The next IFF Champions Cup will take place on 15/16th January 2022 in Winterthur, Switzerland. The international club tournament should have taken place in Winterthur already this January, but the event had to be cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
After seven years, the IFF Champions Cup was supposed to have taken place in Switzerland again this January, which, unfortunately, did not happen. Winterthur can now look forward to holding the next event. The city will host the four national champions of the leading nations Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic and Switzerland, who will be playing for the international club title on 15/16th January 2022.
Originally, the IFF Champions Cup was planned to be held in Finland in 2022. Because the WFC in Helsinki had to be postponed by a year, the Finnish Floorball Federation would have had to carry out two events in the same month. For this reason, it was decided that Switzerland should organize the IFF Champions Cup in 2022 and Finland would host it in 2023.
Four of the eight participants already determined
The participating teams from Switzerland have already been determined: the Kloten-Dietlikon Jets and Floorball Köniz were crowned as Swiss champions. Until now, only one champion each has been set for Finland and Sweden. In Finland, the men’s team Classic won the Champions Cup, and the Best-of-7-Series is taking place tomorrow Thursday for the women, with SB-Pro and PSS meeting for the decisive match. The women of Thorengruppen IBK earned the title in Sweden. The men’s final had to be moved to 2nd May, because some players in the semifinal series had tested positive for COVID-19. Falun and Storvreta will be playing for the Swedish championship title. In the Czech Republic the final will take place in June.
