Sometimes we are brave...

And we just steal a post poff straight off without asking too much..
This is such a time.
The following material is stolen, or we can pretend it is linked in, or maybe a quote? Ok we fixed the text with minor edits.. But.
Anyway this is so good that we must re-post it - this time from Floorball to the Olympics (FTTO).
Why? Because if you are about to build a new sport venue in America and you want to be able to take care of the fastest growing indoor team sport in the world - on track to the Olympics. You should know the following before you spend millions and millions of dollars on your building.

Does this not mean that Floorball is rather expensive? No, you may also scale it down - but that will hurt the teams that are not able to play on full courts - and you know what - with the right International measurements, we can have many more people active at the same time - and more active people save you money in principle on the medical bill - then you can play Team handball too - so no it is not more expensive.. No this is not about money this is about love for the next generation - ask they know.

Floorball and 46X26m.

The Swedish Floorball Federation - SIBF - did for several years ago create a group called 40X20m.

The group is to advise the various municipalities - and to assist them with any new sport halls where floorball is meant to be used.

FTTO think it is an excellent initiative and we can recommend other floorball federations also to do the same.

But , FTTO wants to change the name of this kind of group to 46X26m.
- Plan size 40X20m shall remain.

Each meter is expensive in terms of buildings.

But the number of accidents that have occurred over the years because the Rinks is too close to the wall is our reason.

46X26m is a good investment for the future as new halls possibly will be built.

We know that these are astronomical targets, but it should be the ultimate and safest goal to reach - for floorball.

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!
