Acceptance of the world anti-doping code
Dear Mr. Syväsalmi,
The International Floorball Federation (IFF) wants to show our commitment to sports and our willingness to take part in all fields and share our mutual responsibility. Therefore the IFF has applied to GAISF to become an ordinary member, well aware that such an application will not be treated until 2004.
We also aim to apply for membership of the IWGA, an application that can’t be treated until the IFF has gained ordinary membership of GAISF. Meanwhile we will humbly ask the IWGA to be given an observer status at the World Games in Duisburg 2005 – to be able to learn for upcoming World Games where we hope to be a participant.
The IFF Central Board fully agree and has decided to accept the World Anti-Doping Code, decided by the WADA Foundation Board on March 5 2003, as the basis for the fight against doping in sports and will implement it into our statutes, rules and regulations.
By the end of March 2003 the IFF consists of 31 member Associations with 3.900 clubs and 208.000 registered players.
Looking forward to our future co-operation, we remain
International Floorball Federation
Tomas Eriksson Stefan Kratz
President Secretary general
Enclosure: Signed acceptance of the World Anti-Doping Code
