Canada’s schedule, new tickets announced for 2020 World Women’s Curling Championship
We now know which teams Canada will take on at the 2020 World Women’s Curling Championship, presented by Nature’s Bounty Vitamins, and also when. The official schedule is now available and all remaining single draw tickets go on sale this Thursday for fans wanting to catch the action in-person in Prince George, B.C.
Fans won’t have to wait long into the championship for some exciting games either with Canada and Scotland, two of the sport’s most historically-rooted nations, continue its rivalry on the ice with an opening-day game against each other on Saturday, March 14 at 7 p.m. (all times PST).
Other key Canadian matchups to keep an eye on are the battle of North America between Canada and the United States on Tuesday, March 17 at 2 p.m. and a game against back-to-back silver-medallists Sweden on Thursday, March 19 at 2 p.m. Italy’s women’s team, which qualified for the event through a last-chance qualification event, will also get its chance to take on the Canadian squad on Tuesday, March 17 at 7 p.m.
The round robin wraps up on Friday, March 20 with a game curling fans will not want to miss when perennial powerhouses Canada and Switzerland play at 7 p.m. The two nations have won the last six world women’s championships combined (Switzerland in 2014, ’15, ’16, ’19; Canada in ’17, ’18) and playoff positioning and/or hopes will likely be on the line during the game.
