Liljelund elected to ARISF Council – 04.04.2017

The IFF secretary general Mr. John Liljelund has yesterday been elected to the Council of the Association of IOC Recognised International Sport Federations (ARISF) with the highest number of votes in the ARISF Annual General Meeting in connection to the SportAccord Convention in Aarhus, Denmark.

This is a breakthrough for the IFF, as this is the first position in an international umbrella sports organization for Floorball and it will open a lot of new possibilities for our sport. It will also give us access to a number of tables, which we have not before been a part of.
- I would like to congratulate John for a well-run successful election campaign and the election, says the IFF President Tomas Eriksson.

It is an interest organization of the IOC recognized federations. The Council will in the coming years work with three main questions trying to find more support, both financially and politically from the IOC towards the ARISF members, lay down a strategic plan for how the ARISF IF’s should be incorporated in the general sports community and try to build the finances of the ARISF, not to be only depending of the IOC.

- It is a great honour and challenge to be on the ARISF council, as it will give a very good insight in the development of the International Sports movement, with yearly meetings with the IOC and SportAccord.
I look forward working in the ARISF council to enhance the position of the recognized sports, Floorball very much included
