In a joint announcement today by the United States Curling Association (USCA), Canadian Curling Association (CCA) and World Curling Federation (WCF), it was revealed that the 2014 World Financial Group Continental Cup will be staged in Las Vegas Jan. 16-19, 2014, at the 9,500-seat Orleans Arena, home to hockey's Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL.
This is the first time the event will be held outside of Canada, and first time that Las Vegas will host a curling event of this magnitude.
"The stars have finally aligned. The many years of effort by countless people are finally paying off, and I'd say the odds are that this event will be a winner in Las Vegas," said Rick Patzke, USA Curling's chief operating officer.
