Welcome to WMDCC 2018 and WSCC 2018

Dear Curling friends!

World Curling Federation has chosen Östersund to host WMDCC and WSCC 2018.
We welcome all players, leaders, delegates from WCF, media and spectators to come visit us
and take the opportunity to discover our cosy town with its variety of shops, cafes and restaurants.

With these events it will be the second time we are hosting a curling tournament in Östersunds Arena.
The newly built arena has proven to be excellent for curling. Both Ice Technicians and the competitors praised
the ice conditions during World Junior-B Championships in January 2017. And You can rest assured we will take
every possible steps to make these both events a success.

We have carefully chosen two official hotels especially for these events, click on the below links for special rates and how to book.
Scandic Östersund Syd for WMDCC and Clarion Hotel Grand Östersund for WSCC which is also our HQ hotel.

Note: Teams can stay at any of the official hotels. We have appointed one hotel for each event to be able to offer the best possible timetable for our shuttlebuses and make it easier for teams who wants to socialise between draws.

With all our hearts, welcome to Östersund!
