August 30, 2013 (ISN) – Curl BC will be ringing in the New Year in style this upcoming season. It can now be revealed that the first Curl BC events to be televised on Sportsnet will air on New Year’s Eve.

The 2014 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships will air on Sportsnet, with the women’s final taking place in the morning and the men’s final taking place in the afternoon.

Scott Braley, Curl BC CEO, said he was delighted that Sportsnet was airing these events, which will showcase the best junior curlers in the province.

“We are extremely happy to be working with Sportsnet over the next 10 years.

“It is fitting that the debut shows are our junior events, which will showcase our talented young BC athletes. There is a great future for curling in BC and these teams are proof of that.

“The icing on the cake is that these fantastic Curl BC events will likely be seen by a record audience.”

The championships will take place at Chilliwack Curling Club and will run from December 26 to December 31, 2013.

In October last year it was announced that Curl BC had signed a major 10-year agreement with Sportsnet.

The 10-year agreement gives Sportsnet the rights to air all Curl BC curling championships, including the Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship, the Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship and the Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships.

Last year Sportsnet aired provincial championships in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario and attracted audiences well over 200,000 strong.

The women’s junior final will air starting at 10:30am on December 31 and the men’s junior final will air starting at 3pm on December 31.
