Virden to Host 2019 Viterra Championship
Manitoba’s Men’s Curling Championship will be hosted by the western Manitoba community of Virden when the top 32 teams in the province gather at Tundra Oil & Gas Place for the Viterra Championship February 6-11, 2019.
“With the 2019 Tim Hortons Brier just down the road in Brandon, it is an exciting prospect for us to be hosting the event which will determine the Manitoba representative,” says host committee chair Cory Barkley. “We have a very experienced committee and we look forward to hosting a Viterra Championship which will prepare the Manitoba champions to compete for a Canadian and maybe a World Championship.”
“Virden has a proud legacy of competitive curling and a history of hosting successful championship events,” says CurlManitoba Executive Director Craig Baker. “We know Virden will host a memorable event for both curlers and fans, just as they did in 2014 when Chelsea Carey won the Scotties Championship in the same arena.”
“At Viterra, we’ve been the presenting sponsor of this premier event for the last few years, and are proud to continue supporting this excellent display of the province’s top curling talent,” says Kyle Jeworski, Viterra’s President and CEO for North America. “Viterra’s presence in southern Manitoba goes back over 100 years, and our competitive spirit and pursuit of excellence are the same qualities that drive our curlers to be successful and home and internationally.
