UFA supports Team Koe for Fifth Season

< Back

Join UFA in cheering them on at the 2019 season kick off in Shanghai!

Curling is part of the fabric of Alberta because it brings us together - no matter how cold it is! We’re excited to announce that UFA will huddle around Team Koe once again.

UFA has pledged continue our sponsorship of the elite Canadian men’s curling outfit – Team Kevin Koe. The new four year partnership kicks off with enhanced engagement planned around the new team.

We are behind Team Koe all the way to the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, China. Did we mention we’ll also be on their chests? Checkout their broadcast schedule below, and look for the UFA logo on Team Koe’s competition jerseys!

“We’re proud to have UFA on board – so many curling fans are hardworking farmers and UFA members,” says Skip Kevin Koe. “We know our fans are the ones who make sure we all have safe, healthy, affordable food to eat – we wouldn’t be here without them and we’re excited represent them with the UFA logo on our chests every time we play. We loved being able to participate in Farmer’s Day – and we’re looking forward to more fun with UFA members in the winter of 2019.”

In 2018, the team said good bye to long-time members Marc Kennedy and Brent Laing and welcomed two strong new players. BJ Neufeld and Colton Flasch joined Team Koe and took part in UFA’s successful Farmer’s Day celebrations at the High River Farm and Ranch Supply store.

Join UFA in cheering on Team Koe throughout the 2019 season! Most events will be covered on TSN and Sportsnet, a full Team Koe schedule is below. Follow @TeamKevinKoe on Twitter and Facebook for live updates on the team. We look forward to partnering for another successful season. Follow us at @ufacooperative for more fun and opportunities to engage with Team Koe!
