Designated “fan zones” will accommodate supporters of hometown curling teams when the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings glides into MTS Centre next month.
Special areas will be set up for fans wanting to cheer on Jennifer Jones, Jeff Stoughton, Chelsea Carey and Mike McEwen. A total of 16 teams are competing in the tournament, held December 1-8.
“We know there’s going to be a lot of passionate people in the stands cheering on these teams,” said host committee chair Mitch Tarapasky. “A lot of them will be family and personal friends of the athletes and we want to make sure they have the opportunity to share this exciting experience. But even if you’re just a fan of one of the teams, pick your seat in their section because it’s going to be a whole lot of fun.”
The Winnipeg team fan zones are situated in the following sections:
- Team Jennifer Jones (210, 310, 311)
- Team Jeff Stoughton (215, 316, 317)
- Teams Chelsea Carey/Mike McEwen (201, 301, 302)
Single-draw tickets are $27.50 for the round-robin games, $32.50 for the men’s and women’s semifinals and $42.50 for the two championship finals. Tickets can be purchased by visiting curling.ca/tickets or by calling 1-877-985-2875.
