1.6 % is not good enough!


The IFF recently reported the growth on Floorball. Here is their full post http://www.floorball.org/news.asp?kieli=826&tyyppi=&id_tiedote=3763&offset=0.
In summary the growth of licensed players, last year were 1.6 % and the number of clubs 1 %. Some countries are doing better and others not - and it sounds like some does not even report..

Ok as we look at our own twitter growth - well to be fully honest and not to be too exact we think we chime in at roughly the same growth rate - with one main difference. We grow perhaps about one percent and sometimes more - not per year - but per day.

Floorball is a fully awesome product. And if it was not a fully awesome product - you know.. it would not be impossible to make a good product a bit better either - and this product should grow and yes get into the Olympics too, right.
But who's task is it do that? Madmen on the border of a digital tablet? Or the leaders in place on jobs to run and develop Floorball?
Well that question should not be raised...

But Floorballcentral think it is time to demand some results as it comes to the growth of this sport. Both at small federations, larger such as well as at the very top level. We do not like to play the game hangman.
However if things does not work as good as they could, or would, or should - it often creates a minor crisis and from... crisis... come what we love the most - CHANGE.

If Finland as a fairly mature Floorball market can show a growth of 5% then it seems like they are on a good path. And if they can do this - all other markets should be able to aim for the same. So all leaders that can not show the growth as they have in Finland... maybe you can do a bit better yourself or find someone that can help you out or replace you?
Floorballcentral is not happy about the growth reported by the IFF - it is in plain english not good enough -and somebodies must do a much better job.

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!
