The Champions Cup 2017 is starting in just a couple of days. FloorballToday gives a brief overview of every team.

Information about the team
Classic is Finland’s current champion and will join the Champions Cup for the second time in a row. Last year, the team made it to the finals after convincingly defeating Pixbo Wallenstam in the semifinals. However, a 2-1 defeat against Storvreta shattered the dreams of obtaining their first Champions Cup medal. What is in store for them this year? The team has the luxury to skip the quarter finals and play the semifinals against the winner of the match between Florbal Chodov (CZE) and UHC Sparkasse Weissenfels (GER). Can they beat the fierce competition, like Swedish champions Falun and host team SPV, and take their first ever trophy?
