Number of likely challengers for America's Cup rises to five .

The number of likely challengers for the 2021 America's Cup has risen to five, with at least several more possible.

Team New Zealand has confirmed two of the eight late entries received by the deadline of November 30 are eligible for immediate acceptance.

"For all the times I've been in the cup, I've never seen so many challenger teams trying to enter," Team New Zealand's chief operating officer Kevin Shoebridge told Auckland councillors at a meeting on Thursday.

Shoebridge said two confirmed teams were already meeting architects and builders about base construction in Auckland. 

A final number of eligible challengers could be known either by the end of next week or by Christmas.

The defender has not named the teams now eligible, which come on top of the announced challenges from Italy's Prada, Britain's Ineos Team UK, and American Magic.

Team France has confirmed that following its 2017 campaign in Bermuda, it had not found enough funding to compete in Auckland.

As it stands, six teams, including the defender, can start in 2021, and the Cup Village as it is currently designed can accommodate eight.

    A further issue is that video games are normally serious as the name indicated with the primary focus on knowing things rather than amusement. Although, it has an entertainment aspect to keep your young ones engaged, each game is generally designed to improve a specific expertise or area, such as mathematics or science. Thanks for your posting.
