Floorball is an fascinating new game being played across the world, especially in European and American colleges and universities. Played with a small plastic ball and long plastic sticks, it resembles Ice Hockey when watched. Players argue for the many differences between Ice Hockey and floorball, explaining that floorball requires less brawn and more brains than Ice Hockey. Over the years, this team sport has been gaining a large amount of popularity among the young people of America and Europe, and even such American colleges as Caltech have floorball teams.

Even more expressive of the growing popularity of this simple game are the aspirations of the International Floorball Foundation (IFF) to gain recognition of floorball as an Olympic sport by the year 2020. It will be very interesting to see this ever-more-popular sport gain the most honorable recognition by being instated into the ancient Olympic Games.
