New look WFG Continental Cup now on sale
- Updated: March 7, 2014
The 2015 World Financial Group Continental Cup is coming to Calgary, Jan. 8-11 at the Markin MacPhail International Arena at Canada Olympic Park. And fans can now purchase full event passes for curling’s most unique championship event.
The Old Classic ticket package, with guaranteed seats for all 11 draws, is now on sale for $219. As an added bonus, every full event package comes with one free adult admission to the adjacent Canada Sports Hall of Fame, featuring more than 50 interactive sports exhibits.
Coming off the success of the 2014 World Financial Group Continental Cup in Las Vegas, Nev. – which set a new attendance record for the international classic – the 2015 edition will see the Ryder Cup-style competition take on an altered format.
Traditionally, Team North America has taken on Team World, with three men’s and three women’s teams on each side. In 2015, Team North America becomes Team Canada – and the roster already includes our Olympic gold-medal teams, skipped by Jennifer Jones and Brad Jacobs, as well as the back-to-back Scotties Tournament of Hearts champions, led by Rachel Homan. They will be joined by the winner of the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier and the men’s and women’s champions from the Canada Cup in December.
Team Canada will take on an all-European side in a variety of curling competitions, including traditional team games, skins, mixed doubles and singles.
It is important to note that curling fans still have until March 21 to save $100 on the WFG Continental Cup full event pass by taking advantage of the Alberta Triple Crown combination offer that comes with the purchase of an Old Classic package, priced at $525, for the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier in Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome.
