Switzerland - Alpine News and the Super Bowl Final

German or Google translated texts are tricky...

But the big news tonight is that Switzerland just decided to go for a Super-Final in Floorball too - that means away with the last seven games - for just one big final - for both Males and Females at the same time.
If we grasped this right the decision came at an extraordinary meeting - after thousands of people voted online for this in Switzerland. The Internet is powerful my dear friends...
The Swiss national TV Broadcasters is said to be very very interested about this.

This concept of a Super Final has proven successful in Sweden - but this spring in the Czech Republic too - where their own Super-Final just pulverized all previous audience records and... yeah the Czech Floorball Super Final had a larger audience as they had in Sweden.

It seems like Germany is perhaps moving in that direction too - even if Floorball is yet to make the larger impact on the same market.

Mmm, then of course we think about the Super Bowl here in the US and wonder why NHL/The Stanley Cup is not doing this too... A Super Stanley Cup?
Speaking about hockey, this sweet picture from Finland shows a hockey helmet, but out of love for Floorball = this player put a Floorball sticker on the hockey helmet... Just Sayin'.

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!
