It was a fantastic day for Thai Floorball, when on Sunday, 1st May 2011 the Pattaya Floorball team beat the Floorball team from Bangkok with a very impressive score of 14-1 in the first ever official match of this new exciting sport in this country.
The entertaining match was really hard fought as the Bangkok team had a lot of physical strength and stamina, but the Pattaya team was technically superior.
Thailand is a provisional member of the International Floorball Federation and the sport is played in Pattaya, Bangkok, Hua Hin and Phuket. In Pattaya, Floorball is played every Sunday at 2 pm at the Pattaya Sport Complex located in Soi 5 off Potisan Road in North Pattaya.
Thailand needs to develop players for a National team as Floorball is expected soon to become an official Olympic sport. Therefore the match on Sunday was watched by a representative from the Thai Ministry of Defense, and as a result, the plan is now to have the Thai military set up Floorball teams in various cities around the country. These military teams will as such become the player base for a Thai National Floorball team together with players from other teams around Thailand.
We congratulate the Pattaya Floorball team with their great victory and for making Pattaya the leading city for Floorball in Thailand.
