The Men’s World Floorball Championship due to take place in Bern and Zurich between 2 and 9 December 2012 represents the biggest floorball event ever to be held in Switzerland. Under the motto “get delighted”, Switzerland will host the Men’s World Floorball Championships for the second time after holding the event in 2004.
Only 12 months after the Women’s World Championships played out in St. Gallen, the Sporthalle Wankdorf (Bern) and the Saalsporthalle (Zurich) will play host to the group games, minor placing playoffs and quarter finals between 2 and 7 December. It has already been determined that the Swiss team will play its group games and, if successful, its quarter final in Bern. The deciding games on the final days of the tournament, 8 and 9 December, will take place at the Hallenstadion in Zurich; the first time floorball has ever been played at this venue.
