America's Cup: Team New Zealand to challenge title holders Team USA

After defeating Sweden's Artemis Racing 5-2 in the challenger final, Emirates Team New Zealand are to take on Oracle Team USA for the America's Cup. They will be looking to avenge their 2013 loss to the Americans.

Revenge will likely be on their minds when Emirates Team New Zealand face Oracle Team USA when the 35th America's Cup begins in Bermuda on Saturday.

Four years ago New Zealand had an 8-1 lead over the United States team with just one race to go, but blew their lead and lost 9-8 in the biggest-ever comeback of the event..

New Zealand advanced to Saturday's America's Cup with a 5-2 win over Artemis Racing of Sweden on Monday.
