WFG Masters Format and Qualification

Format: The 2023 Masters features 16 men’s and 16 women’s teams.

Both divisions are split into four pools of four teams for round-robin play. The top eight teams overall qualify for the playoffs. If necessary, tiebreaker games will be played to determine the final playoff spots.

Qualification: The top 16 men’s and top 16 women’s teams based on the World Curling Federation’s World Ranking system will be invited to participate. If a team in the top 16 declines their invitation the next team on the WCF rankings will be invited until the field is complete. The Grand Slam of Curling reserves the right to implement a sponsor’s exemption in both the men’s and women’s event in which one spot could be filled at their discretion.

Qualification Date: Monday, November 13, 2023
