Floorball New Zealand congratulates the Men's Under 19 team for qualifying for the World Floorball Championships.

The Men´s U19 WFC will be played in Halifax, Canada, 8th - 12th May 2019, and this will be the first time that the Men´s U19 WFC has been held outside of Europe. This will also be the first time ever that a team from New Zealand will play in a final round. The team will play in the B Division:

     Poland (8)
     Germany (11)
     Canada (14)
     USA (15)
     Slovenia (17)
     Russia (27)
     Japan (16)
     New Zealand (21)

FNZ also offers a big thank you to the coaching and support staff - Christian Bertschinger, Jane Bertschinger, Oliver Scott and Helen Fisher. Without the hours of effort and support from a talented bunch of people the boys would never have this oppurtunity.




Onto the World Cup


The team will now start the preparation for Canada in May 2019. It will be a lot of hard work to prepare and get ready.

The NZ team has shown in the recent games that Floorball in NZ has made great progress and that our youth development programme is showing great results. We are keen to take it to the next level and show our dedication on the World stage.
