SCOTTIES RETURNING TO MOOSE JAW

OTTAWA - The national women's curling championship will return to Moose Jaw, Sask., in February 2020.

The Scotties Tournament of Hearts will be played at Mosaic Place from Feb. 14-23 that year, Curling Canada said Thursday in a release. Moose Jaw last served as host of the annual event in 2015.

"Curling and Saskatchewan go hand in hand and we saw first-hand in 2015 how Moose Jaw supports the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, so I know this was an easy decision for Curling Canada's events team,'' said Curling Canada board chair Maureen Miller.

"Mosaic Place is a superb facility and there is a dedicated group of volunteers and fans in Moose Jaw who will make the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts an overwhelming success.''

The 4,500-seat arena was also home to curling's Canada Cup in 2012.

The 2019 Scotties is set for Feb. 16-24 in Sydney, N.S.
