Welcome to the IFF WFCQ Americas in Detroit, USA,
Floorball has taken important steps to reach our Vision and ultimately a place in the Olympic Games. With the “Olympic Agenda 2020”, and “The New Norm” there are a lot of initiatives, including possible rotations of sports on the Olympic Programme, and the “upgrading” of the World Games. TWG 2017 in Poland was a huge success, both from the sporting as well as media and political perspectives. The road to TWG 2021 in Birmingham, Alabama, USA is on! TWG 2021 in the USA is of highest importance for the development for all the Americas.
Floorball’s own events, The WFC and the Continental Qualifications are very important from the sporting perspective, national teams need to play against each other, in order to improve and develop. At the same time, we need more events from the marketing/political side, to showcase floorball as a youth oriented and fast-growing sport worldwide. International floorball needs to grow on the big markets such as the USA and Canada.
The IFF, with the participating teams of the USA and Canada, convey our gratitude to the city of Detroit and the USA Floorball Federation, wishing you full success with the WFCQ!
