The model for the games would be with 8 teams, men and women.

IOC has opened up the modernization of the Games, and this means that changes in the composition of the sports, that are on the program.

That is not necessarily a sport falls out completely, but there are fewer competitions in each discipline. That alone would be an outcry for those who will be affected.


The number of people who can participate in a summer Olympics … This will be first obstacle for floorball.

16 teams with 20 players and five leaders … it’s 400 to be cut elsewhere! It is a very large number. IFF has been playing with a model called 4V4 as an Olympic discipline it would help in reducing the numbers!

Everyone thinks they are going.

When I look at the list of SPORTS, who would like to be part of the Olympic Games, then the list is interminable and each have their reasons, for just their sport would be a perfect match.

IOC looks at a variety of criteria, including exposure, played among the youth, it is a clean sport and a global sport. In total there are more than 30 criteria.

Floorball score positively to several of them, but the exposure and the global dissemination … the sport needs to score better.

Nexr Floorball need to grow globally and get the youth to play…
