Chess on ice

LGT is committed to the fascinating sport of curling

Tradition, precision and strategy

LGT has been sponsoring a range of curling competitions for many years now – this season, it is sponsoring the World Men’s Curling Championship in Scotland and the World Women’s Curling Championship in Switzerland.

LGT and curling

Skill instead of strength, accuracy instead of speed. Tactics, teamwork and fairness are very important in curling – this winter sport isn't called "chess on ice" for nothing – and has been gaining popularity for years.

Curling is one of the oldest team sports in the world. The sport is particularly popular in Canada, Scotland, Scandinavia and Switzerland. The aim of curling is to place your own stones closer to the three concentric circles – the so-called "house" – than the competition.

A fascinating sport

That's why curling requires skills such as precision, concentration, determination and strategic thinking in order to be successful. These values are also pivotal for long-term success in private banking.

LGT has been supporting various curling events around the world for ten years. Among others, LGT is the title and main sponsor of this year's LGT World Men’s Curling Championship in Glasgow as well as the LGT World Women's Curling Championship in Schaffhausen.
