2012 WUC Floorball Update: HoD Meeting & Semi-Finals

PRAGUE – The day of May 25th ended for the Heads of Delegations by a meeting held at the Mayor’s residence after the invitation of the City of Prague in this beautiful residence dated from the XIXth century, where the FISU Executive Committee representative remitted a FISU award to the representative of the Mayor of Prague as well as to the Secretary General of the CAUS Vaclav Samberge.  

From this HOD meeting, we could see that all delegations are happy of the games and everyone is keen to arrive to the semi-finals. Schedules as well as colours, extra time information, penalty shots, but also information on media coverage information was given as well as information about doping control procedure, medal awardings and closing ceremony.

Adam Roczek presents a gift to the Mayor's rep.According to FISU CT Chair Ari Vehniainen, in both women’s and men’s teams, the best four teams attend this tournament, which is surely a very good experience for teams like Belgium, Japan and Austria who can come out stronger from that event.

For the future, one important matter is that IFF will help FISU to have teams in Singapore, the next organizer for the 6th World University Floorball Championship in 2014.

Indeed, we could be a little bit disappointed by the number of participation in this edition, counting 150 men, 80 women and 48 officials (total of 278) as this Championship is organized in the middle of Europe.

As explained by Ari, IFF received the visit of 3 persons from Shanghai in Helsinki interested to join the Floorball family and they really think that the easiest way is through the FISU World University Championship. After Japan entering, now we will have most probably also China.

Today, May 26th, started with the semi-finals with all top-quality games. Up to now this morning, the men’s match for the 7th place was decided with Austria winning against Japan 6 to 5. Slovakia and Belgium men’s teams played for the 5th place with a 4-1 victory for Slovakia. The Swedish and Swiss women played the semi-final, with the score of 15 to 6.
