Sweden men's national floorball team (2014)

The Sweden men's national floorball team is the national floorball team of Sweden, and a member of the International Floorball Federation. It has won eight out of ten men's world championships (1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2012 and 2014). Its dominance has decreased somewhat though – in 1996 the overall goal difference was 83–3, while ten years later, the team suffered its first draw in the tournament versus Switzerland, and needed sudden victory to defeat Finland in the final. In 2008, Finland defeated Sweden in overtime, giving Sweden its first loss in the World Floorball Championships. This loss happened in the final match, and therefore Sweden did not retain their 12-year title as world floorball champions. In 2012, Sweden defeated Finland and won the title for the first time in six years.
