Winner will have an honourary donation made in their name for youth curling philanthropic programs

Earlier this week, PointsBet Canada announced its Sweep 16 Bracket Challenge, which will award a $1-million prize to any fan who can predict a perfect men’s and women’s bracket at the 2022 PointsBet Invitational.

The free-to-play challenge allows curling fans a chance to put their knowledge to the test in an attempt to win the grand prize, along with various other prizes from PointsBet Canada.

PointsBet Canada is pleased to extend this offer to Canada’s media for a special competition in support of Curling Canada’s philanthropic youth programs.

PointsBet Canada will make an honourary $1,000 donation in the name of the Sweep 16 media challenge winner to For the Love of Curling, Curling Canada’s philanthropic program. As per CRA regulations, the winner cannot receive a charitable tax receipt for income tax purposes.

The challenge provides media with a fun way to engage curling fans across Canada by sharing their progress on their brackets in their reporting and social media, while also helping to raise money for the future generations of curling.

The Sweep 16 Bracket Challenge is now open and will close on Sept. 21st, at 12:00 PM ET. It is only open to residents of all provinces of Canada, excluding Quebec, who are 19 years of age or older at the time of entry.

The media bracket challenge supports Curling Canada’s For the Love of Curling philanthropic programs, which give back to youth and encourages them to create a lifelong relationship with curling built on the foundations of health, leadership and social connections. The program supports the development of youth through initiatives such as: Egg Farmers Rocks & Rings school programming, youth learn-to-curl programs, inter-league and Hit, Draw, Tap competitions, youth national championship and curling scholarships.

The 2022 PointsBet Invitational kicks off at Willie O’Ree Place in Fredericton on Sept. 21. It features many of the best teams in Canada – along with some of Canada’s up-and-coming young teams and grassroots club competitors – vying for a purse in excess of $350,000 in a single-elimination tournament. In a sport that traditionally follows round-robin and double- or triple-knockout formats, fans can expect the unexpected when it comes to a new-to-curling format at the PointsBet Invitational.
