Big decisions that will have a great impact on the future of Swedish floorball are currently being made. Here’s the situation briefly summarized.

What is the PFL

The PFL is short for Premiere Floorball League. It was recently created by the SSL clubs association (FSSL) and is planned to start already in September. 11 women’s teams and 12 men’s teams have already signed up to play in it next season, while only 1 women’s team and 2 men’s teams has signed up for the Swedish Super League.

At the moment, the Swedish Floorball Federation own the league which the teams play in (SSL). They control the broadcast rights and hand out parts of the revenue to the clubs.

With disagreement between the clubs and the Swedish Floorball Federation about how the revenue should be divided and long negotiations without progress, the club organization has decided to start their own league where they will own the broadcast rights themselves.
