Another season of world’s best floorball league is starting today! After a tumultuous transfer season, all teams are ready to battle for the Swedish Championships! Finally, we will see if Storvreta can continue their impeccable form, how Swedish national team captain Johan Samuelsson will fare with Falun, how fast Swiss international Tim Braillard will be of value to his team and whether FBC Kalmarsund, Kim Nilsson’s club, can meet the high expectations set to the team!
Note: games we recommend watching have an added exclamation mark.
18.30 Växjö – Linköping
It’s a tough start of the season for both. Växjö and Linköping are both contenders for a strong finishing position and outsiders for the Swedish Championship.
19.00 Storvreta – Dalen
Another close match. Historically, Storvreta has had quite the trouble dealing with the defense-oriented Dalen who they will welcome to the IFU Arena in their first SSL game after winning Swedish gold for the 2017/2018 season.
19.00 Örebro – Lindås
The newcomers of last year meet the newcomers of this year. As far as you can name a match ‘crucial’ in the first round, it will be an important match, to say the least. Örebro is not expected to gather many points this year after a weak transfer season so getting three points against hungry newcomers is definitely something they are aiming at.
19.00 Kalmarsund – Höllvikens
We’ll definitely tune in for this game and so should you. After many years, Kim Nilsson returns to the SSL! We will definitely post a video of his first goal but you’d want to watch it in real-time!
19.30 Falun – Sirius
The teams meet each other in the first round, again. Last year’s meeting resulted in an overtime penalty victory for Falun. This will be an interesting watch.
19.00 Jönköping – Mullsjö
In this emotion-laden derby, we will see Tim Braillard in his first official game with Mullsjö.
