Field finalized for KIOTI Tractor Champions Cup in Regina

The clash of champions is set for the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling season finale in Regina.

The KIOTI Tractor Champions Cup caps our 2022-23 campaign, May 2-7, at the Co-operators Centre featuring 12 men’s teams and 12 women’s teams that have won a top tour title in order to qualify.

Team Gushue and Team Einarson headline the field as they look to defend their championships at the event. Gushue topped Team Koe and Einarson beat Team Gim during last year’s finals in Okotoks, Alberta.

Regina fans can make some noise for the home team as Team Knapp, who won the SCT Players Championship, will hit the ice in the men’s division.
