The legend of Slovak floorball and one of the biggest personalities of this sport in Slovakia, Denisa Ferenčíková has put an end to her active career. Ferenčíková played 101 matches in the women’s national team and together with Lukáš Řezanin, she was included in the Slovak Floorball Hall of Fame in 2022.

The native of Tvrdošín dedicated a large part of her life to this beautiful sport. She sacrificed time and energy for it and everything gradually returned to her in the form of national team and club successes. Her original club was FBK Tvrdošín and she worked in Vítkovice from 2010 winning 5 championship titles with the club team. Together with her teammate and friend Michaela Šponiarová, they equaled their former teammate Veronika Třinecká.

Ferenčíková also became the first player in the history of the Czech Superfinal who played in it a record 7 times. This is the women’s record of participation in this format of the fight for the Czech championship title. During season 2018/2019Ferenčíková represented Classic in the Finnish league.

She probably could not have imagined a better ending and completion of a rich and successful career. In the recent Czech Superfinal, she captained her team to a seventh championship overall. In front of more than 10,000 spectators she experienced the unique atmosphere of the peak of the season and personally of her entire career. With the captain’s armband on her hand, she was the first to lift the trophy for the winners of the Czech Extraliga.

Ferenčíková played 101 matches in the national team. She represented the women’s team in six World Championships and the WU19 team in two World Championships. She said goodbye to the most valuable jersey at the World Championships in Uppsala, Sweden in 2021 after the match for 5th place against Poland. It was not a victorious farewell, but that also belongs to the sports journey. She closed her senior national team record with 72 goals and 60 assists.

The biggest national team success which she will remember for the rest of her life, was the 5th place at the home WFC in Bratislava in 2017 and the quarter-final match against Finland.

— I will never forget the quarter-final match against the Finns at the 2017 World Championships in Bratislava. At that time, we were probably the closest to progressing to the semi-finals.
