Curl Aberdeen and the World Curling Federation have agreed a two-year hosting partnership for the World Mixed Curling Championship, with the initial championship taking place from 14–21October 2023.
Curl Aberdeen, in Scotland, has successfully hosted many of the recent World Mixed Championships and with this two-year deal, brings important hosting stability to the first championship of the season.
World Curling Federation Head of Competitions, Eeva Roethlisberger said, “The World Mixed Curling Championship helps the development of the sport around the world and is a key event for many of the younger Member Associations.
“We’re delighted that Curl Aberdeen have once again shown a desire to agree to a multi-year partnership for this event. They have been an excellent host in the past and we are sure that our Members will greatly enjoy returning to Aberdeen for these championships.”
Curl Aberdeen Manager and 2014 Olympic silver medallist, Tom Brewster said, “We are thrilled to be hosting the World Mixed championship for the next two years. We have a great working relationship with the World Curling Federation forming another multi-year partnership was an easy decision for us. We want to build on the success of the events we’ve previously hosted.
“The World Mixed Championship is a fun and social event. It gives many nations their first world championship experience and we’re happy to welcome the curling community into our club and to the city of Aberdeen and play our part in the development of the sport.”
The championship is an open entry event, for the World Curling Federation’s 70 Member Associations. Mixed curling consists of two female and two male athletes – with no alternate – and follows the same rules as ’traditional’ curling with the exception that games will be played up to a maximum of eight ends.
