During the recent Men’s World Floorball Championships held in Prague, FAT PIPE and the Philippine Floorball Association (PFA) have agreed to establish its partnership in developing floorball in the Philippines, contributing to the overall growth of the sport in the Asian region. One of the leading floorball brands FAT PIPE has committed to be the official floorball equipment partner of Pilipinas Floorball.
The Finland-based company FAT PIPE represented by Sami Turtainen and PFA President Ralph Ramos sealed its partnership at the Clarion City Hotel Prague last 9 December 2018. Sharing the same values beyond competition, FAT PIPE and Pilipinas Floorball will join forces to make floorball the most exciting and accessible sport for over 100 million people in the Philippines through development projects and competition events throughout the country, including an international tournament in July 2019 and leading up to the SEA Games Floorball competition in November 2019.
This is not the first time that FAT PIPE and PFA have collaborated in developing the sport in the country. In 2017, FAT PIPE has provided additional support to the Palaro Floorball Project of the PFA. The project was initiated through the IFF Material Board grant which aims to develop local teachers to start their own floorball team in their area, particularly focusing on children ages 12 years and under. Also, the objective of this project is to push for the inclusion of floorball in the Palarong Pambansa (national school games) elementary division as a demonstration sport in 2020.
FAT PIPE will also be the official floorball equipment provider of the Pilipinas Floorball national teams starting season 2018-19.
