The Australian Floorball Association
The Australian Floorball Association was incorporated in New South Wales in 1997. The founders were Rainer and Leif Martiskin and Toni Kokkonen.
The Australian Floorball Open
The Australian Floorball Open is our national tournament held annually in various states. The inaugural AFO was held in New South Wales in 2001. This is an open tournament, not an elite one, and we welcome participation from international teams as well. Originally called The Australian Floorball Association Club Championships the name was changed to Australian Floorball Open in 2003.
Below is a list of winners since inception. As we do not have details of some of the earlier AFOs and have had to gather this from various sources, please advise us if you feel any of this is incorrect so we can amend the data.
