Team Phoenix is the dominating team in Hungary winning most of the trophies over the last 6 years. Their roster is the core for the national team as well. Last season they swept the league and the cup domestically. They´re already a well-known organization internationally, because they won the first ever EuroFloorball Challenge in 2016 and did an amazing and surprising performance during EuroFloorball Cup in 2017, last October, finishing as 5th place against highly ranked champions of Europe. They want to go back to that level of play, where they belong. With their experience and skills their goal is to win this tournament to become the kings of EuroFloorball Challenge.

FC MILANO MOLOTOV

Floorball Club Milano Molotov was founded on 22nd of February 2000 by a group of students, that since 1995 were practicing Floorball at school. FC Milano is one of the 8 founders of FIUF (the Italian Floorball Federation). After a "rebirth project" started in 2011 (when the "Molotov" nickname was added), FC Milano won this year the Italian Championship, and its aim at the EFCh is to show that this victory wasn´t the arrival point, but just the first step of a continuous improving path.

Players to watch

Gianluca Corti: Goalkeeper is "old but gold". Despite he is not in his 20´s, he still manages to make great saves, with an instinct for goalkeeping. In the Final Game he saved the day till the very last second.

Alex Kuusk: Estonian golden-boy is one of the best players in the roster, with high-level skills that allow him to play in every position. He begun to play in the team in 2011, and he´s now always in the starting line-up.

Marco Conti: One of the most motivated player in the team. He fights on every single ball, and he is not scared by opponents bigger or more experienced than him. His point of strength: velocity.
