The deadline to send in videos for the first ever World Virtual Freestyle Floorball Cup (WVFFC) is approaching. All WVFFC video clips need to be sent to media@floorball.sport by 26th October 2020 at midnight CET.

– So far we have received videos from around 30 different countries and it is great to see that players of different ages participate, the youngest contestant currently is 10 years old. What we would love to see more is videos from girls and women as currently around 90 % are male participants, says IFF Communications & Anti-Doping Manager Merita Bruun.

The WVFFC 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.

– We are also still missing videos from for example many countries in Asia and in South America. Luckily there’s still time for participants to work on their videos before the deadline, IFF Information Coordinator Mari Myllärinen adds.

The given rules for the competition have been quite flexible. The preferred format for videos is landscape, but it is not mandatory. There has also been questions if pairs and groups can take part, and that is allowed, but the input is then considered as one participant. The participants are still required to stick to the time limit of 15-30 seconds.

Have a look at a summary clip of videos received so far:
