At the biennial WFC, 16 teams will be split into four groups with each group playing a single round robin. The Singapore’s National women’s floorball team have been drawn into Group C with Germany, Australia and France.
Their participation in the WFC follows after their triumph against Thailand at the SEA Games 2023 in Cambodia, where they won their third straight gold medal.
The Singapore women’s floorball team will take on France on Dec 12 at OCBC Arena Hall at 8pm, before facing Australia the next day at the same time.
Singapore will then wrap up their group stage campaign against Germany on Dec 5. The knockout stages will take place from Dec 6 to 9, with the final happening on Dec 10 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The Singapore women’s team will aim to build on their triumph in Cambodia and improve on their previous best finish at the WFC of 12th place in 2019.
Kenneth Ho, president of the Singapore Floorball Association said: “Winning the SEA Games gold means a lot to us and we’re very proud of the women’s team for this achievement… I am confident that they are ready for the challenge ahead and they will prepare in the best way they can to bring glory to Singapore.
“It will be a great honour for the team to play at home in front of their family, friends and fellow Singaporeans as they look forward to giving them a good show.”
The teams with a higher world ranking based on the previous two editions of the Championships are drawn into Groups A and B, while teams with a lower ranking are drawn into Groups C and D.
Group A comprises Finland, Switzerland, Norway and Latvia, while Group B comprises Sweden, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia. Denmark, Japan, Estonia and the USA make up Group D.
The top two teams in Group A and B will advance to the quarter-finals directly while the remaining teams in each of these two groups will qualify for a play-off round against the top two teams of Group C and D.
The play-off winners progress to the quarter-finals, while the other teams will play matches to determine their final placings.
