The World Men’s Curling Championship 2024 will be held in the ice arena at the KSS Sports Complex in Schaffhausen, Switzerland from 30 March until 7 April 2024.

This will be the first time a world curling championship will be held in Schaffhausen, following the cancelled LGT World Women’s Curling Championship 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This will be the tenth time Switzerland has hosted a world men’s or women’s curling championship, with the last being the World Men’s Curling Championship 2016 in Basel.

There have been 36 World Curling Federation events hosted in Switzerland to date, with the latest being the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship 2022 and the World Senior Curling Championships 2022 in Geneva.

President of the World Curling Federation, Beau Welling, said, “We’re delighted that we get to return to Switzerland when we take our World Men’s Championship to Schaffhausen. We were really disappointed when we had to cancel the World Women’s Championship there in 2021 due to the pandemic, so we are thrilled that the team in Schaffhausen have returned to host this event in 2024. And of course, we are very excited to bring one of our premier events to such a wonderful and historic city!”

Michael Stäuble, President of the Local Organising Committee said, “The city of Schaffhausen is proud to host the World Men’s Curling Championship in spring 2024. It will be a pleasure for us to welcome the athletes from 13 countries and three continents and to hold the competition in a great atmosphere.”

The arena hosting the World Men’s Curling Championship 2024 was built in 2010 and is primarily used for ice hockey and figure skating and offers space for up to 1,200 spectators.

Schaffhausen is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Switzerland. A highlight in the immediate vicinity of Schaffhausen is the Rhine Falls, the largest and most impressive waterfall in Europe.
