The World Curling Federation has today (Saturday 13 January) released the schedule for the World Men’s Curling Championship 2018 to take place in Las Vegas, United States, between 31 March and 8 April.

This comes after the Americas Challenge, being held in London, Ontario, Canada decided the final Member Association to join the new 13-team line-up. Playing in the America’s Challenge for the first time, Canada won against Brazil in a best-of-five series to determine the second and final country to represent the World Curling Federation’s Americas zone.

Canada’s representative team led by Glenn Howard won the first game 15-1 and followed that up with scores of 8-3 and 6-3 in the subsequent games. Brazil were skipped by Marcelo Mello.

With Las Vegas being the first edition of the World Men’s Curling Championship to have 13 teams, the schedule is different, for the last three days in particular. Under the new format, a total of six teams will make the play-off round, making for a full day of intense knock-out action on Saturday 7 April, followed by the traditional bronze medal and gold medal games on Sunday 8 April.

With the publication of the schedule, the opportunity for fans to buy single draw tickets will soon follow. Fans who have been waiting to build their own ticket package, based on their team interests and availability, can do so from 12:00 (Pacific Time) on Thursday 18 January. Tickets for all draws are now on sale at, www.LasVegasCurling.rocks

Ticket prices are as follows: 31 March-6 April - $25 | 7 April - $30 | 8 April - $35

The World Men’s Curling Championship will be held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas from 31 March until 8 April 2018. It will be the third major curling championship in as many years at the Orleans, a venue that has become one of the world’s go-to destination for live curling.
