The President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö, has been named as the Patron of the 13th Men’s World Floorball Championships.
The WFC 2020 will be held in Helsinki, December 4th-12th, and this will be the biggest international sport event organised in Finland during 2020.
World Floorball Championships 2020 promoted already this summer
The promotional event schedule for the WFC 2020 includes for example the SunSäbä tour and the Finnish workplace floorball championships. These events will be held in Finland this spring and summer. The SunSäbä tour will bring joy to 16 towns during the summer. SunSäbä (SunFloorball) is a form of floorball suitable for playing outdoors on a mobile multisport flooring, which can be used for other sports as well.
The Event Director, Hanne Pirkola, sums up the plans for the upcoming summer:
– It’s important for us to be able to help people of different ages who play or are interested in floorball to get active. The World Championships are still far away, but we want to bring the tournament atmosphere to where most of the action is: to the playing fields and various events.
