Team Bottcher is made up of the world, national and Olympic champions Ben Hebert, Marc Kennedy, Brett Gallant and Brendan Bottcher. As the group sets its sights on the upcoming Olympic quadrennial, PointsBet Canada CCO Nic Sulsky said it was a “no-brainer” to partner with such a star-studded team.

Team Bottcher Skip Brendan Bottcher said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with PointsBet Canada. Having a world-class operator like PointsBet Canada on our team will not only help us in our pursuit of championships but also help us connect in innovative ways with our nation’s curling fans.”

The agreement will see PointsBet Canada become the official Team Bottcher sports betting partner, as the company works to forge partnerships with a range of Canadian sports teams and organisations, after obtaining an Ontario sportsbook licence in February 2022.

PointsBet Canada CEO Scott Vanderwel said: “As one of the few locally based Canadian companies, we know how important it is for our industry to not only engage fans but grow grassroots participants.

“We are excited about our long-term partnership with Curling Canada and Team Bottcher as it will help us to continue our pursuit of growing the game of curling.”

PointsBet Canada agreed to a multi-year deal with golf club owner and operator ClubLink in June 2022, through which PointsBet Canada became ClubLink’s official sports betting partner.
