This article examines the complex relationship between war, sports, and hospitality. Citing historical examples involving Argentina and based on primary data collected during the America Cup 2015, it deconstructs the dominant view that tourism fortifies international understanding and peace. Internal stability of many nation-states depends on a contrasting discourse of "our" versus "their" and sports competitions provide a safe arena for this. Also, sporting events can give spectators avenues for mitigating or amplifying bitterness associated with unsavory historical events involving the country of the competing team, depending upon who wins. Based on content analysis of social media posts made by the spectators of America Cup 2015, we identify three clusters, each reflecting a specific implication for international peace.
