With a coveted berth in the 2025 Olympic Team Trials at stake, the men and women curling championships take the ice at American Dream Meadowlands in East Rutherford starting Monday, Jan. 29 and continuing until Sunday, Feb. 4.
This is the highest level of curling competition to be hosted in the New York City area, according to USA Curling. An NHL regulation size ice rink, The Rink at American Dream offers fans three levels of viewing options:
- Premium — located on the second floor Mezzanine, with exclusive bar access with a selection of drinks available for purchase.
- Ice Level — the closest to the action
- Upper Level Standing — the highest vantage point and the most affordable ticket option
“It is exciting to see how the team at USA Curling is creating a world-class event for our athletes—and making it happen in such a unique location,” said Dean Gemmell, CEO of USA Curling.
“The Rink and the mall setting offers us a great opportunity to reach more casual fans, while being in the country’s largest media market provides terrific exposure for our elite players,” Gemmell added.
Gold Medalists and Other Olympians Will Compete
Fans at The Rink will witness top-notch competition with 11 Olympians slated to compete, including the 2018 Olympic gold medalists.
Numerous past national champions will also be on the ice. And a player who once chased down quarterbacks at adjacent MetLife Stadium will be there. Jared Allen, former All-Pro who turned his athletic focus to curling after retiring from the NFL, is a member of Team Ruohenen.
