Call for selection in the Philippine men’s national floorball team for AOFC Cup

Filipino floorball players worldwide are invited to sign-up for selection to the Philippine men’s national floorball team who will be competing in the upcoming Asia-Oceania Floorball Confederation (AOFC) Cup in Thailand in late June 2017. The AOFC
is introducing this new regional championship which will be a stand-alone event, unlike in the past where it is usually held in conjunction with the World Floorball Championship (WFC) qualification events.

The Philippine men’s floorball team will be led by Mr. Peter Eriksson as the head coach for this AOFC Cup campaign. Eriksson, who together with his family has been living in the Philippines, is pleased with the fast development of the local players and is confident to improve a lot as a team before the Cup in Thailand. In order to further improve the country’s performance in the tournament, the team is open to have reinforcement players abroad who are playing in other national leagues such as in Sweden, Finland, as well as other European and Asian countries.

The AOFC will alternate from year to year from men´s & women´s competition. In 2017, as it is a WFC year for women, the AOFC Cup will be for men. In 2018, it will be for women, which the Philippines is lobbying to host in Manila. Further, the national team’s performance in the AOFC Cup is significant for the PFA’s recognition from the Philippine Olympic Committee and for the eventual inclusion of floorball in the 2019 SEA Games Manila. Thus, Filipino players from all over the world are invited to take part and have the opportunity to represent their home country.
