Canada beat United States to qualification place for IFF Men’s World Championships

Canada secured the qualification spot for the Americas in the International Floorball Federation (IFF) Americas Men's World Championship after a 5-4 win over the United States earned them overall victory in their weekend play-off in Toronto.

The home side won the first of the two scheduled matches at Ryerson University yesterday by 3-2.

In the IFF rankings, the United States arrived for this qualification event ranked 11th, with Canada 12th.

The sides were evenly matched - as both results demonstrated.

This weekend’s competition follows qualification events which have already taken place in Asia/Oceania and across Europe.

The Czech capital Prague is due to host the World Championships between December 1 and 9 this year.

Finland are the defending champions.
