Tournament Information[edit]

Facts and history[edit]

The 2009 Men's under-19 World Floorball Championships were the first men's over-19 floorball championships that were held in the month of May, after the International Floorball Federation (IFF) changed their international tournament calendar format in 2008. Previously, the tournament was hosted in the months of either October or November.

Sweden came into the tournament as two-time defending champions, after having won the world championship in both 2005 and 2007. The Swedish team had also previously won a championship in 2001, but did not defend their title in 2003, as they would lose in the final to rivals, Finland. The Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, and Switzerland remain the only teams to have captured a women's under-19 world floorball championship medal.
