The IFF explains the new WFC system



* What are the aims with changing the WFC Final Round playing system?
- The aim with the new playing system is to have more even and important matches played during the WFC group stage. We want more even and interesting matches for the spectators! In addition the matches would have a higher importance for the teams playing when more teams can make it to the first play-off round.
- Increasing the competitiveness and interest of the WFC group matches is one of the biggest pros. We have received feedback from within and from outside the floorball world that we should do something about the uneven WFC matches. With the new playing system we believe that we will see tighter group matches. In the same time it is also important to strive towards making floorball a global sport with countries from outside Europe participating in the IFF Events.

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!
