IFF Equipment support for developing floorball countries – 25.05.2011

IFF has continues to supported the developing nations by sending support packages to several countries.

The support packages include printed educational and promotional material as well as floorball sticks and balls. Also goalkeeper equipment has been sent.

The basic idea for this support is that there are many countries that need sticks and balls and there are no commercial distributors in their own country. The support program started in 2007 with the amount of 235 sticks and some 800 balls. The program has grown ever since and the level of equipment support is at the time about 1000 sticks and 2000 balls annually.

The IFF has sent equipment to Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, North America and South America. In Europe the countries, which have received the material support, are mainly Eastern European countries.

Asia has also been quite a big support receiver as well as Africa.

IFF Supported project in Iran in 2010

In 2010 the IFF supported for example the new IFF member Iran (member since December 2009) and the Philippines. Philippines Floorball is the latest national association to become an IFF member.

Some new countries have become part of the program in 2011, such as Costa Rica, Malawi and the newest one, Jamaica. It has turned out to be a good way to promote the sports worldwide and it has helped many countries to start Floorball and also helped them to make contacts to the manufactorers in order to get more Floorball equipment. You can ask for more information about the equipment support from Mr. Veli Halonen from the IFF office.
