Tickets go on sale this week for a curling event that doesn’t happen for 12 more months.
Still, when tickets for the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier go out on Thursday at 10 a.m., they are expected to sell quickly.
The brier is the Canadian men’s curling championship and takes place March 1-9, 2014, at Interior Savings Centre.
“This is a relatively small venue for the Brier,” said host committee chairman Norm Daley. “So, curling fans have to realize that they have to act fast before it is too late.”
Fans looking for a guaranteed seat for all 22 draws can buy the Old Classic pass for $499. Seats can be chosen online at curling.ca/tickets or by phone at 1-877-985-2875.
The Old Classic delivers the full experience of live championship curling, including complimentary admission to the Patch – where fans, competitors, sponsors and event volunteers gather to celebrate the social side of the sport.
The Patch, located at the Kamloops Curling Club, will have food and beverages and a lineup of live entertainment. It’s also the place to meet the athletes.
