The World Games now with Floorball


Ok the World games is a global multi-sport event - that kinda acts like a sorta feeder circuit to the big world Multi-Games -- a.k.a. the Olympics.

The next World Games will take place in Poland 2017 - and their website has just been released - with Floorball included.

We quote the IFF:

"Over 30 sports, over 4000 athletes from over 100 countries will participate in the World Games in Wroclaw, floorball being one of the sports on the program.

Floorball will be one of the ball sports in the WG 2017. The other ball sports are canoe polo, fistball, beach handball, korfball, lacrosse and squash."

In other words it is like the SEA Games in South East Asia -no not with that strong geographic focus - as they have in the SEA games - but oh heck yes Floorball is part of the SEA Games too...

Whats more - as we see this from American eyes - Birmingham Alabama wants to host the World Games in 2021 - if so Americans for sure will be able to see real Floorball up close at least in 2021.

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!
