The Men’s World Floorball Championships record list got updated during the WFC 2022 in Switzerland. Mathias Glass, Ketil Kronberg and Kim Nilsson have now their names on that list.
Mathias Glass – most goals in a single Men’s WFC
Mathias Glass represented Denmark for the third time in the Men’s WFC and scored a total of 16 goals in six matches. This makes him the player with most goals in a single Men’s World Championships tournament. The previous record of 15 goals was shared by three players: Valtteri Viitakoski and Patrik Kareliusson scored 15 goals during WFC 2020 in Helsinki while Rasmus Enström had scored a record number of goals back in 2012 in Switzerland.
Ketil Kronberg – most WFC tournaments & WFC matches
Ketil Kronberg made history by becoming the first player with most Men’s WFC tournaments (12) and WFC matches (64). Kronberg represented Norway for the first time in the third edition of the Men’s WFC in 2000. This event was hosted by three Norwegian cities: Drammen, Oslo, & Sarpsborg. The floorball legend is third in the overall scoring leader statistics with 88 points.
Kim Nilsson – joint top goal scorer in the Men’s WFC
Kim Nilsson also got his name on the record list, when he joined Willy Fauskanger as the top goal scorer in the overall WFC records (58 goals). Nilsson scored eight goals during WFC 2022 and he is just one goal away from a new record. Will we see this in 2024 when Sweden will host the 15th Men’s World Floorball Championships in Malmö? Nilsson has the fourth place in the overall scoring leader statistics with 85 points.
