Nyt u19 system


IFF oplyser der kommer et nyt u19 system hvor der ikke er A og B spil
De skriver følgende :

New U19 World Floorball Championships playing system
Starting from the Women's U19 WFC in 2020 there will no longer be A- & B-divisions, but rather 16 teams playing in four groups, divided by ranking and ballot.

- The aim of the change is to increase the possibility for teams to reach the top eight, but also to stay in the top eight. With the A- & B-division system there has been just one team that has been relegated/promoted each time, and often the relegated team is the same one that receives promotion at the next event, creating a yo-yo effect for some countries between A- & B-divisions, IFF Competition Manager, Stefan Kratz explains.

The IFF Central Board approved this change to the playing system for the U19 World Championships last year, based on a proposal from the IFF Rules & Competition Committee (RACC).

The Women's U19 WFC 2020 will be played in Uppsala, Sweden, from 6th - 10th May. After the qualification event in September 2019, a ballot will take place to decide the groups. Read more here!

Note: In the previous newsletter there was incorrect information about an A- & B-division in the WU19 WFC 2020.
