Two new ticket mini-packs for Canadian curling’s Olympic trial went on sale on Monday, as the tournament creeps closer.
Both new mini-packs to the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, which runs from Dec. 1 to 8 at MTS Centre, will sell for $229. The first, called The Flex, is an eight-game mini-pack that allows fans to choose which games to attend, with the caveat that a maximum of two seats can be used for the gold medal match. The other package, called The Champ, gives same-seat tickets to the final seven draws, including the men’s and women’s gold-medal matches.
Fans can still buy a full-event ticket package, including tickets for all 18 draws, for $429, and will be able to buy single-draw tickets as a walk-up.
Among the 16 teams competing for the honour of representing Canada at the Sochi Olympics are four Manitoban rinks: Team Jennifer Jones, Team Chelsea Carey, Team Jeff Stoughton and Team Mike McEwen.
