Sportsnet today announced a 10-year multiplatform agreement for exclusive Canadian coverage of the B.C., Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario Provincial Curling Championships. Under terms of the agreement, Sportsnet will partner with the four provincial governing bodies - Curl B.C, Alberta Curling Federation, CurlManitoba, and Ontario Curling Association - to deliver the men's and women's championship events on television, online and mobile platforms.

This marks the first time the Provincial Curling Championships will be delivered nationally across Canada.

Coverage begins in January 2013 with the Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario women's events, followed by the men's events in February. Sportsnet's deal for the B.C. Provincial Curling Championships begins in 2014. Broadcast details will be announced at a later date.

"As curling's popularity continues to grow at an impressive rate, Sportsnet is committed to providing curling fans with increased access to high-calibre events such as the Provincial Curling Championships," said Navaid Mansuri, Vice-President of Finance and Sports Programming, Sportsnet. "By building on the growing popularity of the sport, these agreements allow us to expand our curling coverage while elevating the profile of these events, as well as the sport of curling across Canada."

The Provincial Curling Championships are an annual event that showcases curling's most elite athletes from across the country. The winners move on to compete in the national championships: Tournament of Hearts (women) and Brier (men).
