Burkina Faso IFF Member no. 70
A new milestone for floorball was reached today, when the IFF Central Board approved the Burkina Faso Floorball Federation as IFF Member no. 70.
"During the last two years the IFF has been able to increase the number of member associations from 61 to 70, which is a substantial achievement and it’s even more positive to know that there are many more to come in the near future. We are extremely happy to see that the increased number of member associations are coming from all continents and at the time especially from Africa, after the first Africa Floorball Cup," says Mr. Tomas Eriksson, the IFF President.
There are currently 550 floorball players and 12 floorball clubs in Burkina Faso and the women's national team is the reigning Africa Floorball Cup champion.
