a) WFC 2013 Czech Republic

Mr. Suman gave a final report concerning the 9th Women‘s WFC 2013 held in Brno and Ostrava, Czech Republic. The follow-up process is still ongoing with-in the CFbU office. The main goal was to raise the level of the Women‘s WFC, close to the Men‘s WFC‘s. in order to reach this the LOC took a few risks with big venues. The spectator attendance goal was meet, with over 43.000 spectators and rising the level of the event was reached. The Event took a lot of effort of the CFbU administration, but the huge investment of the whole CFbU employees paid off in the end. The final result will be at least even for the WFC in the end.

The TV numbers were quite amazing, for example over 600.000 watched the Czech bronze match at least for a while. The CFbU believe that there will be a positive legacy of the Event for both Czech and International Floorball. The internal evaluation process is still ongoing.

Mr. King asked how the LOC , was so successful with the cooperation with the schools. Mr. Suman expressed that there was a different approach to the primary and secondary schools. The CFbU set up the basic system, organised competitions for the schools.

Mr. Wolmhed gave a final Jury report from the 9th Women‘s WFC 2013, which can be convinced as a really good championship. The move of the City was the only real issue during the Event. The cooperation worked well with the LOC. All the team behaved very well, during the Championships, making it an extraordinary event. The new structure of the WFC has proven to be really good, with a decrease of the goal difference with around 20 per cent compared to the previous event.

The CB decided: To approve the reports.


Mr. Liljelund gave an update about the TV broadcasting and the visibility achieved in both spectators and airing time, with the different TV Companies and the host broadcaster Czech TV. (Appendix 5). The total number of TV spectators reached close to 2,3 mill.

The LOC is planning to conduct the ballot for the event on the 25th of February, after the Sochi Olympic Games, in Gothenburg to settle the groups. The RACC is preparing the ballot in order for the organiser to be able to conduct it. The tickets will be released 20th of March and a information letter will be sent out to the teams. There is a lot of practical work going on.

Mr. Kratz reported on the six qualification tournaments played in the end of January and the teams qualified for the WFC Final round in Sweden are Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Norway, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland and USA. The WFC 2014 organiser has now been provided the basis for the drawing of the final round groups.
The six qualifications have been organised very well simultaneously, with only a few problems in Canada, where Jamaica arrived very late without shirts and the live stream didn‘t work. The qualifications had over 25.000 spectators in the 63 matches.

Mr. Suman informed that with 30 countries played simultaneously, is exceptional that we are able to handle this organisation in a successful way.

Mr. Wolmhed felt that it is amazing that the administration was able to run the qualifications, with the support of the RACC and the RC.

Mr. Eriksson concluded that the selected strategy to have all qualifying to the WFC has proven to be the right decision and the Floorball has taken a great step forward.

Mr. Wolmhed further reported on the WFC Test Event organised by the Swedish Federation in the Scandinavium on the 3rd of January, 2014 and the technical inspection made in the Arena during the Event, which served as an Opening of the Gothia Floorball Cup.

The Event was really good; with over 11.000 spectators was a really good event for the organiser. There were a lot of small minor things, which the organiser has collected in a survey. The IFF will work with this in the preparatory phase.

Mr. Liljelund reported on the situation concerning the TV negotiations with the host broadcaster TV4. The TV will have a site check in the Venue on the 6th of February, after which a meeting with IFF will take place on Monday the 10th of February, to coordinate the placement of the TV cameras in the venue.

Mr. Kratz reported on the preparations made for the U19 WFC 2014 Final round played in Poland. The semifinals and final have been decided to be played in the venue in Zbaszyn, in order to have a better quality surrounding for the matches. The IFF had wished for another solution, but the LOC has worked with the arena, to have more spectators.
Mr. Kratz further reported about the preparatory meeting to be held with Polish LOC in the end of March 2014.

