Tournament information

  • Who may participate

    To Gothia Innebandy Cup all teams are welcome. The only condition is that the club is registered with its country’s floorball federation.

    The competition starts with a group play. The teams are divided into groups of five teams (with uneven number of teams in an age category some groups may contain six teams) where all teams will meet in a round robin series. The first and second team in the group qualifies for “play off A”, the other teams in the group qualifies for “play off B”.  All play off games will be decided by the cup system, which is by direct elimination.

    Class B11 is played in accordance with the rules of SIBF (Swedish Floorball Association). No play off will be played and no winner declared. Instead there will be a group play with 6-7 teams in each group.
