2024 World Men’s Curling Championship standings

There are 13 teams that make up the field at the 2024 World Men’s Curling Championship. 

In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the World Curling Federation removed all Russian Curling federation teams from competing at the World Championships. That ban remains in place in 2024. 

Each team plays every one of the other participants, resulting in 12 matches in round-robin play. After the round-robin concludes, the top six teams advance to the playoffs. 

The top two seeds receive a bye to the semifinals, with the No. 3-6 teams participating in the qualification games. The winners of those two matches will advance to the semifinals and the winner of the two semifinal matches play in the gold medal game. The losers of the semifinals play for the bronze.
