The America's Cup 2013 live stream and TV schedule brings about the final race in what could be a thrilling comeback for Team Oracle of the United States. The race, which is being held in San Francisco, will put Team Oracle vs. Team Emirates of New Zealand, as the two compete for the championship win. Today's America's Cup action will be televised and live streaming via NBC Sports networks.
On Sept. 25, USA Today reported that just a week ago, the US team was down seven points and appeared to be on the brink of elimination. However, skipper Jimmy Spithill was still believing in his team's chances to "stay afloat" in the latest edition of the race. From there, Team USA went on to win seven straight races and made up for their deficit behind the Emirates team of New Zealand.
Yesterday, Spithill told the media of today's event:
"It's the most exciting day of all of our lives and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Mate, bring on tomorrow."
Reportedly, this has been the longest edition of the America's Cup ever, lasting 19 days in San Francisco. The first edition of the sailing competition began back in 1951, with America winning the event then. The race was last held in 2010, with Team USA taking the title in Switzerland. However, in 2007, Emirates Team New Zealand captured the title in Switzerland, making this an interesting showdown between the two teams on the final day of the race. With the Emirates Team once up 8-1, the gap was narrowed in an unexpected fashion, leaving a thrilling conclusion for Wednesday.
Today's America's Cup 2013 schedule begins at 4 p.m. EST on NBC Sports Network for TV coverage. In addition, fans of the sailing event can watch America's Cup live streaming online via the NBC Sports Live Extra website here.
Will Team USA be able to pull off the miraculous comeback, or will Team Emirates take it?
