The World Mixed Doubles and World Senior Curling Championships 2024 will take place from 20–27 April at the Oestersund Arena in Sweden.
Oestersund is located in Jamtland, the middle of Sweden, at the shores of the country’s fifth-largest lake, Storsjön. The city is the region’s cultural and economic centre and is home to over fifty thousand people.
Oestersund is one of Sweden’s best organisers of sports events. It previously hosted the world cups in biathlon and cross-country skiing, as well as the qualifying tournament for the Paralympic Games in parahockey.
The city has welcomed numerous World Curling events since 1999: the World Junior Curling Championships in 1999, 2008 and 2012, the World Junior-B Championships in 2017, the World Mixed Doubles Championship and World Senior Championships in 2018 and most recently, the Le Gruyère AOP European Curling Championships 2022.
Both events will be held in the Oestersund Arena, a modern, flexible and accessible facility, opened in 2013. It hosts two large halls for ice hockey and figure skating, gymnastic halls and a restaurant.
World Curling Federation Head of Competitions, Eeva Roethlisberger said, “We’re very excited that Oestersund will once again play host to World Curling events. I’m certain that the Local Organising Committee will put on exceptional championships, based on their warm hospitality and previous experiences.
“They have done an amazing job hosting the Le Gruyère AOP European Curling Championships 2022 and I’m convinced that our mixed doubles and seniors’ teams will greatly enjoy playing there, too.”
Local Organising Committee President, Per Bergman, said: “We are very proud to once again work with the World Curling Federation in a major championship and that the Federation chose to locate the World Mixed Doubles and World Senior Championships 2024 in Oestersund.
