When we decide - or You?


Unihoc just tossed up a great initiative. They will start a Floorball charity and we may all vote at their facebook page or at IFF's facebook page - this is wonderful! And efforts will be made.
Here is the Unihoc home page http://www.unihoc.se/


OK, what would we like to see from the countries you can vote on?

A) We think it is better if the country picked is an English speaking country since that might create better impact online and on social media - so sorry smaller online languages like Greek and Romanian might be tricky for us here to support.

B) Then we like countries with some connecting sports and Ice hockey and Field Hockey ought to be connecting sports... maybe Soccer connects a little bit too.. but no we do not see a clear choice from this perspective. Brasil and Portugal are interesting and Portugal play some sort of inline roller hockey that is big..

C) High online penetration is also good and here Korea has a good position, yup Malaysia too.

D) Jamaica stands out as they quick can bring other countries on-board in that area and they do speak English - but is the infrastructure in place in terms of venues to play on?

E) The other good thing with a small country is that whatever Unihoc will do the comparative impact will be better on a smaller market, Hmm China and Brasil seems very large then...

F) This is a tricky choice. Our vote goes to Ireland since they do speak English and since their special Olympics Floorball activity stood out very good earlier this year..

G) We miss USA on this list, since it is the largest single Ice Hockey market in the world and USA also has a reputation of being a trendsetter and - well we at least try to speak English and Spanish in the US.. Maybe the US is just a too big of a market?

H) Make your own pick here - https://www.facebook.com/UnihocFloorball?fref=ts - but please think a bit what you vote on before you just let your feelings take you away. What is best for Floorball?

N.B. Only a few days to vote so pls vote already now.

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!
