SAINT JOHN, N.B. -- The Ford world women's curling championship will return to Saint John in 2014.

The city last hosted the event in 1999, back when the men's and women's world championships were staged as a joint competition.

"The people of the city of Saint John and the province of New Brunswick put on a first-class show for all of the world in 1999," World Curling Federation president Kate Caithness said Thursday in a release.

"The World Curling Federation, Canadian Curling Association and our partner Ford of Canada expect to see a great crowd for this event given the momentum and interest that will be created around the Olympic Winter Games in Russia being held just a month before the world women's championship."

The 2013 world women's playdowns will be held March 16-24 in Riga, Latvia.
