Minneapolis

A big week of competition with over 1200 athletes all converging on Minneapolis and the Schwan Super Rink in Blaine.

The facility and host organisation all worked seamlessly to put on a wonderful week of the best broomball on the planet. The event is such that there are many who are friends from years past who plan the week to again come together and celebrate and make new friends in the process. In excess of 180 games in 4.5 days of intense competition gave rise to what some have said to be the best examples of finals broomball ever. The trophies and awards all presented to those clearly demonstrating they are worthy and the international recognition of excellence by those nominated into the new category of the IFBA Hall of Fame was quickly found to be a big hit with all at the banquet. 

The IFBA Board congratulates all the winners whom are listed below.
