The king is dead, long live the king. We enjoyed our time in Riga and learnt so much. More or less. In 2018 Prague will be hosting the event and there’s a lot to consider.
At the World Floorball Championships in Riga success is a question of money, too. Many smaller federations try to save their budgets with crowdfunding. But they fail. So how to do it right?
Altogether 33 hours of competition will be streamed from the coming Men’s World Floorball Championships on the IOC’s new Olympic Channel. But what does that platform really mean for sports and floorball in particular?
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.
Many floorball clubs have already discovered the potential of merchandising for their budget and identity. Others act pretty dozy. But don’t worry, we’ll wake you up.
Last year the Czechs installed their new Corporate Identity. New name, new colors, new shapes, new everything. One year later we know, this is the best design thing that ever happened to a floorball federation. And everyone can learn from it.
Some floorball legends have never scored an overtime goal, have never made an impressive tackle or stopped a shot. Petr Cerny and his long term referee fellow Jiri Janousek for example.

Cerny and Janousek have whistled all major IFF finals, the most prestigious one, the WFC Men’s final, even twice (2012 and 2014). A third will not follow. After almost 22 years Cerny and Janousek decided to call…
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.
Rasmus Sundstedt, Johan Samuelsson, Billy Nilsson, Emil Julkunen. JACT, the first floorball player agency in the world, operates behind most of this year’s big transfers. CEO Jonas Thomsson explains how all began, what the processes look like today and how you can become one of over 100 represented clients.
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.
Something very special happened this weekend. Sweden lost an international tournament final. Twice. And Finland won. Twice, as well. The World University Championship were hosted by Porto, Portugal, and they offered an outstanding competition.
Sweden is not just a floorball powerhouse in the rink. The national federation presented fantastic statistics proving a strong growth of media coverage.
We all love to talk about floorball as a progressive and modern discipline. Unfortunately most of our clubs are far away from working with appealing designs. 8 rules how to change this.
Tom Kollmar, a young floorball developer from Bonn, Germany, spent six months in Peru. What he experienced “grounded” him, he says. Here comes his story about criminal dogs, broken glass and greatful kids.
Winning sponsors that would finance all of your floorball club’s costs is a heavy struggle. But what do such companies actually look for? What are the criteria making them pick you instead of your local competition?
