|Moncton, N.B., will host Canada’s best men’s and women’s 50-and-over curling teams for the first time next year, it was announced today by Curling Canada.
Curl Moncton will be home to the 2024 Everest Funeral Concierge Canadian Curling Senior Championships from Dec. 2-7, 2024.
“Moncton is home to some remarkable moments in curling’s history. The community and host committee always create an exciting environment for our national championships to thrive. This will mark the first time the Everest Canadian Seniors are in Moncton, and we can’t wait to see what the host committee has in store for the athletes and fans,” said Curling Canada interim CEO Danny Lamoureux.
While it is Moncton’s first time hosting the Everest Canadian Seniors, the city has proven experience hosting premier national and international curling events.
Curl Moncton hosted the inaugural Canadian Under-18 Curling Championships in 2017 and the Canadian Junior Curling Championships in 2000.
Curling Canada’s partnership with Everest – a funeral planning and concierge service rolled into a life insurance plan – as the title sponsor of the Canadian senior championships dates back to 2015.
“2024 marks Everest Funeral Concierge’s 10th consecutive year sponsoring the Canadian Senior Curling Championships,” said Mark Duffey, Everest’s Chief Executive Officer. “It’s an amazing milestone for this incredible sport and for our ongoing partnership with Curling Canada. Everest is committed to supporting lives well played and curling represents some of the best ones in the country. We love the curling community and we can’t wait for this year’s competition.”
“10 years of supporting curlers and the curling community is incredible,” said renowned Canadian curler and newly announced Canada’s Sports Hall of Famer Randy Ferbey. “My fellow Everest Curling Executive Committee members, Jennifer Jones and Cheryl Bernard, and I are all excited to promote the sport we love at the Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick in December 2024!”
“Moncton has a long history as a curling city and we can’t wait to host the 2024 Everest Canadian Senior Championships!” said Moncton Mayor Dawn Arnold. “Our region has developed an impressive reputation for successfully holding local, national, and international sporting events and we look forward to ensuring this event’s athletes and visitors have the same outstanding experience people have come to expect from us. We also appreciate what this will mean for local curlers, who will be inspired and motivated by seeing these top-ranking teams play in our community.”
In addition to winning a coveted Canadian championship, the winning men’s and women’s teams in Moncton will represent Canada at the 2024 World Senior Curling Championships (location, date TBA by the World Curling Federation).
