The first round of selections for the men’s national team that will compete at the World Floorball Championships in Finland in December 2020 has been completed.

USA Floorball are pleased to be able to present the first 11 players selected to participate at the WFC. The number of players vying to be part of the men’s national floorball team is growing and the selection process has been tough but is now complete. The final WFC-squad will be 20 players so there are still spots to fight for.

“We have selected a good mix of players. Some that have played at the men’s World Floorball Championships before and know what it takes to be successful at the senior level as well as players from our U19-program that are ready to take the next step and are the future of the men’s national team,” says head coach Joel Olofsson.

If all goes to plan the World Floorball Championships will be played the 4th – 12th December in Helsinki in Finland. Team USA are scheduled to start the championships with a game against Slovakia on the 4th of December at 16:45 local time.

With the current pandemic in  mind there is of course an uncertainty surrounding the WFC in December. As a result of this the final round of selections will take place once the International Floorball Federation have made their Go/No-Go decision currently set to the 1st of October at the latest.
