TOYOTA BACK FOR 29
Toyota will continue its support for Emirates Team New Zealand for the America’s Cup defence on the Waitemata Harbour in March 2021. Toyota is also the team’s most loyal supporter, having first partnered in 1992, and the 2021 Cup defence in Auckland will be the eighth campaign that Toyota NZ has been involved in, making it the longest continuous sports sponsorship in the country: 29 years. It remained with the team for Black Magic’s victory in 1995 and successful defence in 2000; it stood behind the team when the trophy went to Switzerland in 2003 and the challenges in 2007 and 2013, and of course victory again in 2017. NZ is the second most successful country in the 167-year history of the America’s Cup (after America) with three victories.
