A total of 32 teams have registered for the 11th Women´s World Floorball Championships 2017 - a new record. 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 & Malaysia are all returning after a break of several years from competing at this level.

As well as this qualification in Americas, other regional qualifications will be held in Europe and Asia-Oceania.

Qualification System

All teams apart from the host country (Slovakia) must compete through qualifications.

From Americas, the top placed team will qualify. From AOFC, 4 teams will qualify, and from Europe 10 teams plus Slovakia will qualify.


Final Round

Slovakia will for the first time host an adult World Championship final round event. They are experienced IFF event organisers, having hosted the Women´s U19 WFC, WFC Qualifications for both men & women, and several EuroFloorball Cup events.

WFC 2017 will be played in Bratislava in two arenas - Arena Ondreja Nepelu & Hant Arena, which are located 500m from each other in central Bratislava. The main arena, renovated in 2011, can seat 10,000 spectators and is used mainly for ice hockey and concerts.
