Last weekend the Central Board of the IFF granted the rights to Uppsala, Sweden to organize not only the U19WFC in 2020 but also the WFC a year later. That means the IFU Arena will be the stage of the women U19 WFC 6-10 May 2020 and the women WFC 2020 which will be held 4-12 December.
Storvreta’s home base IFU Arena will be the place of two world championships. In the IFF board meeting, it was decided that Uppsala will host both tournaments. It will be a busy period coming up for everyone who loves floorball in central Sweden as the city will not only host these two tournaments but also, as part of preparation, the Finland-Sweden Challenge in February 2020 and the Euro Floorball Tour in November 2020.
Secretary General Göran Harnesk of the Swedish Floorball Federation: “Swedish Floorball wants to thank the IFF for the faith in us to re-host international events. We are looking forward to welcoming the floorball world to Sweden and Uppsala. Uppsala, with the IFU Arena, offers fantastic possibilities to organize these events under one roof.”
