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

Players didn’t need to be a world champion, a national team player, or even part of a regular competition. In fact, they didn’t even have to be European! The event was open to everyone from around the world – as long as they were old enough.

6 teams from five different countries took part in two competitions, 35+ & 45+. The tournament was held over three days from 1st – 3rd August at Palestra Palatucci, Torino.

 

Category 35+

Played with 2 x 15 minute periods in group games, and 2 x 20 minutes in play-offs. Full court with 5v5 + GK.
