The last time, the Czech Republic hosted WFC, was in 2008. Although the Czech team didn´t win, the audience was great and thanks to the event, floorball became very popular between teenagers and young people and now it can boast 2nd “position” of the most played sports here. So do not miss this event during which you can enjoy not only the matches but also pre-Christmas atmosphere in Prague.
