The 13th Women’s World Floorball Championships will now be played from Saturday 27th November to Sunday 5th December 2021.
Due to COVID-19, the IFF Central Board decided to postpone the Men’s WFC 2020 in Helsinki, Finland, from being played in December 2020 to 2021. This directly affected also the Women’s WFC 2021 in Uppsala, Sweden. The Finnish Floorball Federation applied for new dates to organise the Men’s WFC 2020 of 3rd – 11th December 2021, which clashed with the Women’s WFC 2021, which were planned to be played from the 4th – 12th December 2021.
– IFF has been in contact with both the Finnish and the Swedish Federation and discussed the situation. The main issue has been that there is limited arena availability in Helsinki. After thorough evaluation, the Swedish Floorball Federation and the City of Uppsala has been able to find a new solution, the best available in the current situation, which the IFF is really thankful for. The IFF CB has now approved the Swedish Federation’s proposal to play the Women’s WFC in Uppsala November 27th – December 5th, as this is the only other option in November, prior to the Men’s WFC. This will cause a three-day overlap with the Men’s WFC group stage that we need to take advantage of, says IFF Secretary General John Liljelund.

- Women’s World Floorball Championships will be played November 27th – December 5th in Uppsala, Sweden
