LONDON, Ont. — The Continental Cup of Curling will return to London, Ont., in 2020.
Curling's Ryder Cup pitting a team of North American curlers against an international side will be played Jan. 9-12 at The Sport Centre at the Western Fair District.
With 60 points available, the first team to reach 30.5 earns the title and $84,500 from a total prize purse of $130,000.
The four-day event was last played in London in 2018, when North America's Brad Gushue broke a 30-30 deadlock by beating Team World's Thomas Ulsrud in a draw to the button.
The Continental Cup has been held in cities across Canada, but also in Las Vegas four years out of 15.
Team World narrowly won the 2019 Continental Cup in Vegas, edging North America 36-26 to end a six-year drought.
The Continental Cup includes traditional team, mixed doubles and skins games, and introduced a new "mixed scramble" this year in Vegas where skips played with an unfamiliar third and front-end player.
Each side carries six teams.
The Kevin Koe and Chelsea Carey teams from Calgary earned berths on North America's team by winning this year's Canadian men's and women's championships respectively.
Other teams will be named at a later date.
