What is Floorball?
•   “Ice hockey without the injuries”
     Played in a gym
     Similar rules, similar skills
     1 ball but no ice!


•   1 netminder + at least 5 ‘field’ players
     Lightweight ball, lightweight sticks, unlimited subs
     = a VERY fast game
     How fast?
     –     whole outfield team is sub’d every 2 mins
     –     ball travels at 50-90mph
So Why Did They Make a New Sport?
•   Ice Hockey is a spectacular sport
     High speed action
     High speed crashes
     A little ‘minor ruffing’!


•   People wanted a more accessible sport
     No need to be an expert skater, forwards and backwards
     High speed skating means high speed accidents
     Protective kit costs £ hundreds
     Training on ice at midnight when the rink is available


•   The answer was obvious:



                       Floor-hockey
                                           but…
The Need for Speed

•   A puck on a wooden floor is too slow
•   There were many rulebooks with no governing body
•   One manufacturer, Unihoc Ltd, started to dominate
•   The sport became known as ‘unihoc’ causing copyright problems


                A new international standard was needed

•   A single set of rules
•   Can be promoted by all equipment manufacturers & sponsorship
•   So they needed a better solution…
