The Battle of Alberta is legendary to sports fans across the province. Oilers versus Flames. Stampeders versus Eskimos. Bottcher versus Koe will headline the battle in Canada’s favorite winter sport in just a few hours.
It has been an action-packed week at the 2021 Tim Hortons Brier presented by AGI, filled with epic wins, underdogs with big moments, and vintage performances by returning champions. The displays of incredible feats, comradery, and laughter made fans feel they were right there in the stands alongside them. Despite the amount of talent within the curling bubble, only the top eight teams advance to the championship round.
Among this curling elite, Team Alberta’s Brendan Bottcher from the Saville Community Sport Centre, is aiming to go the distance to win at Canadian Men’s Championship for the first time. At the same time, Wildcard Team Kevin Koe out of the Glencoe Club in Calgary, is chasing after a fifth Brier win. Whether you are for Edmonton’s Team Bottcher or Calgary’s Team Koe, we are going to be treated to a battle of Alberta for the record books. Who will come out on top?
