The History of Canada Cup (floorball)


Here is a little piece of the history:


"In 2010, the Canada Cup welcomed its first European youth team, the Skogsäng Cobras from Sweden, and in 2011 we were honoured to have Toronto Maple Leafs’ legend Börje Salming on hand as a special guest at the opening ceremonies.
 
In 2012, the tournament welcomed a record 62 teams and more than 800 players of all ages competing in eight divisions. It marked the first year of ticket sales with over 450 spectators paying admission. The tournament was won for the second time by the Toronto Vikings, who narrowly edged 2011 champs Hamilton Public Enemies 7-6 in the final. The Vikings roster was noteworthy as it featured Rasmus Sundstedt and Mattias Samuelsson who went on to win the World Floorball Championship with Team Sweden later in the year while Hamilton played with a completely Canadian squad."

This spring this tourney will be played at the former Maple Leafs Gardens - where a prominent Hockey team won the Stanley Cup, like 11 times...

Caution

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!
