Sky Tower lights black and white for Emirates Team New Zealand

Tonight we are lighting our Sky Tower in black and white to show our support for Emirates Team New Zealand in their battle for the 35th Americas Cup.

With the score at 6-1, we’re backing the team for that final win tomorrow in Bermuda to bring the America’s Cup back to Auckland where it belongs.

“We’re backing Team NZ to bring home the cup and we’re proud to light our Sky Tower for such a special event,” says John Mortensen, SKYCITY’s Group Chief Operating Officer.

“Auckland is the home of sailing and we’d love to see Team NZ bring the Auld Mug back to this wonderful city.’’

For anyone wanting to catch the action, head to Andy’s Burgers & Bar at SKYCITY Auckland from 5am for breakfast and all the thrills with Emirates Team NZ live on the big screen.

The Sky Tower is New Zealand’s tallest man-made structure and the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest free-standing structure. Based in the heart of Auckland, the Sky Tower is one of New Zealand’s most recognisable landmarks.

SKYCITY lights the Sky Tower for charities or community initiatives that we support financially, to mark national holidays, milestones or other celebrations or events, or as a symbol of respect or solidarity.

The Sky Tower lighting is best viewed, photographed or filmed 30 minutes after sunset.
