China has also registered for the 11th 2017 Women´s World Floorball Championships and 31 teams will take part in the event. This is a new Women´s WFC record! The host city has also been decided and the WFC 2017 will be played in Bratislava.
There will be a total of 6 groups - one in the Americas, one in Asia-Oceania and four in Europe. China´s participation is still to be confirmed by the IFF Central Board.
A new record of 31 teams registered for WFC 2017. Four countries will make their debut at this level - Ukraine, Iran, Thailand & China. For Ukraine, Iran and China this will be the first-ever international appearance for their women´s team, while Thailand will be hoping to follow up from their strong international start at the 2015 SEA Games, where they finished second to Singapore. Slovenia, Austria & Korea are all returning after a break from competing at this level.
In Europe, there will be four qualification groups with two event locations. EUR 1 & EUR 4 will play in Madrid, Spain, while EUR 2 & EUR 3 will be hosted by Celano, Italy. The Asia-Oceania qualifiers will return to Wellington, New Zealand which successfully hosted the Men´s AOFC qualifications in 2014, while the location of the Americas qualifications is still to be confirmed.
All teams, apart from the host country (Slovakia), will have to qualify for the Final Round via the qualifications. After being exempt from the qualifications in 2015 due to their hosting of the final event, this will be the first time that the Finnish women´s team have ever participated in a qualification round for WFC.
