partnership with the America’s Cup, the oldest trophy in international sport, dating to 1851.

Louis Vuitton and the America’s Cup enjoy one of the longest partnerships in the world of sports (since 1983). For this 35th edition, the French Maison is renewing its commitment to the America’s Cup by becoming the title partner of the America’s Cup World Series, the America’s Cup Qualifiers and Challenger Playoffs, as well as the presenting partner of the America’s Cup Match.

Six teams have so far taken up the challenge of racing for the next America’s Cup. The defending champion is Oracle Team USA. The challengers are Emirates Team New Zealand, Artemis Racing (SWE), Ben Ainslie Racing (GBR), SoftBank Team Japan (JPN) and Team France.

For Louis Vuitton, this partnership represents more than simply supporting a great sporting event, it also reflects the trailblazing spirit that has characterized Louis Vuitton from its beginnings and still holds true today.
