Kimberley curlers choose live every time
The popularity of curling has soared in recent years as millions of fans around the world are drawn to television broadcasts showcasing the talents of the finest players in the game.
But, as the sport embarks on another new season, more and more fans across Canada are discovering the unique experience of live championship curling!
There are so many reasons why “You Gotta Be There” for championship curling. With the Capital One Canada Cup set to launch the new Season of Champions, November 30 – December 4 in Cranbrook, a group of local curlers sat down in the Kimberley Curling Club to discuss why they’re gonna be there! The conversation was recently featured in a fascinating article in the Cranbrook Daily Bulletin.
There’s nothing quite like the atmosphere in the arena with a capacity crowd cheering on their favourite team… many of them wearing the home colours and proudly waving their flags.
Unlike any other sport, a unique relationship exists between the athletes and fans. And, every Season of Champions event presents a number of opportunities to share time with the competitors at a personal level.
Team Autograph sessions give fans the chance meet face-to-face with all the players. Up Close and Personal interviews feature candid discussions with the biggest names in the game. And then there’s the Patch – curling’s legendary party place where fans and competitors alike gather to enjoy a bite, a beverage and dance to the sounds of Canada’s hottest bands.
Some may prefer the televised version because it offers the benefit of expert analysis. Now, you can have it both ways! Every TSN broadcast is carried on FM radio so you can be part of the live experience and still take in all the insights from the experts.
