Two more partners on board for America’s Cup

The America’s Cup has continue to expand its sponsorship roster for the 2013 edition of the historic sailing race by sealing two new endorsements with drinks companies.

Californian sparkling wine house Mumm Napa is now the official sparkling wine of the America’s Cup Summer of Racing in San Francisco, while Italian beer brand Peroni Nastro Azzurro comes on board as the official beer of the America’s Cup.

From today’s opening ceremony, through to the final races in September, spectators will be able to enjoy both beverages in the America’s Cup Park, at Piers 27/29 of San Francisco Bay, and America’s Cup Village at nearby Marina Green.

The 2013 America’s Cup gets underway in earnest with the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger series on July 7 before the America’s Cup Match takes place from September 7-21.
