Watch Team Canada on Web-TV!

The International Floorball Federation announced today that all of the Under-19 World Championship games will be broadcast live on Web-TV. The IFF also announced that the top 3 teams from the B-Division will qualifiy directly to the 2013 World Floorball Championships.

All matches from the 6th Men´s U19 World Floorball Championships will be broadcasted live on Web-TV.

The live stream is provided through and is also linked to the offcial MU19 WFC website and the IFF webpage.  

MU19 WFC on German TV

In addition to that, all matches of the German MU19 national team can be tracked delayed on “Leipzig-Fernsehen”, “Dresden-Fernsehen”, “Chemnitz-Fernsehen” and “8Sport”. Besides that, exclusive WFC-Matches of the top nations will be televised by the regional sport channel “8Sport”. There has never been so much Floorball presence in German television before!

Top 11 teams from MU19 2011 qualified to MU19 WFC 2013

As floorball is spreading and teams from more continents participate in the U19 WFC there is a need to create more space for qualifying teams if a new continent enters the U19 competition

The IFF Rules and Competition Committee (RACC) therefore proposed to the IFF Exco to increase the number of open spots from 4 to 5, meaning that top 11 (the complete A-division and top 3 of the B-division) shall be directly qualified to the next U19 WFC.
