Previously, the BKT Tires & OK Tire World Men’s Curling Championship 2021 and the LGT World Women’s Curling Championship 2021 both took place in a COVID-secure “bubble” in Calgary, Canada, while the World Wheelchair-B Championship 2020 was staged at the Kisakallio Sports Institute in Lohja, Finland.
Opened in 2005, Curl Aberdeen is a purpose built, state of the art curling facility situated in the north east of Scotland and has already successfully staged the European Curling Championships in 2009, the World Junior Championships in 2018, and the World Mixed Championship in 2019.
To allow this competition to go ahead, and to keep all players and competition officials and event staff safe, special Covid-secure arrangements have been developed in consultation with the Scottish government and relevant authorities.
Round-robin play begins on Monday 17 May and continues until Friday 21 May. The round-robin stage will determine the top three teams from each group, who then move onto the play-offs.