The CB decided: To approve the report


d) WFC 2015 Finland

Mr. Kratz reported on the registrations to the WFC 2015 where 24 teams have registered (18 from Europe, 4 from AOFC and 2 from Americas) and that the invitation for organizers for the qualifications has been sent out. There is a need for one group in Americas, one in AOFC and three in Europe. There are still negotiations ongoing with two potential participants.
Mr. Liljelund informed that the negotiations with the Finnish Federation, concerning the organisers agreement will take place in March.

The CB decided: To approve the report


e) U19 WFC 2015 Sweden

Mr. Kratz reported on the registrations to the U19 WFC 2015 where 24 teams have registered (20 from Europe, 2 from AOFC and 2 from Americas). The top 10 from U19 WFC 2013, all from Europe, are directly qualified meaning that 6 spots are open. Russia and Australia, has not registered from the teams that participated in the previous U19 WFC.

Mr.Kratz proposed that 2 spots shall be given to AOFC and 2 spots to Americas, meaning that two for this age level very expensive qualifications can be avoided, and 2 spots for the European teams not directly qualified. The proposal for the European qualification is to play in two qualifications of 5 teams each and that these qualifications should basically be divided after ranking but also taking into consideration the travels. Discussions with possible organizers for the U19 WFC qualifications have already started.

Mr. Kratz further informed that the Estonian federation has approached the IFF with a letter concerning the number of directly qualified teams for the U19 WFC 2015 (Appendix 19).The argument is that the number of qualified teams had been changed to the Competition Regulation edition 2013, where 11 teams were directly qualified. The IFF Jury informed at the technical meeting in Hamburg, that only ten teams are directly qualified.

The Estonian team participated in the technical meeting. The IFF and the Estonian federation have discussed this after the invitation has been sent out.

Mr. Eriksson proposed that IFF Competition department will inform that the decision of the number of directly qualified teams had been decided by the RACC prior to the U19 WFC 2013 and informed accordingly in the U19 WFC 2013 technical meeting in Hamburg, Germany. The edition of the Competition Regulation 2013 was valid for the U19 WFC 2013 and not the coming event.

Mr. Suman felt that it would be important for IFF to inform about these kind of important issues also directly to the member associations, since it is not always the information is forwarded to the member associations.

The CB decided: To approve the report, the division of spots for those not directly qualified and system for the European qualification. In addition the CB decided to answer the Estonian association accordingly.


§ 6. EuroFloorball Cup

a) EuroFloorball Cup 2014

Mr. Kratz reported on the actions taken to secure an organiser for the EFC qualifications and the EFC Final round 2014. Discussions have been started with Norway and Russia regarding the organisation of the EFC 2014 Final round. The Russian federation is interested to organise the event in the vicinity of Moscow.

The question relating the qualifications is still open and needs to be dealt by before the IFF CB meeting in May as well that the RACC will start the discussion on how to move forward with the EFC competition.

The CB decided: To approve the report


b) Champions Cup

Mr. Suman reported on the situation in connection to how to continue with the playing of the Champions Cup after the present agreement runs out in the end of 2014. The CC Steering Group had in its meeting in November defined that the format of the competition continue as it is, with the strong relation to the EFC, securing the participation of the EFC winner and with a second team from the organising country. (Appendix 7)

The CC Steering Group however was also agreeing on the fact that something needs to be done to secure the finance of the Event, whether it is a combination of cost saving as much as finding new revenue streams for the Event.

The CC Steering Group asked the EFT Countries Associations, at its meeting on November 7th, to come up with proposals by the 20th of December, how the finances of the CC could be made better and the competition could increase its value. All four countries came with their proposals, but due to different reasons the last proposal was only handed in on the 23rd of January, 2014.

The proposals were unfortunately much wider than the question asked, with the SUHV asking for a thorough re-examination of the whole basis of the Champions Cup within all stakeholders, including clubs, players, media and fans and also to look over the timing of the Event.

The SIBF has proposed a number of financial innovations to secure the finances of the event and also proposing a change of the competition system with a move to a Final Four (only four teams, which would heavily effect the connection to the EFC). The CFbU and SSBL are both in favour of the present competition model with six teams, but also they are looking for different ways to enhance the financial result of the tournament. (Appendix 8a and Appendix 8b)

Mr. Suman reported that there has been a meeting held with the four EFT Presidents, where all agreed that there needs to be a top European club competition. The problem is the financial equation of the CC, but there are no real proposals on how to sort this out.

