|Internet casino Slotland.com is pleased to announce their title sponsorship of Team Geurts, a competitive curling foursome playing on the Ontario Curling Tour. Slotland.com’s sponsorship of Team Geurts will fund their 2004/05 season, and make possible their entry onto the World Curling Tour.|
Slotland.com is a leading online casino, and the first casino in the world to sponsor Canadian Curling. “We have a history of fulfilling dreams. Team Geurts has a dream to make it to the Winter Olympics, and we want to help them achieve that dream,” said a spokesperson of Slotland.com
The partnership of Slotland.com and curling is hoped to introduce online casinos to an audience familiar with leisure gaming. It is also designed to give additional funding to developing the sport of curling.
Team Geurts are looking for a bid in the 2010 winter games in Vancouver, BC. However, there is a chance that the team will be ready in time for the 2006 Winter Games in Turin, Italy.
'We appreciate the funding and hope to use it to enter top-tier events throughout Ontario,' said Team Skip Gerry Geurts, 25, of London, Ontario. 'Playing against top teams is essential to team development.'
