Mr. Filip Suman – President of the Czech Floorball Union and Vice President of International Floorball Federation.

“Czech floorball union has been in close cooperation with floorball of the handicapped for many years and I am very glad that the Czech republic will have the honour to welcome the first international tournament of wheelchair floorball in history.

I think that this tournament indicates yet more that floorball is winning good recognition internationally and I personally wish that all the floorball federations start even more intense cooperation and partnership with handicapped sportsmen in their countries.

According to the reactions of a number of players in our country floorball is a wonderful sport for them no matter what handicap they have and I strongly believe that the upcoming tournament will help to develop our sport among all of us.”  Filip Suman
