Men’s and women’s USPORTS wrestling championships coming to U of G in 2024

It was almost 25 years ago that the University of Guelph hosted the first ever Canadian women’s wrestling championship.

It was announced on Wednesday that the U of G will again host the women’s along with the men’s national wrestling championships.

It will be the sixth time that the university will host the men’s championship. The last time it happened was in 1999, the same year as the inaugural women’s event, which was also the last time the university hosted it.

The University of Guelph also hosted the first ever men’s wrestling championship in 1973.

In a news release, U SPORTS chief sport officer Lisette Johnson-Stapley says the university has a long and storied history of wrestling and are excited to be returning to their roots.

The university’s director of athletics Scott McRoberts says they are thrilled to be welcoming the country’s best wrestlers to their facility.
