Homan earns spot for KIOTI Tractor Champions Cup

Team Homan’s title victory in the HearingLife Tour Challenge also qualified them for the season-ending KIOTI Tractor Champions Cup, running May 2-7, 2023 at the Co-Operators Centre in Regina.

Unlike the five other Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling tournaments that rely upon ranking points, the KIOTI Tractor Champions Cup requires teams to capture a title in order to get in.

Homan’s club from Ottawa defeated Team Einarson of Gimli, Man., 8-4 in the HearingLife Tour Challenge women’s final on Oct. 23 at the Coca-Cola Centre in Grande Prairie, Alta.

Reigning Princess Auto Players’ Championship winners Team Mouat and Team Hasselborg plus defending KIOTI Tractor Champions Cup champs Team Gushue and Team Einarson have already booked their spots, who will be next?

Follow along with the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling season to see who will qualify.
