Scalability? Is that English?


Floorball often pounds its chest over the awesome flexibility or the scalability the sport offers. You can more and less take a gym or another set up and play full size games with 5+1 players on each side and 3 formations or something. Then you can also scale the game down to 3 on 3 with small nets on a small area - yop we have even tried 3 on 2 with rotating players...
And all this flexibility is good.

But let us spin this the other way around... Why not scale it up? Take a huge indoor soccer arena and play 11 vs 11 players? Or move out on a big newly built airstrip and play 50 players against 50 others?

Why would anyone do such a stupid thing? Ha true from the sporting perspective there would most likely not be any huge benefits - if any at all.
But from the marketing ability the ambition to think big could be worth a lot. And if someone would set a world floorball record not in the longest game played - but maybe be Biggest team sport game ever played...
The returns in publicity could be exactly what Floorball needs?

Think big and not inside the box please!

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!
