Leduc hosting 2019 Canada Cup of Curling
Some of Canada's best curlers will be in Leduc next year for the Home Hardware Canada Cup.
Leduc was selected by Curling Canada and the event will feature 7 men's teams and 7 women's teams in the 15th edition of the tournament.
Dawn Gavin will serve as Vice-Chair in Leduc for the 2019 Tournament and she tells The One News it's a great way to showcase Leduc as a great sports community.
"It's broadcast for 5 days across Canada and throughout the United States so it's a big opportunity for us to showcase our city, our club, our community and all the volunteers as well as hosting the best curlers that we have in Canada so it's very exciting," says Gavin.
The event is expected to generate at least $2 million in economic activity for the city when it takes place November 27- December 1 at Sobeys Arena.
The winners of the tournament will be guaranteed a spot in the 2021 Road to the Roar Pre-Trials.
Tickets will go on sale in February.
