Floorball is a type of floor hockey with five field players and a goalkeeper on each team. Men and women play indoors with 96–115.5 cm long sticks and a plastic ball – 22–23 cm in circumference – with holes. Matches are played in three twenty-minute periods.
Developed in the 1960s and 1970s in Sweden, floorball is most popular where it has been developed the longest, such as the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland. It is gaining popularity in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and the United States. As of 2014, there are over 300,133 registered floorball players worldwide. Professional leagues include Finland's Salibandyliiga and Sweden's Svenska Superligan. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floorball
