WFC 2020: Qualification groups Europe and Asia-Oceania

At the beginning of 2020, the Qualifiers for the World Floorball Championships will be played. Three teams – Finland, the USA, and Canada – have already qualified, thirteen more will follow from four WFCQ groups.

From three European groups – EUR1, EUR2, and EUR3, nine countries will qualify, three per group. Each EUR group is divided into A and B. The winner from A qualifies, just like the winner from B. The third qualifier is the winner of the playoff game between the runner-up from A and B.

Example: in EUR1 Sweden (group A) and Denmark (group B) might win all games, which means they’ll qualify. Poland and Estonia might become the runner-ups in group A (Poland) and B (Estonia). They will play a playoff game to decide who will become the third qualified team from EUR1.

Surprisingly, an African team also competes: Cote d’Ivoire. The team joins the EUR2 group, in which they will face Switzerland, Russia, and Belgium.

In the AOFC group, the top 4 will qualify: the winners of AOFC A and AOFC B, and the winners of the playoffs between the numbers 2 and 3 of both groups.
