What is the Curling Canada Brier?
The Brier is an annual men’s curling championship sanctioned by Curling Canada. The Brier has been held since 1927, and is said to to be more of a privildge to win than the World Championship. The Brier is viewed by most curlers as the world’s premier curling championship. Winners will go on to represent Canada at the World’s. In 2020, Kingston is bidding on the Brier for the first time since it was hosted in 1957.
Is the Brier coming to Kingston?
The 2020 Brier will be awarded by Curling Canada in Fall 2018. Kingston has announced their pursuit of the 2020 Brier and is currently developing a bid. By demonstrating a strong level of community support, this will help strengthen Kingston’s bid for the 2020 Brier.
What are the proposed date and venue for the 2020 Brier in Kingston?
The competition dates of the Brier are February 29 to March 8, 2020. Should Kingston be the successful recipient, the draws (competition) will take place at Leon’s Centre.
What is the purpose of the Deposit Program?
The deposit program is a tool that demonstrates Kingston’s commitment and generous community support to Curling Canada. By pre-selling the curling arena, this will help strengthen our bid and position Kingston as a competitive contender!
What is the cost of the full event pass (once it becomes available)?
The exact cost of the full event pass will not be finalized until after the bid is awarded in fall 2018. Based on previous Brier’s, a full ticket package is in the range of $500-575.
When will the remainder of the balance be due for the full event pass?
Once the bid has been awarded, the Bid Committee will communicate the details of the ticketing plan, including payment options and schedule.
Is my deposit refundable?
Each deposit will be refunded in the event that Kingston does not secure the 2020 Brier. 100% of your refund will be automatically refunded within ten (10) business days of the announcement in Fall 2018. If Kingston wins the Brier Bid, deposits will not be refunded.
If I am a Kingston Frontenacs season ticket holder, will I be guaranteed my seats?
No, due to the fact that the building configuration is different for curling than for hockey, we cannot guarantee your seats will be available.
What does a full event pass entitle me to?
A full event pass will reserve your seat to all 24 draws of the Brier, including the Playoffs and Final game. It will also grant you access to the world famous Brier Patch.
What is the Brier Patch and where will it be located?
The Brier Patch is a festival gathering site that is used as an entertainment venue following the competitions. Local stakeholders are developing a 2020 Kingston Brier Bid which includes a unique Brier Patch concept that will be revealed throughout the planning phase.
When will the Deposit Program end?
The Deposit Program will end prior to the submission of the bid in June 2018. However, the Local Organizing Committee may wish to re-open the Deposit Program if they are successfully awarded the bid as a way to continue to engage with the community until tickets are on sale.
