The European Masters Games (EMG) is an international multisport event that takes place every four years. This year the event takes place in Torino, Italy from 26th July – 4th of August, and Floorball will be on the programme for the first time.

You don’t need to be a world champion, a national team player, or even part of a regular competition. In fact, you don’t even have to be European! The event is open to everyone (as long as you are old enough) from around the world. So, get your friends together and enter a team.

 

Registrations are now open. Visit the EMG Torino 2019 website for more information.
