You can kick off your Christmas shopping season with a perfect stocking-stuffer when a selection of single-draw tickets for the 2019 Tim Hortons Brier, presented by AGI, in Brandon goes on sale Thursday.
The 2019 Canadian Men’s Curling Championship is scheduled for March 2-10 at Westoba Place in Brandon, bringing together the country’s top men’s curling teams under one roof in pursuit of the most famous trophy in the sport.
Demand is high for tickets, so you’d better act quickly when sales open for this new offer Thursday at 10 a.m. CT.
Here’s a look and what will be offered:
- Weekday Mornings (Monday to Wednesday): $22.50
- Weekday Afternoons (Monday to Wednesday) $27.50
- Sunday and Weekday Evenings (Monday to Wednesday): $32.25

Other options include day packages starting at $59, the opening weekend package for $119, and the championship weekend package at $229. Full event packages are also still available.
A special offer for youth ages 17 and under is also being introduced on Thursday. Youth tickets for Draws 1 through 17 are priced at $15 (fees and taxes included).
All prices are per ticket and, other than the youth tickets, are subject to standard facility and ticket service fees, and are available at the Westoba Place Box Office, online at curling.ca/tickets or by calling 204-726-3555.
Remaining single-draw tickets, for the championship pool round-robin games on Friday as well as for the closing weekend playoff games, will go on sale Jan. 17.
Team Manitoba fans can plan around the round-robin schedule for the first few days of the 2019 Tim Hortons Brier. Once the preliminary round is complete and the top four teams from each pool move into the Championship Pool, the remainder of the schedule will be set.
The home-province team will play in the opening draw on Saturday, March 2, and also will be featured in Draws 3 and 5 (both on Sunday), 7 (on Monday), 9 and 11 (both on Tuesday) and 13 (on Wednesday).
Once the provincial/territorial champions are set, the seedings will be determined for the two eight-team pools — one of which will feature two-time defending champion Brad Gushue and his Team Canada foursome from St. John’s.
In addition to being a part of the world’s most famous curling competition inside Westoba Place, you’ll also be a part of the world’s most famous curling party, the Patch — just a short covered walk away from the arena at the adjacent Manitoba Room at the Keystone Centre, where you can check out live music, have a meal and mingle with players and fellow fans from all over Canada.
