World Curling Federation
The World Curling Federation is the world governing body of the Olympic Winter Sport of Curling and the Paralympic Winter Sport of Wheelchair Curling. Originally founded in 1966 as the International Curling Federation, the ICF changed its name to the World Curling Federation in 1991.
Today, the WCF is managed by an Executive Board of seven, each from a different country and elected by WCF Member Associations. A permanent staff of thirteen employees is based out of the WCF Secretariat in Perth, Scotland.
Curling is generally acknowledged to be one of the fastest-growing international winter sports. The WCF currently has 49 Member Associations.
