World Curling Federation remove European Curling Championships 2022 from Russia

After an emergency convening of the World Curling Federation Board, a decision was made to remove the hosting of the European Curling Championships 2022 from the Russian city of Perm.

The World Curling Federation shares the international community’s concern for the ongoing situation in Eastern Europe and together with the International Olympic Committee, strongly condemns the breach of the Olympic Truce by the Russian government.

The World Curling Federation works tirelessly to promote its values of friendship and respect through the Spirit of Curling worldwide and we hope for a swift and peaceful resolution to the current situation.

Further details of a new host for the European Championships will be determined in due time.
