Hockey and the size of events

Ok, now it is more or less hours until the World Youth Hockey Championship starts in southern Sweden. If we can understand media right (Swedish media) - the Swedish team is seen as a hot contender with a fairly strong team. We ourselves would like to add the benefits of being on home ice on top of that.. But this post is about something else.
The organizer of the 2014 World Youth Ice Hockey Championships describe the tournament with roughly the following words. "This tournament is one of this years largest winter sport events in Sweden".
Of course there are many ways to measure size - and how U measure the largest is the question that answers that question.
We here however notice the wording. It is in the wintersport group they claim to be one the the largest events.

As the organiser of the 2014 World Floorball Championships describe their event coming up in December 2014. The say; "this is the largest sporting event in Sweden".
Yet again - we say the size depend a bit on how you measure the size. But we can assure U one thing here -"We love the boldness of this statement - and U know what - this statement portray in a rather good way - the size of Floorball in Europe.

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!
