EuroFloorball Cup (EFC) (called the European Cup until 2007) was first played in 1993. The first Men’s champion was the Swedish team, Balrog IK, and the first Women’s champion was VK Rasket, also from Sweden. After the 2000 World Championship, the tournament changed its format to a biennial event, but returned to the annual format in 2008.
EuroFloorball Cup is now played each year with the national champions from the countries ranked five and below all eligible to register. It is played with 6 men’s and 6 women’s teams in a 5-day competition format.
EuroFloorball Challenge (EFCh) is played in a similar format to the EFC and is played annually depending on the number of teams that register for EFC. If more than 6 teams register, then six teams are selected according to ranking, organising country, and previous EFCh winner to play the EFC, while the others compete in the EFCh. The winner of the EFCh receives automatic qualification for the EFC the following year.
