Floorball needs a Statue - we have a challenge

We are not fully crazy - only a little. 

Floorballcentral only suggest that Floorball needs a statue. Soccer has many as well as many other sports.
Why does Floorball need a Statue?
Because Floorball is well worth a Statue and many kids - would love it.

And if we can make it to the Olympics = heck we can make a statue work too!

Who is first? And what in the world would this statue look like?

We do not know. But here are a few options.

Gothenburg should raise a statue over Mr Ahlquist and place it in a park so all Floorball Gothia Cup players can see it.
Linkoping should perhaps raise an iconic statue that depict that they have such an incredible youth participation.
Jyväskylä should raise a statue over Mika Kohonen or Enkoping should erect one on Mr. Czitrom.
Why not Minneapolis - imagine Phil Carlson as a statue.. Or why not a Connecticut statue in bronze that show a gigantic whiffle ball?
Na, maybe not USA.... not yet.

Do you have any better ideas? Well, share them.

Nope, to be honest we do not believe too much in old school ideas like a statue. But in the case of Floorball, it would be a serious good marketing tool since it would spur media attention - and I think most creative artist would love to work on such a task.

Hmm lets say this, it would be fun if someone, could do some fun digital renderings of imaginary Floorball statues in real photo-shopped pictures or just on the Internet in some crazy ways.
That is our challenge.

Who is first?

And then the next question is of course who is first in real life - it will become an attraction - and it will spur media interest for sure.. since it so out of the main track.

Remember Open Water Floorball is featured in the Washington Post - Not Floorball as a sport...

Imagine, a Floorball version of Mount Rushmore or the Statue of Liberty...I Chuckle here.

Yes, we are still dreaming away here... and this is crazy enough to be good - .

A sport for all and a sport for life - we just need a couple of Statues... to show the world that we are on track.

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!
