After 21 years as the title sponsor of the Manitoba Men’s Provincial Curling Championship, Safeway will no longer be presenting the event.
CurlManitoba says the grocery chain did not renew its sponsorship for the upcoming season.
“Safeway has been an incredible supporter of our sport for over half a century, and we’re particularly grateful for their substantial support and leadership over the past two decades,” said CurlManitoba president Sam Antila.
“Safeway’s generous investment in our sport over the past two decades has helped grow the Manitoba men’s championship into a premier event, not just in Manitoba but on the national scene as well.
Safeway says it’s looking at new ways to continue to build community partnerships throughout Manitoba.
The new title sponsor for the championship will be announced during a media event at the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame Museum on October 7.
