BMW Oracle Racing, the American winners of the 33rd America's Cup, will bring the oldest trophy in international sport to Newport, R.I., on July 1, where the iconic trophy will be on display at open-to-the-public events.

Rhode Island, host to 12 of the 33 America's Cup regattas from 1930 to 1983, and home to the America's Cup Hall of Fame, will welcome the trophy and team representatives at a day of events celebrating both the heritage and future of the America's Cup.

The cup will be on public display in downtown Newport in the morning and Fort Adams State Park in the afternoon. Viewing is free of charge.
