The utterly most International Sport - expats Rule!


Face it - it is probably hard to prove but we think Floorball is the world's most International Sport.

First it is true some locals does not always like that a bunch of foreigners run around and almost dominate a new sport in Many countries. But if this would not be the case - well business would have been close to zero at some places.
What we see and encounter here is people from Sweden, Finland, a few from Switzerland and maybe a bit less from the Czech, but we see Singaporian, Polish and Latvian and Danish... you know what - they are all over. In Canada, USA, Brasil, Belgium, China, Thailand, Africa, Ukraine, France, Singapore, Bali ops we better stop otherwise this will turn into a big list.

Since Floorball is in a very expensive phase with organic growth much of all this is either initiated by expats or people with roots in two different countries. People that were born in one country and that work or otherwise live in another country.
And our thesis is that no other sport on this globe has a higher level of expats involved as a proportional measure. It could possibly be that Soccer has more - international exchange in absolut terms. But as in proportional terms we think not even soccer may compare as we use the proportions of expats involved in the sport of Floorball.

Of course this is almost impossible to prove.

So why should we care? Well if you do feel that International exchange and the melt or tossed sallad of International cultures is of benefit to the globe? Then maybe this should be celebrated?
So we do that here and now by saying Horray to all expats - you do an incredible job for Floorball Thanks to you all from Floorballcentral - we do recognize what you all do!

Then we are certain that this will not last forever as Floorball grows stronger and stands on its own national feet in more and more countries too.

But for now - sorry you nationals - expats rule!

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!
