The Latvian team Bauska won both the 35+ and 45+ categories in the European Masters Games (EMG) 2019. A total of six teams played in the first ever EMG floorball tournament July 31st – August 4th in Torino, Italy.

Bauska defeated the Czech team Vysočani Rossoneri in the final 6-1 and SKP Falkoni Holešov from Czech Republic won the bronze match against Tigers from Finland 11-6.

– The event was really nice, a lot of fair-play and entertaining games. And even if the floor wasn’t perfect and the weather was really hot, everyone was happy about the event. The floorball tournament was quite small, but I am really happy we have been able to organise the very first EMG in floorball, Mr. Giorgio Rambaldi, the Italian Federation President, comments.
