Curling’s biggest names will be headed to London, Ont., for the 2018 edition of the World Financial Group Continental Cup.
Curling’s version of the Ryder Cup is returning to Canada for the first time since the 2015 event at Calgary, and should offer fans in attendance from Jan. 11-14 at The Sports Centre at Western Fair District an advance look at many of the teams that will be competing at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
“Having been a part of many past successful events in my hometown of London, I’m very excited to see our city get another chance to host an elite Season of Champions event,” said Peter Inch, Chair of Curling Canada’s Board of Governors. “The World Financial Group Continental Cup gives fans a wonderful opportunity to see the world’s best men’s and women’s players in one exciting event under one roof, and I know London is going to put on a great show for the players and fans alike.”
The WFG Continental Cup is a four-day event that pits Team North America against Team World in three forms of competition: traditional team games, mixed doubles and skins games. There are point values assigned to each match, with a total of 60 points available, meaning the first side to hit 30.5 points wins the WFG Continental Cup.
