The largest American Floorball news ever? - And the plan?

In less than 12 hours - it will probably be announced that the IOC IWGA has awarded Birmingham Alabama the World Games in 2021. (sorry a typo)

Here is the live count down - that we proudly can embed via the world games:
Start the video and You will see how long time is left...

Floorball is a new sport to be played on this important multi-sport event. These games involve many thousands of Athletes in a loadful of diciplines.

So what happens with Floorball now? In the case Alabama wins the World Game ?

In 2017 Floorball will for the first time ever be participating in the World Games in Poland. This is nothing we are concerned or worried about - because in that part of the World Floorball is well developed and runs strong among kids and most folks. So we dare to count the participation 2017 for Floorball in the World Games as a cake walk - and doubtless - we want to ensure you it will become a terrific success.

It is the next step that makes our collar shiver a bit.
How many with the UOC (US Olympic Committee) knows what Floorball is - for instance? Or how many of them have ever played it?
Or how can we in 6 years time - only - build Floorball strong enough in America to shine in Birmingham Alabama 2021?
Canada, with their Hockey support can most likely be halfway ready as well as Jamaica as it comes to a reasonable penetration in their societies... 2021 - But the USA?

Floorball must move the sport from the shoulders of local disoriented expats (like us here) - into the hands of all main American schools/universities at the blink of an eye. Oh my!

The only way to do this fast is through forceful political and diplomatic ties at the very highest level. Guys and gals - Floorballcentral talks about an invasion - like a military operation - and not a Sunday afternoon picnic..
Or maybe a re-invasion? Since Cosom in MNPLS invented the foundation for the sport?

Why is this important? Well if Floorball flunks badly with no interest at the games in Alabama (yes in 2021 every little aspect of the games will be measured in digital tiny details or bits) - then - it would not be surprising if the big International Floorball stunt on the nice The World Games stage ends after two stops only.
Something that is fully unacceptable.

So buckle up for a wild western style ride ahead! All of you - the time for change has arrived. Thank You Birmingham Alabama, the World Games, and Floorball.

But - We need a plan - that goes beyond most other plans we have ever seen in the Floorball world!

OK, what is left if Peru or Russia gets the games? For Floorball as much as before. For Floorball in the USA not as much more than the more blurry Summer Olympic dream.

So in hours, and with this announcement - it is extremely important for Floorball in the USA - but also for some 55 Million school kids in America - we hope.

As in most sports - Let the best win ;-D

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!
