China will no longer be hosting the U19 WFC of 2020. Due to a lack of administrative resources, a disputed legal position and a lack of financial resources the Chinese Floorball Federation (CFF) will be unable to organize the tournament.
Negotiations between the CFF and the International Floorball Federation (IFF) have ended concerning the U19 WFC which was to be held in Harbin, China in 2020. The IFF stated three reasons for the cancellation. During an IFF visit to China it became clear that the CFF is (yet) not officially approved as an independent association but organized under the Chinese Ice Hockey Association. Therefore, the CFF is unable to receive financial support from the government which was needed to fund the tournament and increase the administrative resources.
The IFF reported that there are ongoing discussions with a potential new organizer.
