The World Curling Federation and Curling Canada issued a joint statement Wednesday confirming the 2019 event will be held at the ENMAX Centre in Lethbridge from March 30-April 7.

Canada will be represented at the tournament by the winner of the 2019 Tim Hortons Brier in Brandon, Man.

It’s the fourth time the men’s championship will be hosted in Alberta. It was held in Calgary in 1964, marking the first time Scotland did not host the championship. Edmonton hosted in 2007 and 2017.

While Lethbridge will welcome the men’s championship for the first time, the city was the site of the 2012 world women’s championship, the 2017 world mixed doubles championship and the 2017 world seniors’ championships.
