The IFF Athletes’ Commission (ATC) was established in November 2007 by the IFF Central Board. It currently comprises 5 female and 4 male athlete representatives.

The primary role of the ATC is to serve as the voice for Floorball players worldwide. This is achieved by leveraging the experience and knowledge of floorball players in the development of the game of Floorball and the IFF Regulations. ATC members actively contribute to the preparation of Game Rule changes, the revision and implementation of Competition Regulations, the growth of IFF Competitions, and the promotion of the IFF’s Anti-Doping Policy. Notably, recent recommendations from the ATC have led to revisions in the compression wear policy for players and changes to the transfer rules.

Initially, commission members were appointed based on nominations by the Member Associations. From 2009 to 2016, elections for members took place during the Adult’s World Floorball Championships. Since 2016, elections have been conducted during the WFC qualifications, and the members’ terms were extended to four years.

In 2012, the IFF General Assembly voted to include the Chair of the Athletes’ Commission as a member of the IFF Central Board, thereby granting athletes a direct voice in the key decisions made by the IFF. The current Chair of the IFF Athletes’ Commission is Ms. Agata Plechan (POL).

Members of the Athletes’ Commission also actively contribute to various committees within the organization, including the Hall of Fame Committee, the Rules and Competition Committee, and the Entourage Committee, also Strategy Implementation Group, ensuring that athlete perspectives are integrated into a wide range of IFF initiatives and decision-making processes.

Furthermore, the Athletes’ Commission is consistently and actively visible at the largest floorball events worldwide, reinforcing their commitment to representing the interests and insights of floorball players on a global stage.

In addition, the Athletes’ Commission wholeheartedly supports each IFF campaign, such as “Stick With It!” and “Fair Floorball,” while also proudly representing the voices of floorball athletes at the most prominent athletes’ forums worldwide and workshops, organised by organisations like WADA and IOC.
