History & Innovation
CME Group and the America’s Cup are kindred spirits in the areas of creativity, technology and innovation – and have been for more than 160 years. By building upon a continuing series of firsts throughout their respective and storied histories, both CME Group and the America’s Cup continue to push the boundaries of what is possible.
CME Group has a long history of supporting competition and excellence. The America’s Cup World Series – set to take place on our beautiful Chicago shoreline – reflects the global nature of both of our organizations. As a proud Foundation Partner, we look forward to celebrating the remarkable achievements of sailors from a wide range of countries around the world, whose determination and skill serve as an inspiration for competitors everywhere.
