Canada Olympic Park could host marquee events, including men’s worlds, in 2021

Three major curling bonspiels will not be held in their scheduled host cities this winter, CBC Sports has learned.
Instead, the Brier, Scotties and men’s world championships will likely be played in a bubble in Calgary in 2021, along with three other important curling events.
Planning for holding the events in Calgary is ongoing, and organizers are in contact with the Alberta government as they work through the evolving health restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If officials from Curling Canada – the country’s governing body for the sport – and all levels of government are able to reach a deal, these curling events would most likely be hosted out of Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. That venue would then play host to the Scotties, Brier, men’s world curling championship, mixed doubles nationals as well as two Grand Slam of Curling events.
