The Good and Less Good - it's all about Dynamics & Life is Good


As we were out in Tomah yesterday to try to bring in some local sponsorships, gifts, coupons, support or whatever - anything - to present to our players for the 2014 Midwest Floorball Championship... Well, let's be honest, the overall response from the local community was not strongly overwhelming (at least not yet) and we must continue to try to do this. As it looks like right now we are way behind on this part compared to previous years and any donations for the players going to Tomah would not hurt... ;-)
So that is the bad.

Then as we toss up the good news on twitter that they have sold tickets like crazy for the 2014 WFC in Sweden - this is a news story that does not even exist in English yet - it just came as a tiny tweet yesterday. And the IFF has also only shared a tweet on this so far - 5 hrs ago today...
Over 20 000 World Floorball Championships tickets were sold within 5 days! Get your WFC ticket now:...

But the good thing is that the Sport Minister of Canada did retweet this our own tweet in this matter to his own followers.
And that is exactly what made our day shine. It feels good that a very important pair of eyes have focus on Floorball as a new sport..

On the news themselves...
The organizer in Gothenburg Sweden has sold 20.000 ticket to the 2014 WFC in five days. This means they are on track to the new record of 200.000 spectators for the full event. This will shatter all previous records. The backside of this good news is - if you want tickets - well it might be at bit late for the last games if you want em' now. Yesterday they only had 3000 some tickets left to the last round of games.
We have earlier in one post on this blog scratched our heads about the choice of Scandinavium for the finals since we think that this big Ice Hockey venue in Gothenburg (Frölunda home Ice) can just host some maximum 12.000 spectators per game (depending a bit how they arrange the layout). We suspected the arena Scandinavium might be on the smaller side as they now aim to arrange Scandinavias largest sporting event in 2014. 

On the subject of Silly season rumors for the 2014 Midwest Floorball Championship, it is possible that we might have an international European player from one of the better countries joining.. 
Let's see...
Yepp it's all floorball dynamics baby!

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!
