IFF´s anti-doping awareness and education campaign - Say NO! to Doping
The campaign was first launched during the 8th Men’s World Floorball Championships 2010 in Finland when also the Finnish Anti-Doping Agency joined the campaign. Read more about the campaign in WFC 2010 from here.
||The aim of this campaign is to show IFF´s commitment to promoting education and awareness as a cornerstone to the fight against doping in sport.
The goal is to increase the awareness of Floorball players in the world of the importance of playing clean, respecting the spirit of true sport and fair play.
The campaign is launched in partnership with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
The International Floorball Federation (IFF) is the fourth International Federation (IF), along with the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), FIFA and the International Archery Federation (FITA), to join WADA’s Say NO! to Doping Campaign. Have a look at the IFF’s Say NO! to Doping flyer here.
Support clean sport!
There have been only a few Doping cases in Floorball and the aim is to keep the sport of Floorball clean also in the future. It is of great importance and that all Floorball players are aware of the risks of Doping for their sporting career as well as their health. The IFF is very pleased that many Floorball players from around the world are committed to spread the message of clean sport around the globe.

Why the green ball?
||The green colour come from the WADA logo that is described as follows:|
The colour green evokes health and nature and the field of play. The "play true" tag line encapsulates WADA´s core values and is intended as a guiding principle for all athletes at every level of competition. More information about the logo from here.
