Tallinn in Estonia has been confirmed as the host of the 2018 European Curling Championships.
The World Curling Federation (WCF) awarded the hosting rights to the Estonia Curling Federation at a signing ceremony yesterday (Thursday).
The event will take place at the Tondiraba Ice Hall from November 16-24.
It will be the second time that Estonia will have hosted a major international curling competition, having staged the 2015 World Junior Curling Championships.
The event will serve as a qualifying tournament for the World Curling Championships.
“Estonia has great conditions for hosting championships, and has become a strong curling country in recent years,” WCF president Kate Caithness said. “The organising committee for the World Juniors in 2015 did a stellar job pulling together these championships and I am looking forward to working with them again as they prepare for one of our flagship events”
The championships will attract about 300 athletes.
