The United States Curling Association is moving its headquarters to Minnesota.

USA Curling announced Friday that it plans to relocate its headquarters from Stevens Point, Wisconsin to the Viking Lakes campus in Eagan.

“The move to the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area opens the door for exciting new opportunities and increased exposure as interest continues to grow in the sport of curling,” said USA Curling CEO Jeff Plush in a statement.

The new headquarters will be located in the Innovation Center on the Viking Lakes campus, adjacent to the Minnesota Vikings headquarters and training facility.

The move will also put the organization and its athletes closer to its sports medicine partners and home workout facility, according to the release.

“Our headquarters will also now be uniquely positioned next to USA Curling’s Official Sports Medicine Provider Twin Cities Orthopedics on the Viking Lakes campus, giving us the capacity to further support our athletes,” Plush said. 

Minnesota is of course home to the majority of the 2018 Winter Olympics Gold Medal-winning men's curling team, with John Shuster, Tyler Geoge, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo all curling out of Duluth.
