The IFF is excited to launch the first ever World Virtual Freestyle Floorball Cup (WVFFC) 2020. This is a competition where every floorballer can take part by showing their best tricks or skills within a certain time-limit. The competition is organised virtually and the winner will be crowned based on social media voting. 

– The aim of this new competition format is to activate floorball players around the world and organise events utilising new virtual concepts, especially now during the COVID-19 times. In addition, this event format gives the possibility for players from countries and young players with no national teams, to participate in an official IFF Event, says IFF Communications & Anti-Doping Manager Merita Bruun.

The IFF wants all skilful floorball players to film a video of their best freestyle floorball moves (for example include zorro moves and/or other tricks) and send them to the IFF media team (media@floorball.sport) before October 26th!

– As this is a new competition, we want to keep the format somewhat flexible. At this point, it is hard to predict how many participants we will have, so therefore we want to keep an option open for having a preliminary round with an IFF jury deciding about the finalists going to the final social media voting. We hope that our followers will participate actively since now they get a chance to show their individual skills! IFF Information Coordinator Mari Myllärinen adds.
