Gothia Innebandy Cup’s participants get to see floorball at its bestThe Gothia Innebandy Cup and Pixbo Wallenstam IBK offers the tournament’s 10,000 participants the chance to see top class floorball when Pixbo Wallenstam meets Helsingborg in Partille Arena, January 4th.
“It’s incredibly exciting to showcase the region’s best floorball for the next generation of floorball players,” says Pixbo Wallenstam’s Club Director Fredrik Edendahl.
It has become tradition to offer our participants the opportunity to see top level floorball during the Gothia Innebandy Cup, but in recent years the difficulty has been to gain access to an arena large enough. It is with great pleasure both Gothia Innebandy Cup and Pixbo Wallenstam are able to resume the tradition in a newly built and hyper modern arena like Partille Arena. “We are extremely happy that we can use Partille Arena and that there in fact is a brand new arena in the region that can handle the capacity required. It is exciting to offer our participants the chance to see floorball at the absolute highest level while at the same time a good opportunity for us to gather our participants so they can meet” says Lena Rönnefors, Gothia Innebandy Cup’s Tournament Director.
The Swedish Super League (SSL) match between Pixbo Wallenstam and Helsingborg is played Thursday, January 4th.
“We want to give the next generation floorball players something to look forward to, learn from and that can give them even more energy to one day play in the red and white striped jersey. Our players love to showcase on the field and they look forward to meeting, talking to and writing autographs for the kids after the game. We want to meet the audience and this match is something everyone is looking forward to”, says Fredrik Edendahl, Pixbo’s Club Director (General Manager?).
The attendance record in SSL, apart from the playoffs, is from the match Pixbo Wallenstam vs Linköping. The match was played in Scandinavium during the Gothia Innebandy Cup 2012 with 10 111 spectators.
