The 2014 Ford Men’s World Championships in Beijing is only a day away from starting. Draw times are pretty standard with games starting at 9:00 AM, 2:00 PM and 7:00 PM. The hard part for Saskatchewan curling fans, half a world away and wanting to keep an eye on home grown Pat Simmons on Team Canada, is to know what that means for setting alarms or staying up late to cheer on Team Canada.
Right now in Beijing it is 11:17 PM Friday evening while it is 9:17 AM here in Saskatchewan on Friday morning. That’s a fourteen hour difference.
According to timeanddate.com here are the time translations:
- Sunday at 9:00 AM in Beijing that means 7:00 PM here in SK.
- Sunday at 2:00 PM in Beijing means Midnight in SK
- Sunday at 7:00 PM in Beijing means Sunday at 5:00 AM in SK
The other simpler way is to check the TSN broadcast schedule! It’s listed in Eastern time so you only have to subtract 2 hours from the time.
Canada opens play in Round 2 against Denmark at 5:00 AM SK time Saturday morning and is shown playing China Sunday morning at 5:00 AM SK time. Click here for the entire World Men’s Curling Schedule found on the World Curling site.