Mr. Suman further reported that based on this changed situation the IFF Presidium has decided that the IFF CB needs to discuss this situation first in order to reach a common understanding of the format of the competition, before any practical new plans can be dealt with. Mr. Suman concluded that it is very important that the countries should be prepared for the meetings prepared by the IFF, in order not to lose speed in the process. The CB needs to define a common view on how to deal with the competition and what we are ready to do in order for securing it.

Mr. Eriksson felt that there needs to be an agreement of the Champions Cup format by the EFT countries before we can go forward. It is on the shoulders of IFF to lead the process and secure the international interests.

Ms. Mikkola stated that the Champions Cup is a cool brand and it is valuable for the international development.

Mr. Wolmhed expressed that the process is still ongoing in Sweden on how to work with the club competitions.

The CB discussed about the format of the competition and Mr. Liljelund proposed that the IFF Office should make a proposal to go forward and set a time line, in order for the EFT Countries to agree upon.

The CC Steering Group will be given the task to work with the new proposals to enhance the financial conditions to the IFF CB May meeting.

Mr. Kratz reported in the absence of Mr. Bollinger on the Swiss preparations of the Champions Cup 2014. The preparations are ongoing for the tournament in the Saalsportshalle, with accommodation in a nearby youth hostel and public transportation. They have started with a marketing company and preparing a sponsor brochure by the end of February.

The CB decided: To approve the reports and decide to give the IFF Office the task to make a first proposal of the format of the Event and give the CC Steering Group the task to bring a final proposal to the CB in May.

b) Contacts to International Sports Organisations

Mr. Eriksson firstly reported on the demonstration tournament played in Myanmar in connection to the SEA Games and the reflection from that tournament. The next SEA Games are organised in Singapore in 2015, on June 5th -16th, just recently set by Singapore Olympic Council, and Floorball is a top candidate, among six sports, to be included as a medal sport proposed by the Singaporeans, which is to be decided in February on the program. IFF will take action after the decision has been made public.
IFF have asked how IFF can support the Singapore Floorball Association and the Singapore NOC on how we can support the process.

In the field of the International Lobbying the main focus is to spread the knowledge of Floorball among the International decision makers and here the SportAccord Convention will be a crucial event for us. The SportAccord is organised in Belek, Turkey from 6th to 11th of April.

Mr. Eriksson further informed that the long time serving president of the IWGA Mr. Ron Froehlich has informed that he will step down in Belek, which means that the political situation has dramatically changed in respect to our application for the World Games. Now the situation is totally open on who will become the President and how this will affect the decision of the sport program of the World Games. There are three candidates for the position of President, Mr. José Perurena Lopez, IOC member and President in Canoeing, Mr. Max Bishop, former Secretary General from Aeronautics, and Mr. Harald Vervaecke, from Life Saving.

IFF will seek advice from its partners in front of the meeting, in order to try to secure a place in the games.

(Appendix 11) Mr. Eriksson has arranged a number of meetings with different sports leaders in Sochi, to discuss the matter.

The IFF Entourage Regulation is built on the guidelines given by the IOC. (Appendix 13) Based on these Guidelines the Office will then produce different Codes of Conduct for the Entourage and start the preparations to make a proposal for the forming of an Entourage Committee.

Mr. Liljelund also brought a proposal to the meeting for the IFF Code of Ethics and the Conflict of Interest Policy in order for the CB to discuss on these. (Appendix 14a, Appendix 14b)

This Technical Document (TD) will be prepared by the WADA expert group will then establish the sample analysis methods and the substances which shall be analysed for each sport. WADA has asked the input for the TD document including physiological studies of Floorball to be sent by the end of February 2014.

In addition Mr. Halonen reported that the IFF has been contacted by the Swedish Floorball Research and development Centre in Umeå about promoting the centre and their activities.
