Floorball in Tokyo 2020?
Today an application was sent in by the IFF and this is what the IFF President conclude:

"- I’m really pleased with the message we have been able to convey to the Tokyo 2020 decision makers in the application and I believe it will also show the Japanese organiser and the IOC community that Floorball is the sport of the future. Regardless if we will in the end make it for the Tokyo Olympic Games, the application will help us gather important information and experiences for the coming challenges related to further Olympic application process. The application process and our application will bring our positions forward in the Olympic movement for the coming events, IFF President Mr. Tomas Eriksson comments."

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!
