The World Men’s Curling Championship will be at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas starting March 31 through April 8.

A total of 13 teams from the European Zone, Americas Zone and Pacific-Asia Zone will compete for the championship title. 

Each participating team will play 12 games during the seven-day round-robin portion, followed by a playoff round featuring the top six teams. From there, the teams will be pared down to a medal round for the final four. The crowning of the new world champions will take place on Sunday, April 8.
