Traditionally in the U19 championships the IFF, LOC and media representatives select the All-Star team. Additionally the LOC has presented each team with a prize for the Best Player after the last game of each team in the event.

For the upcoming Men’s U19 World Floorball Championships 2023 the IFF has rethought the concept and will introduce a new award format: the Fair Floorball Player Award. The recipient of the award will be nominated by the team management of each respective team.

– In any event there are players that stand out. They are the ones who are top of the scoring table or are dominant in their position. They have the best skills, the strongest shot, the best saves – they are our All-Star Players. But there are also the ones whose actions are about more than just scoring goals or winning games and it is important that we recognise players who display the best values of our sport – fair play and respect, whether it be for their opponent or referees. This new Fair Floorball Player award will do just that, by rewarding one player from each team who best displays these values throughout the event, explains IFF Event Manager Sarah Mitchell about her brainchild.

 

The Fair Floorball campaign is about the IFF values and the promotion thereof:

  • FairPlay – Anti-doping / Illegal betting/ Match-fixing / Game rules
  • FairAccess – Special Olympics / Wheelchair Floorball / Diverse formats of the sport
  • FairTreatment – Equality /LGBT+ / Discrimination / Racism / Respect
  • FairFuture – Youth / Development / Environment / Economic support

 

The award is brought to life in cooperation with the IFF Official Sports Apparel Provider PUMA that will sponsor the prizes for the awarded players.

This is a great match with our sustainability programmes. We share many of the values that Fair Floorball promotes so we are glad to support this player award for these young floorball talents, explains Anders Selin, Head of Teamsales PUMA Nordic.

In the selection of the winners the team management should look for a player who embodies the spirit of fair play, portrays sportsmanship, works hard for the team, encourages others, leads by example and acts as a role model.
