The 2014 world women's curling championship will be hosted by Saint John, N.B., the Canadian Curling Association announced Thursday.

The tournament will be held March 15-23, 2014. Saint John hosted the women's worlds on one previous occasion, in 1999.

"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. "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 women's world championship will be held in Riga, Latvia.
