External tournaments


Tournaments are a great way to try out floorball matches. You play a day, or a weekend with a team and have fun in the matches and chilling in between matches. Especially if you're new and wondering about playing competition next year, this is a great introduction! Below you'll find information about when the tournaments are held, where they are, how long they are (with sleepover) and what the technical committee's approximation for the level is at the tournament. Some tournaments are taken much more seriously than others, where everyone is mostly just having a good time.

Big Mixed (Delft)

A large field tournament for mixed gender teams held in Delft. Each team should have at least 2 males and 2 females on the field. The tournament will start around 10:00 and end before 18:00 and is usually held on a Sunday. Expected costs ~20 euros/team and travel costs to Delft and back.
There is no official tournament website for Big Mixed.

HOT (Nijmegen)

This is a small field tournament where upto 12 teams will compete. It starts at 10:00 and ends at 18:00 at the latest and is usually held on a Sunday. HOT is held in the Radboud sportcentrum, Heyendaalseweg 141, Nijmegen. The teams are mixed gender, but at least two females need to play at all times. There will be lunch available for the teams. Expected costs less than 10 euros/person and travel costs to Nijmegen and back. Nice and relaxed tournament.

Floorball Meeting Munster (Munster)

Leave for Germany by train on friday evening. Camp on the grass field behind the gym in tents. Hang outside, play cardgames, drink and have fun in the evening. Saturday and Sunday are filled with the Swiss tournament. The tournament is for mixed gender. (Most participants are male, but we often go with mixed gender teams) Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. Held in late spring, so usually great weather! Get back in the evening on Sunday, when we often still go out for dinner with whoever wants to. Expected costs 45 euro/person and travel costs to Munster and back. Jamasi, the floorball shop is available at this tournament, if you'd like to buy new gear. Always a great atmosphere at this tournament as all German players see it as a chill down tournament. A lot of people at this tournament are joking around and having a good time, not necessarily taking the tournament very seriously, but we'll probably still get beat...

Groningen Floorball Open - GFO (Groningen)

Leave for Groningen on friday evening, having a fun evening with drinks and cardgames in the ACLO followed by playing large field games on saturday and sunday. The genders are not mixed here, there's a gents and a ladies tournament. Saturday evening there's a great party in ACLO and/or people sometimes go to Groningen city centre after. We can sleep in the sportshall for this tournament. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the tournament. Expected costs ? euros and travel costs to Groningen and back.
Check here for the official tournament website of GFO.

Amsterdamned (Amsterdam)

High level international large field tournament that distinguishes between a tournament for gents and ladies. Matches start on friday morning and the last ones are played on sunday. You play both Dutch teams but also teams from different nationalities (i.e. Czech, Swiss, Belgian, French, Latvian and more) We need to fix our own lodgings in Amsterdam, nothing is organised by the tournament itself for sleeping accomodations. Could be that there's a party or bbq, but that's not certain. There's a floorball shop available at this tournament, if you'd like to buy new gear.

Check here for the official tournament website of Amsterdamned.

Bielefelder Floorball Cup - BFC (Bielefeld)

A cool 'small' tournament where we play Swiss variant of floorball with twelve teams. It takes place on a saturday in the inexistent city of Bielefeld, from 10:00 - 19:00. We fix cars to get there. It's the Swiss variant of floorball with mixed teams, though most participants are males. You need to bring your own lunch and on the way back we mostly visit MacDonalds or Burger King. Big perk? The Bielefelders bake tons of cakes and pies and you can eat as many as you like, leaving a tip for their efforts. Yummie!

Check under events for the official tournament website of BFC.

International tournament - Holiday week with Messed Up

In the summer holidays Messed Up often joins a tournament somewhere in another country. We say we go there to play floorball, but we might actually go there because it's fun to go on holiday with Messed Uppers. We have been to Prague (Czech Open) and Bratislava (Slovak Open) before. A decision is still to be made where we will go this year (and when that would be).

In Prague and Bratislava we rented large appartements to stay in with everyone. We spent time exploring the cities and culture, doing fun activities together going out for dinner and drinks or staying in the appartment playing games and chilling. This is usually a few days before the actual tournament, by that time the players all take the matches very seriously and try to get a good result. It is also possible to join these trips, without actually participating in the tournament.
