Pending contract signature the European Curling Federation also announced that the European Mixed Curling Championships 2011 and the C-group of the European Curling Championships 2011 will be hosted by Tarnby, Denmark and that the 2012 edition of the European Curling Championships will be hosted by the city of Karlstad, Sweden, 300 kms west of Stockholm.
During the meeting three National Curling Associations were accepted as new ECF members: Armenia, Romania and Slovenia. This raises the number of ECF member nations to 37.
