About Prada Cup Trophy
Organized by the Challenger of Record, the PRADA Cup Challenger Selection Series is the main competition that determines the team that challenges the defending champions of America’s Cup. The event has been held on several occasions and will take place this year before the 36th America’s Cup.
The history of this cup dates back to the 60s when the French Baron Marcel Bich grew passionate about the competition and wanted them to include more than a single challenger in for the main competition. This led to the first-ever Challenger Elimination Series in 1970. Since then, the challenger series has gained so much momentum.
The competition involves a series of events before the final winner is determined. Once the winner of the Prada Cup is determined, a trophy is awarded, which allows them to take on the defending champions, which in this case is Emirates Team New Zealand, for the main tournament in America’s Cup.
