Who is really best in the World?

As many think instinctively about Floorball the obvious answer would be the WFC Champs, right? Perhaps that is right.
The way I see things however is that Floorball is so much more than just a sport.
It is a new thing, a good thing, a thing many citizens in risk of becoming obese needs and Floorball has still a long way to go to reach the penetration it has in countries like Finland and Sweden etc..

So beside of the sport I think there is many more games to be fought and to be won for Floorball, like in a higher global penetration - in both media as well as in the minds of people - and in real life. To this I also would like to add that I say that the most important tool to spread knowledge, increase interest and share the joy of Floorball, today is perhaps the Internet.
In particular I think about videos made to advertise Floorball on the global Internet arena.
So who is best doing that?
My winner is by far the Czech Republic with at least three serious heavy contenders to short video productions all with the ability to go viral on the Internet.
One of these masterpieces was just posted in the previous post. This is another one I like: and of course this one all from the Czech Republic.

So Floorballcentral say that the Czech Republic is the current Champion in producing good marketing videos for Floorball on the Internet - by far!
My second selection is Finland, mainly related to the very good reel they made in relation to the WFC2010.
Sweden is third with mainly Salming producing nice advertising videos and some other and private older zorro stuff is interesting too from Sweden.
Switzerland, well I do not know. It does not make me think of anything in particular, and that goes for many other countries too...

So congrats and our full honors and respect to the Czech Republic and what their video producers do for Floorball and its global growth!

Now, what do You think?

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
