Activities & Entertainment

Curling is a sport where even at the elite level, the athletes and fans share a special relationship… and, there are so many opportunities for face-to-face interaction at the 2012 Capital One Canada Cup.

Welcome to Canada's Party Central

The Original 16 Patch is the legendary heartbeat of the party for Canada’s curling crowd. If you’ve never experienced a night in the Patch, you’re in for a big surprise!

This place rocks all day every day to the sounds of some our country’s hottest bands. Enjoy the wide selection of food and refreshments and meet the most passionate and colourful fans in the sporting world.

The Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre is the home of the Original 16 Patch, conveniently located in the Mosaic Place complex. It’s open from daily from Wednesday, November 27th to Sunday, December 3rd. Admission is free with every same-day game pass. For those who have too much fun, phone numbers for taxi services will be readily available to ensure a safe ride home.

It starts with the exclusive Fan Appreciation Night, Tuesday, November 27th at the Original 16 Patch in the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.
