WHAT IS FLOORBALL?
Floorball is one of the fastest growing sports internationally.
It is a fast and exciting sport that resembles indoor hockey.
The IFF (International Floorball Federation) has awarded the Men’s U19 World Floorball Championships for 2019 to Floorball Canada and it will be hosted in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
The tournament will be played from May 8-12, 2019.
Halifax is Canada’s east coast gateway and is leading floorball’s growth into North America. We are proud to share our heritage and hospitality with the world!
We are partnering with businesses to showcase floorball to our city, province, and nation. We have created various packages that will promote your brand during our tournament as we engage players and fans locally and around the world at this week-long premier international event.
We have developed a unique program to partner with Nova Scotia schools which will educate students about floorball and the cultures of participating nations. This program gives participating schools the opportunity to acquire free tickets to tournament games!
Hockey Canada has endorsed floorball as an ideal off-ice and hockey cross-training sport. We are partnering with Minor Hockey Associations and teams to have their players attend our Minor Hockey Night.
Halifax has a rich tradition of hosting marquee international events and embracing visitors and event attendees with our world-famous Maritime Hospitality. We are looking for volunteers who will help us make this tournament a world-class event. It’s the people who make it special!
