OAKVILLE, ON – Curling Canada announced that the second annual PointsBet Invitational will take place from September 26 to October 1, 2023, at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex. 

The 2023 PointsBet Invitational will be the first major event of the 2023-24 campaign. It will allow fans to see the results of the off-season lineup changes as Canada’s top teams ramp up their push toward qualifying for the 2026 Winter Olympics in Italy.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the PointsBet Invitational home to Ontario. It is a one-of-a-kind event with our nation’s best curlers, and we cannot wait for it to get underway in September,” said Nic Sulsky, Chief Commercial Officer for PointsBet Canada.
