Slovakia was the big surprise, when the Woman team qualified for the upcoming World Championship. Well done to a young team, who was ranked 4 of the 6 nations participating.
Only a close 2-4 defeat against homefavourite Latvia, was the only loss.
But whats the story behind the fast and technichal floorball team from Slovakia. I asked one of their players, Lucia Kosturiakova, who is playing center. The 22 yaers old is skilled, and in the last 3 attempts to qualify to the World Championship she have made 37 point (13+24) (more…)

IFF have their own World Ranking, based on each nations placement at the World Championship.
I thought it could be interessting to see, how the WR would look like, if you give points to each nation, depending if they are winnging or loosing. It also shows the difference between the nations.
Mens World ranking
Women World ranking
At the World ranking men, you can see how points are calculated

The headline is not correct, it could have been, how to make talent development, or why Swedish floorball is doing something brand new, regarding their way to organize youth in floorball.
The Swedish floorball federation presented their thoughts at an international conference, abouth the good sport for kids, and their new strategy/philosophy to development of floorball.
They were inspired by a guru in this area, the Hungarian born Canadian Istvan Balyi, whose Theory, many are inspired of.
But what is it, Balyi have inspired Swedish floorball to do. And why should the most winning and biggest floorball country change anything.? (more…)

30-0, 23-0, 15-1 and 19-0
The Swedish champions have proved daunting strength at the World Championships floorball. Iin their first two group matches against USA (30-0) and Japan (23-0). One of the founders of floorball, Andras Czitrom raised the question, should we return to the old system of A and B division with 10 teams. In order not to experience the this heavy results. (You can go to the wall of AC, and read the whole discussion). (more…)

Today starts the WFC in foorball, where the top 16 nations in the world will compete for World Championship medals. But there is not only medals at stake, or rather the medals are only to be sorted out between 4 nations, the others must fight for the secondary positions, and then see if they have come closer to the top 4
The big four
The 4 major nations in floorball are Sweden, Finland, Switzerland and Czech Republic. The 4 nations have at the previous 7 World Championships, snatched a total of 19 of total 21 medals! Norway has been the one to break the dominance with 2 bronze medals in 2001 and 1997. (more…)

Floorball in Germany do not have the greatest reputation in their own country, or internationally. But the Germans are coming, and after this weekend’s matches against Denmark who gave a victory to each, it seems however that Denmark is still a step or two ahead of Germany. The defeat to Germany, was more a consequence of German efficiency in a 5 min penalty to Denmark, who turned a Danish lead, to a German victory.
Germany has gone past Denmark in the number of players and floorball has begun to diversify away from the old East Germany. But the sport is still significantly less than in Denmark, this can be seen by comparing the number of players relative to their population. If the Germans had the same share as in Denmark, the picture would look different. That would mean 80,000 Germans would play floorball! (more…)
