Breaking news? Updated - twice

Yesterday we caught a post on Facebook that indicated that Canada wanted to bid for the WFC that we tossed up on our own facebook page.
This post was re-posted by the worlds largest Floorball community on facebook minutes later (they have almost 70.000 likes).

Today this news article jumps up in Canadian press http://www.quintenews.com/2012/08/belleville-wants-to-host-world-championship/33420/

This is what we think:
In principle there are three things Belleville must offer:
TV - and that may not be a local cable guy but main Canadian TV
Spectators - and most likely paying spectators
Sponsors - a few others beside of the common Floorball related guys and gals
If Belleville have this in their bid - yes they might get a U19 WFC tournament.

What is happening next?
Well if I was a young gun born 97 or later, kind of and if I knew some hockey either from Ice or from the wooden club game... Or if I did Ball Hockey or something similar. Then irrespective of I lived in any province in Canada, in any State in the USA, in South America or in the Caribbean..
Heck, you will never in life have a better opportunity ever to play in a World Championship for you country.
The trick is to do 10.000 hours of Floorball until 2016 - i.e. roughly 50 hours a week - rather though if there hardly is a club around where you live.
But if you may only get some 10 hours per week in you are most likely well ahead all the others....
You can do it! This is right now a much less competitive environment - but this will change utterly fast...
This opportunity is only open now.

We have further have clarified that the WFC they apply for is the girls U19, so Hockey girls get ready if you want to represent your country in Floorball ;-)

We also hope to possibly have a deeper coverage after the weekend..

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!
