Politics part 2 - Physical Proximity


So the race for the Olympics heats up - with many contenders right.
Some things we should probably not discuss here cause we do not have the mandate to do so....? Oh no - the world is free and the word too - so let's get to work... ;-D

In our opinion the physical location is utterly important for the IFF. We know they have a great deal in Finland with very - let's say reasonable costs for their office rent. That is good.
But if Floorball want to get into the Olympics as soon as possible - we imagine that it would be extremely beneficial if IFF relocated their head office to Lausanne in Switzerland. Why? Because we think physical proximity could be utterly important in the battle to move the sport forward. Then we know that developments outside of Europe is utterly important for the larger cause too. So the next reasonable development is probably to have micro offices or some other sort of representation - that goes beyond just individual representatives...
Yes it is not cheap to stay on top. But the question is if not the IFF should have an Asian office too - maybe in Singapore... and then down the road plan for maybe an office in Canada too that will cater to the Americas. Yes the second development probably need some 3-4 more North and South American countries on board first? And we have not even discussed the idea with a European Floorball Federation... since we think that comes down the road.
Crazy? Yes if you compare to what we have today. But Crazy for the future - most likely not. How to finance? We still think that with many more licensed tools/products for Floorball like, shoes, floors, jerseys, pants, jackets and socks.... ok u take it from here...
Fantasy? Maybe...

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!
