Minutes from the latest IFF central board meeting state that the World Floorball Championships U19 will probably be played in Harbin (China).
Every year a WFC U19 is being organized. This year it’s Växjö (Sweden) that hosts the men’s WFC U19, but in 2020 China wants to do this for the Women’s tournament. The IFF has investigated their bid and gave an evaluation with 667/1000 points:
– Event elements 76,3 %
– Financial elements 66,9%
– Sports Delivery elements 68,1 %
– Development element 50,1 %
Next steps to take are signing the Organisation Agreement and after that approving the China Floorball Federation (CFF) as organiser. More info will follow as the CFF now has time to sign the agreement (up till May 30). The IFF’s central board has its next meeting in July 2017.
