"We are delighted to have New Holland on board with the BKT Tires and OK Tires World Men's Curling Championship 2021," said WCF President Kate Caithness.

"They have been a supporter of curling in Canada for a number of years and we are grateful that they have chosen to increase their support to include the world men's championship in such an important season."

New Holland is a global company in agriculture machinery.

"New Holland is excited to be back in the rink," said Brett Davis, President for New Holland Agriculture North America.

"We look forward to another exciting year of competition and we'll be wishing all the teams the very best of luck in Calgary."

The 2021 Championship was scheduled to be held in Ottawa before being moved to Calgary as part of a hub, centralising Curling Canada's events for the season due to the threat of COVID-19.
