§ 1. New IFF International Competition Calendar
During the last CB meeting held in Varberg, Sweden the CB decided to investigate a possible move of the Adult WFC‘s to December, taking into account the need to change the international calendar. In view of the huge consequences, when changing the timing of the senior events it was proposed to form a working group.
The CB further decided to form a working group headed by Mr. Orlando, consisting by Mr. Jansson, Mr. Kauppinen and Mr. Suman and the Office representatives to investigate the possibility change of timing of the senior WFC. The Working Group met in Helsinki on the 28th of January and has made the following proposal to the CB. (Appendix 1)
The Czech Floorball Federation has agreed to organise the WFC 2008 in December and the Swiss Floorball Federation has agreed to the change starting from 2008, which means that they will organise the Women´s U19 WFC 2008 in the spring and the Final Round of the EFC 2008 in October. The Finnish Floorball Federation has trough Mr. Kauppinen raised a concern related to the timing of the U19 championships, which in their view is played to early and proposes to move it with one or two weeks into May.
The CB decided: to approve the proposal of the working group, with the small change that the U19 WFC shall be played during the first week of May, and thereby change the IFF International competition calendar accordingly.
