IBF Falun (SWE), SV Wiler-Ersigen (SUI), Florbal Chodov (CZE) and Classic (FIN) all became champions in April. Less than a month has passed but several changes has been made in the teams. Let’s have a look at the signings, player losses and rumors:

Only a few changes in Falun have been confirmed. Their 2 international players Bischofberger and Tokos will leave the club already after 1 season. Bischofberger will leave 1 champion for another as he transfers back to Switzerland and SV Wiler-Ersigen. Tokos‘ future is uncertain, however he’s said that he’d like to stay in Sweden. Their 20 year center Casper Backby, rated as the best talent in Sweden at the age of 15, and who did his national team debut in April is linked with newcomers Jönköping, as he’s reportedly looking for more a bigger role. Omar Aldeeb, who played played for Falun on a double license last season has signed a 2 year contract.

At least 5 new players (and 3 from the U21 team) will represent the Swiss champions next season. The return of Swiss international Nicola Bischofberger is a great addition that will strengthen the defender-lineup. Point producing Patrick Mendelin is rumored to leave the team, but Daniel Johnsson has already been signed. Johnsson, who stood for 51 goals for FC Helsingborg in SSL last season is definitely one of the hottest transfers of the summer.

Classic (Salibandyliiga)

After defeating EräViikingit 9-6 in the Superfinal, Classic became Finnish champion for the 2nd year in a row. After last year’s season, Asser Jääskeläinen from FC Helsingborg, as well as Joonas Pysly from Tigers Langnau in Swiss NLA were added to the team. So far they’ve not announced a single signing, despite several player losses. Nico Salo, rated as the 5th best player in the world, will join Mika Kohonen and FC Helsingborg in the Swedish Super League. But several exciting rumors are being spread – Ville Lastikka, who had an incredible season in SV Wiler-Ersigen could join the team. Sirius’ goalkeeper Jarno Ihme, who became world champion with Finland in December, has been linked with them as well.

Florbal Chodov (Czech Super League)

Just like Classic in Finland, Chodov became champions for the 2nd year in a row after surprising Mlada Boleslav in the Superfinal. So far they’ve had a solid silly season – they’ve lost their key player Patrik Doza to Köniz in Switzerland, but solid replacements have already been signed. 4 Czech national team players – 2 from SSL and 1 from NLA will bring great experience to the team. In Tom Ondrusek they get a sniper, and the addition of Michal Podhrasky will strengthen their defense even more.
