The Svenska Superligan is going global. The Czech Pay TV station Nova Sport just added the strongest club competition on this planet to its broadcast.
To promote a sports competition efficiently, you need a strong online presence. Hidden in the dull structure of the Swedish federation website the Superligan was not even close to that. Now the presumably strongest league in the world launched its new web portal. And it’s more then disappointing.
AIK had just won its opener against Linköping, Falun lost its previous game 6:9 to Växjö. Then one these days came, when nothing works out. Or everything works out, depending on the perspective.
Alexander Nede did score some of the most spectacular zorro goals in floorball history. Anyways, this wonder goal seems to stand above all of them. Nede’s Helsingborg played Jönköping and the master of all tricks showed some magic in full speed and from an impossible angle.
Ok, fine, Rasmus Enström is the best player on earth, we got it. But with this sick shorthanded goal he embarrasses every single Växjö player on the field. Even the ones on the bench. And the coach and the mascot and even the janitor.
In the upcoming Superligan season three clubs will be playing in a floorball palace you had always been dreaming of. Welcome to Uppsala’s IFU Arena.
This spring Innebandymagazinet crowned Rasmus Enström player of the year. For the second time. The career of the 26-year-old forward goes hand in hand with Sweden’s resurrection as world’s strongest floorball nation. A portrait.
This summer Kim Nilsson shattered a very special record by becoming the world’s most expensive floorball player. The superstar did not return to AIK Stockholm, but instead joined FBC Kalmarsund, a club in the second highest Swedish competition. How did all this happen?
The Swedish SSL is giving more and more room to Czech talents. Martin Tokos is one of them. Moving from Dalen to Falun, the career of the 25-year-old is on a steep rise. “You have to deserve their respect on the field”, he says.
The Swedish Floorball Federation has just released its new promotion video. It sums up the past season and offers great highlights including some historic footage.
Sweden is not just a floorball powerhouse in the rink. The national federation presented fantastic statistics proving a strong growth of media coverage.
Yep, there were plenty of great shoot outs. But the 2011 Superligan final in Malmö between Storvreta and Warberg was one of a kind. 11.253 spectators saw a 16-round-battle decided by Stenberg’s game-winner.
Sure, Falun’s Adam Fernqvist is a world class defender. But in the 2012 semifinal match against Storvreta the then 22-year-old scored a world class own goal. Falun lost 5:6 but won the series and a few weeks later the Swedish title.
Looking for some solid floorball motivation for the new season? Check out the highlights of the latest Swedish Superfinal in front of 18.166 spectators. Pixbo grabbing the Women’s title with a 6:5 against Mora, Storvreta winning with 5:4 against Linköping.
Storvreta’s Viktor Klintsten might be world’s best floorball goalie right now. In Riga he could become Sweden’s dealbreaker, too. FloorballMedia sampled why. Here you go with six amazing saves performed by Viktor Klintsten.
