For years, worldcurlingtour.com has been a go-to site for curlers and media alike for the most comprehensive listing of event scores as they happen.
But that changed this week, and it’s part of the fallout from last month’s changeover of ownership of the Tour from Kevin Albrecht’s iSport Media and Management to Rogers Sportsnet.
It’s believed that Albrecht retained the rights to the old domain, and as of this week, you’re seeing a godaddy.com ad with no curling references to be found — speculate all you want about the motivation behind this move.
At any rate, the good news is that the Tour has a new online home, thanks to the tireless work of WCT operations manager Gerry Geurts, the man primarily responsible for gathering material and organizing the site — www.worldcurl.com.
