Andreas Lundmark continues as women´s head coach in Sweden – 22.02.2016
The Swedish women’s national team coach Andreas Lundmark has signed a new two-year contract. Now the focus will be on further development of both individuals and the national team.
In 2013 Andreas Lundmark took over as coach of the women´s team. The aim was to take the fifth consecutive World Floorball Championships gold. In December 2015 this goal was reached, when Sweden won the WFC final against Finland in a penalty shootout thriller in Tampere.
For Lundmark this was not enough and now he has signed a new two-year contract.
Lundmark says that he has created a good relationship with both the players and officials during the two years. But he believes that he still has more to give.
Will we see new players in the national team in the future?
- Absolutely. At the same time, the squad we elect is the one we believe in during that moment. This will be the focus. If a player is chosen, we believe that the player should be in the team. There are very exciting names that begin to take or have already taken the decisive steps, or will take the final step to the WFC in two years.
The next time the women´s team get together is in the Euro Floorball Tour (EFT), April 22 to 24. When they face Finland, Czech Republic and Switzerland in the Göransson Arena in Sandviken, Sweden.
Joakim Lindström, the National Team Director, is pleased with Lundmark´s decision.
- In addition to our goal of winning championships our ambition is to constantly strive towards developing our sport. Andreas is innovative and clear about what it takes to play in the Swedish national team. This means that we are well positioned to continue being the best team in the future.
