About Us

The team at Kiwi Home Defence is committed to supporting the America’s Cup Defenders, Team New Zealand, keep AC37 on home waters, in Tāmaki Makaurau, on the mighty Waitematā.

A recent poll revealed the vast majority of Kiwis want Team New Zealand to defend the America’s Cup in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Kiwi Home Defence was established by a group of proud New Zealanders and spearheaded by Kiwi businessman Mark Dunphy. The goal of Kiwi Home Defence is to assist with, and arrange, financial support for Team New Zealand to create a viable and successful ‘at home’ defence of the America’s Cup in 2024.

Our Mission

We want Aotearoa New Zealand to be the home of AC37. We want Kiwis to be the hosts of AC37. Let’s come together as a crew of 5 million and show the world we are the only America’s Cup hosts for the 2024 event.
