The MA Cup, presented by TSN

Curling Canada is made up of 14 Member Associations, representing Canada’s 10 provinces, plus Northern Ontario and the territories of Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Member Associations will be ranked in this fun, non-formal competition, by its team’s final position following 10 annual Canadian championships: the Canadian Mixed, the Canadian Junior Men’s and Women’s, Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Tim Hortons Brier, Canadian Senior Men’s and Women’s, Travelers Curling Club Championships (men and women) and Canadian Wheelchair Championship.

The program was developed to generate great interest among curling fans across the country. For years curling enthusiasts across Canada have enjoyed regional rivalries and have debated as to whether their province or territory was better than another. The points totals and results of this new system are tracked and updated at the conclusion of each applicable national championship throughout each curling season.

The winning Member Association, based on the highest average points, will hoist the MA Cup, presented by TSN. Additionally, the Governors’ Cup will be awarded to the Member Association making the biggest year-to-year improvement on an average points basis.

Both prestigious Cups are formally presented at Curling Canada’s National Curling Congress.

2013/2014 The MA Cup (presented by TSN) Champions – ALBERTA!

Alberta’s Dan Kleinschroth and Joan Westgard presented the trophy by Curling Canada Governor Hugh Avery

 

 

  • This competition is intended to be a fun, friendly competition with the winners being recognized at Curling Canada’s National Curling Congress each year.
  • There are a total of 14 Member Associations (MAs) and therefore points have been assigned from 14.000 to 1.000 depending on the Member Association’s final ranking in each Curling Canada operated national curling championship.
  • If a Member Association had no ability to access the championship, and therefore did not participate even in a qualification process, they will be marked with ‘n/a’ and the calculation would not include that event.
  • For Member Associations who do attempt to qualify, but do not make the championship field, they will be assigned either 2.000 or 1.000 points respectively and subject to the above and how many teams are in the final field.
  • At the Scotties and Tim Hortons Brier, for Member Associations that are represented by their provincial/territorial champion as well as Team Canada, points will be allocated to whichever representative finishes higher.
  • The field of strength has been simplified such that all Curling Canada operated national curling championships are equally weighted.
  • Any ties will be broken by the number of wins head to head in round robin play.
  • The Member Association with the best overall average point total will be awarded the MA Cup.
  • The Governors Cup will be awarded to the Member Association with the largest point increase year to year.
  • Any ties for the MA Cup or the Governors Cup will be broken by the number of wins head to head in round robin games.
