USA Curling and Curling Canada will start a new event in September 2024 with Everest Funeral Concierge as the name sponsor of the North American Curling Club Championship.
“Our Club National Championships celebrate both intense competition and the club-based history of our sport,” said Dean Gemmell, chief executive officer of USA Curling. “Providing our national champions the chance to move on to international play only amplifies the importance of the event, and we are grateful to Everest for creating this opportunity.”
The new event will pit the Everest Canadian Curling Club Champions against the USA Curling Club Nationals Champions for the North American title.
“These Championships cater specifically to club-level curlers who may not have the time or resources to compete at the professional level but who have the skills to represent their country at a higher level,” said Danny Lamoureux, chief executive officer of Curling Canada. “The event opens an exciting avenue for these curlers to represent their countries and we appreciate Everest’s continued investment in the sport to provide all curlers with the opportunity to shine on a North American stage.”
The Everest North American Curling Club Championships will air live on CBS Sports Network.
“Everest is thrilled to expand our legacy of curling innovation with this event sponsorship,” said Mark Duffey, president and chief executive officer of Everest Funeral Concierge. “Our deep commitment to curling spans nine years of finding new ways to showcase the sport. The Everest North American Curling Club Championships will enable curlers from both Canada and the USA to reach new levels of competition and engage both existing and new curling fans through the CBS Sports Network broadcast event.”
