The City of Belleville, Ontario will host the U19 Women’s World Floorball Championships at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre May 4-8, 2016.
More than 400 athletes from 16 countries are confirmed to attend the tournament. This is the first time an IFF championship will be held in North America.
Floorball is a fast-paced, exciting, safe and low-cost type of indoor hockey. At first glance, it resembles floor hockey or ball hockey but is played with specialized light-weight fibre glass or carbon fibre sticks and rules that promote safety and skill. It is played all over the world and is extremely popular in Europe.
The economic spinoff for the region from this event is expected to be in excess of $1.2 million.
