The Brier Coming Back to Regina

The best curlers in Canada will be sliding into Regina in March of 2024.

The Queen City has been awarded the 2024 Brier.

This is a huge tournament that has the potential to bring millions of dollars in revenue to local businesses.

“Curling and Saskatchewan go hand in hand,” said Katherine Henderson, Chief Executive Officer of Curling Canada. “With Regina’s rich curling history and its passionate and dedicated curling community, we’re thrilled to be bringing our marquis men’s championship back to Regina.”

Regina last hosted the event back in 2018.  The Brandt Centre is expected to be the main site for competition, and the nearby buildings in the REAL District will house hospitality including the famous “Patch”.

“We are thrilled Regina will be hosting the 2024 Brier,” said Regina Mayor Sandra Masters. “From sheet to sheet, generation to generation, curling continues to be a part of the DNA of our city and province. We cannot wait to welcome athletes and fans back to Regina in 2024 and demonstrate once again, why we are the heart of curling.”

The Brier has been played in 32 cities across Canada, from Victoria to St. John’s. Teams from Alberta have won 29 times, followed by Manitoba with 27 titles. New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut have yet to win.
