LGT and curling

LGT supports the European as well as the World Curling Championships as title and main sponsor.

Chess on ice

LGT supports the European as well as the World Curling Championships as title and main sponsor.

Skill rather than strength, precision rather than speed. Curling attaches utmost importance to fairness and tactics - it is not for nothing that this complex sport is also called "chess on ice".

However, at first sight, the game that is extremely popular in Canada, Scotland, Scandinavia and Switzerland reminds one rather of boules or boccia. The players try to place their stones as close as possible to a circular center. The name originates from the Scottish "tae curl", which became the English "to curl" and describes the stones' movements when skimming over the ice.

Sponsors of eight years

This team sport belongs to the oldest in the world and has managed to preserve its original character despite today's increasingly competitive sports business. Its long history together with the demanded skills such as precision, concentration and strategic thinking connect curling to the long-term values and the high quality standards of LGT. For these reasons, we have been supporting curling for eight years and are title as well as main sponsor of the European and World Curling Championships.

Eight male and seven female teams will take part in the European Curling Championships at Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia. More than ten national teams will compete at the World Championships for women in Silkeborg, Denmark.

LGT is truly proud to be sponsoring this fascinating and complex sport.
