The 2010 Men's World Floorball Championships was the eighth men's Floorball World Championships. The tournament was held from 4 December to 11 December 2010 in the cities of Helsinki, and Vantaa, Finland.

This was the first world championships under the International Floorball Federation's (IFF) FIFA-like continental qualification system. A total of 32 countries had registered for this event, which is the most nations to ever register for an IFF-sanctioned world championship event. The previous record was 29 for the 2008 Men's World Floorball Championships.

Qualifying[edit]

Under the IFF's new qualification system, the 32 countries registered for the world championships had to qualify for only 16 spots. 8 of these spots had already been pre-determined, with the top 7 teams from the 2008 Men's World Floorball Championships A-Division and the top team from the B-Division automatically qualifying. This left just 8 spots for the other 24 registered countries.

The countries already qualified are as follows:

 Czech Republic     Finland
 Germany  Latvia
 Norway  Russia
 Sweden   Switzerland          

Asia/Oceania[edit]

Qualifying in the Asia/Oceanian region for the world championships will be overseen by the Asia Oceania Floorball Confederation (AOFC).

Only 3 out of 5 registered AOFC countries qualified. The 5 countries were as follows:

 Australia                Singapore           
 Japan South Korea Korea
 Malaysia

Note: India withdrew from world championships due to financial difficulties [1]

Europe[edit]

Only 4 out of 16 countries registered in Europe qualified. The 16 countries were as follows:

 Austria                  Belgium  Denmark  Estonia
 France  Georgia  Great Britain         Hungary             
 Italy  Liechtenstein         Netherlands  Poland
 Serbia  Slovakia  Slovenia  Spain

North America[edit]

Only 1 out of 2 countries registered in North America qualified. The 2 countries were as follows:

 Canada                  United States      

Groups[edit]

Ballots for the groups in this event were drawn on May 9, 2009, during one of the semi-final matches of the 2009 Men's under-19 World Floorball Championships in Turku, Finland.

In the way the ballots were drawn, no team qualified from the AOFC played against each other in group stage matches, and no team qualified from Europe either.

The groups were assembled based on qualifying as follows:

Group A Group B Group C Group D
 Finland  Latvia  Germany  Czech Republic    
 Russia   Switzerland  Sweden  Norway
Europe 1 AOFC 1 AOFC 3 AOFC 2
North America Europe 2 Europe 4 Europe 3
